i've never had to take my kids with me to the gynecologist. i didn't even know it could be done. but, when it's time for the yearly visit & your only two friends in town are unavailable to babysit, it has to be done. so the girls & i drove downtown this morning & met my new OBGYN, dr. bradley. when i made the appointment a few weeks ago, i tried my hardest to find a female doctor in the city who was taking new patients. exhausted, i called one recommended clinic & said i had no preference for a doctor. the receptionist on the phone said, "dr. bradley is open. oh, you'll like him. he's cute. hee hee." how awkward. i think i'd actually prefer a homely OBGYN.
and let me tell you, kids will ask many questions in the examination room. violet was quiet & chewing on a toy. annabelle was trying to see around the privacy curtain, under the privacy curtain, and anywhere i didn't want to be peeking. she held my hand when my blood was drawn, asked me how much i weighed after i got off the scale, & wanted to know why our doctor left the room so quickly. friends, i am so glad it is the weekend.
