there's no where quite as fun or scary as the pediatrician's office.

the girls recently visited the pediatrician's office for their well-child check-ups.  

mad had no problems accepting that, at any time, the nurse would walk in with a tray full of shots.  in fact, the whole time we were waiting, she danced in the room.  and climbed the steps.  and actually jumped on the examination bed - while chanting something nonsensical.  

lil did not participate in such tomfoolery.   i had assured her several times that she would not receive any immunizations.  she merely scoffed and laid on the bed stiff as a board with the look of doom on her face.  you'd think the ceiling had a sign that said "the end is near".  also. it might.  i didn't look.  and mad can't read.  so that could explain a bit.  


idk if this picture necessarily makes me happy.  but it sure does make me laugh.

  1. Hahhahhaa man...

    I want to lie stiff as a board and say, "just get this &#^(*^@& week over with!!"

    Man see? I am still worthless.

    Is there a shot to cure whining? Wait...there might be...

  14. The best I can recall, our kiddoes didn't do too much frolicking in the examination room, but they weren't too afraid, either. I guess the reason being is we did not go to the doctor's office unless it was for an annual physical or for routine shots. By the time they were school age, then all I had to do was to explain what I thought they could expect and they were really cool about it. I don't know what I did to deserve such good kiddoes! Thanks for visiting today. BTW, your girls are so precious~ Your newest follower, Cathy

  18. Oh my. Laughing really hard here.

    I remember MY shots and taking my CHILDREN for shots and taking my GRANDCHILDREN for shots.

    And I think that expression is the one we all have on our face!

    This was such a sweet post and brought back so many memories.

    Thank you for this outstanding link to the letter "O".
