Kids are notorious for being their worst selves at the doctor and embarrassing the hell out of their parents.
Well, there is a reason for that. 2 hour waits in the waiting room!
I took Theo to the doc on Saturday, yes, a SATURDAY, because of his ongoing cough. For the first hour he was a perfect angel. He played with the toys in the waiting room while I watched Lady in the Tramp for the 70th time (that movie and Bambi are the only movies this doctor has for some reason...they can certainly take some of mine). Luckily I love those movies.
During the second hour Theo got rowdy, understandably. By the time we were in the doctor's room he was crawling under some furniture, climbing on other furniture, and touching everything that had a wire. My inital reaction was to feel embarassed about not being able to control my kid, but I resented them for taking two hours and being the reason I had to feel that way in the first place. Theo would have been his cute, charming, awake self had they seen him sooner. Sheesh.
Well, ain't a mama got a right to rant?
