What I have been trying to do is squeeze in all possible appointments this month so I don't have to worry about it later. This means that so far this week I've taken the dog to the vet, myself to a prenatal appointment, and tomorrow I have a dentist appointment. After taking a toddler and a dog to the vet, going to the dentist by myself tomorrow will seem like a vacation.
|Mommy, this place is FILTHY. Let me help.|
|Do I get a lollipop after my shots?|
Now the dog should be set for a year, unless she tries to kill herself again with toxic mold/mushrooms in the yard.
At least my 37 week appointment at the OB office was pretty easy because Faith freaking loves that place.
|Are we going to the place where they want your pee?|
|This place is SO FUN! Now where is my sticker?|
Faith gets so overexcited for her post-appointment sticker that she starts shouting "STICKER! STICKER! STICKER?" as soon as the doctor closes my file. I don't really get the appeal since she usually loses it within 15 minutes, but I guess I just don't understand the 2 year old mind.
My 37 week appointment went fine. I feel a little silly going to the doctor every week because the doctor sits down and is like "So, what's new? Any questions?" and I'm like "No...I was just here. I feel like I've been pregnant for 4 years, so I have no questions left". The doctor always seems disappointed that I don't have any questions or concerns. Maybe I should research before I go and try to stump the doctor next time?
Since it was nice outside today, I decided to let Faith decorate her pumpkins outside. I didn't want to carve them because then she wouldn't be able to do it (toddler with a knife? No.) so I let her color them with markers. I was worried she would think it was lame, but again...I guess I don't understand the mind of a 2 year old.
|This is MINE?|
|I can't believe I'm allowed to do this|
|Behold my greatest creation!|
In fact, drawing on pumpkins was so exciting that she had to run laps to calm herself down:
|Time for wind sprints!|
Faith highly recommends "Markers and Pumpkins" as a fun toddler activity. We now have the most uniquely decorated pumpkins on the street.
Do you ever schedule all of your appointments in clusters, or do you space them out? I normally do the cluster method because once I remember to schedule one, then I remember to schedule the others too.
Any ideas for funny pregnancy questions for me to give my doctor next week?
I hope everyone appreciated the lack of the word "anus" in today's blog post.
