A trip to the ER
Our day started at the doctor’s office with pink eye…but, I didn’t earn my newest parenting stripes until after bedtime. My 4 year old got a Polly Pocket shoe stuck up her nose. We tried everything but weren’t able to retrieve the doll’s pink pump.
So…..off to the emergency room we go. Most kids would have been freaked out. Not mine. It was like a huge field trip! “We are going to stay up all night long!!!” she said. Hard to believe she knew nothing about the ER but sensed that we might be there awhile.
We settled into a room and occupied her with games until we could be seen. About an hour into the visit…still no doctor. But, she did take a nasty sneezing fit that produced our pink Polly Pocket pump. Crisis averted. All is well.
Mom does have a few more grey hairs…but, isn’t that’s what parenting is all about anyway???
Would love to hear your story!!! Your kid has done this right?????????
