Chicks only...

DISCLAIMER: If you're a guy, just stop reading now. Seriously. Just walk away. I know a few posts back I blogged about cars and such, but this ain't one of those. Trust me. Come back tomorrow, but leave this one alone.

Okay...

Yesterday, I had the big yearly exam. You know the one I'm talking about. The one we all fear and dread. Or is that just me? Anyway, one of life's necessary evils. So, as a stay-at-home mom, I have 2 options: take my 2 kids with me or find someone else to watch them. Well, that's an obvious choice, no? Burge graciously volunteered to take off from work to be the sitter. I gave him the choice of either staying home with them or all of us going. Seeing how we still have no TV and I did promise him a meal out, he decided that we'd all go.

Nothing like a trip to the gynecologist for some family bonding. Ahem.

I was telling Abby as we were getting dressed where we were going. As in, Mommy has to go to the doctor. For what? Well, it's just a check-up. To get your flu shot? No, Mommy's not getting a shot. What are they going to do? Ummmm, well, it's just a check-up. But, what are they going to do? (Now, let me interject here that I am not one of those parents who believe in full disclosure. I want the simplest answer that will satisfy the curiosity. I realize that may come back to bite me in the butt later. I'll deal with that fallout then. Um-kay?) Well, they'll take my blood pressure (Good thing they're not doing it now, 'cause my neck and face are about to explode!). With the thing that they wrap around your arm and pump up? Yes. Silence. I'm holding my breath. Neat! And breathe out.

Crisis averted. Let's just leave the flu shot as the most traumatic thing about the doctor's office for a while longer, shall we?
