The boys had their 5 year old check up. . . and it was quite entertaining! Between peeing in a cup, "the cough", and shots ~ Dad is going next time!
1. The cup - well we can barley make it into the toilet on a regular basis. . . so peeing in the cup was quite the entertaining challenge. First I was supposed to clean the tip. . mmmmmmmm! They thought this was very weird and so did I. Than I held the cup and tried to explain peeing in the cup. Well after about 5 minutes of hysterics we were all on the bathroom floor laughing covered with pee and then there was a knock on the door from the nurse, "Everything okay in there?"
My response "Oh yes having a great time.
2. Then it was off to pull down the pants and cough. Now I have heard about this but was under the impression I would never witness it or especially be part of it! Apparently turning your head and coughing while the Dr. is pushing is pretty tricky. They
couldn't pull it off without a lot more laughing and our pediatrician was now on the floor laughing with us. He commented these boys are a SKIT! Your telling me. Every time he told them to turn their head they would turn their whole body, and he would have a cute little 5 year old buns in his face.
3. Now the shots which we had been talking about since 7 in the morning and agonizing over. Remind me to tell them right before next time. Way too much time to talk about shots. Well, one brother had to leave the room so they wouldn't wittness the other brother getting the shot. . . which is worse than getting the shot themselves. Kinkade was a trooper , and let's just say Mr. Drama was NOT!
We left the doctors office 2.5 hours later. . . I've never been so exhausted! Dad is going to the 6 year check up with the boys no exceptions!
