..but not for me..I detest the Rooty. It required massive amounts of napkins, an inordinate amount of whipped cream and a poor excuse for a serving of fruit disgused as strawberry syrup, oh and no kid utensils. However, my little man who just recieved 4 shots in the legs at the doctor felt it was way better than a bandaid and a kiss from Momma. He wins.
At the doctor, we learned we slightly suck as parents. But we are both ok with that. We shouldn’t be feeding L goldfish crackers or fruit snacks, but we do, by the truckful. We shouldn’t be encouraging the chupi, which we don’t, but often way easier than listening to the screaming. I will be better. My little guy is a bit skinny but the doctor is ok with it…and he is not a fan of milk but the doctor is ok with it. The doctor is also a HUGE Fan of L speaking spanish and says he should be fluent by the time he is 2. Ayudame Dios…or God help me.
One of the shots we got today was the MMR. Believe me, I was a bit nervous but we had to fill out a questionnaire first.
1.Does your child try to get your attention to the item he is playing with. Um yes.
2. Does your child use his pointer finger to get the item he is looking at. God yes and with a across the body flourish..but I just circled yes.
3. Does your child remove his clothing and name his body parts. Um hello? That was an actual question. I read that outloud to J and he looked at me like “so that’s normal”? I circled yes and realized that wow, my kid is weird to me but apparently all kids are weird. 🙂 Kidding.
I asked the doctor about the stripping and love of nakedness. SHe said go with it, um duh..what do you think I have been doing? She said have a naked weekend. Um welcome to my home, don’t mind the penis running around all loosey goosey. But she said if all else fails…wait for it…duct tape. Holy crap! She wasn’t kidding. So guess what I am buying when I head to walgreens…(stop laughing Alison)…I’m buying Al’s xmas present and a roll of duct tape. The doctor did say only on the diaper not on the wrists or mouth. Damn.
My little friend is clothed, tylenol dosed, and asleep. Gracias a Dios.
