What was that?

Yesterday I took Kinley for his 18 month check up and shots. We didn't have our usual nurse who we love, so we were a little disappointed (at least I was). Anyway, after seeing the Nurse Practioner, who we also love, we proceeded to wait 25 minutes for a nurse to come to give Kinley his shots!!! Give me a break. Sitting in a small room with things all around he CAN'T touch with a little boy who wants DOWN! Needless to say it was not very fun. Thankfully Grandma Van went with us so at least we had two people to try and entertain him. The nurse finally came in then went back out because she had forgot papers for us. When she actually did give Kinley his shots he just looked at her for the first one like "What did you just do?" He didn't cry or move. The second one he looked at her, gave one cry then was done. He's so brave! :) What I thought would be a fairly quick trip turned into an hour and a half. Glad that's over!

I hate when people leave parents with kids waiting. Seriously, its the hardest thing to do to entertain them in situations like that. Kudos to you.

we had the same experience last week.....gabe was actually climbing the walls, inspecting the cupboards...it was a real adventure let me tell ya. then the silly nursing student let him play with her stethescope--which he loved---then changed her mind and said oh he might break it and literally broke his heart...what a nut! we went to visit kentland last week, wow has that place changed! it's so much bigger!!hey, when do you want to do a playdate again?

Poor guy. I just hate to see my kids get shots. And that exact situation has happened to me before. When it has happened to me, it seems like all the sudden someone turned the furnace on 125 and the walls just start caving in!

I have my surgery planned for June 18, if nothings changes. He said I will be on crutches for 3 weeks, so this will be very interesting w/ a 2 yr old and a baby.
