Well, one sick girl and one tired,cranky girl.
I decide to take Sophie (the sick one) to urgent care. The cranky one starts coming down with all kinds of symptoms, so I agree to take her, too. She had been coughing the last two nights (see:tired,cranky).
It is literally standing room only at the Urgent Care.
Two and a half hours later ... we are finally called back.
Scenes from a waiting room...
- Maddie is coloring. She asks me, "what does this crayon say?" "Fuschia", I say. "POO-SHA? I'm coloring POO-SHA?!?!?!?!"
- Maddie, to the elderly lady sitting next to us, "Why are you sticking your tongue out at me? I'm Maddie Claire."
- After about an hour and a half plus two potty breaks, Maddie announces, "Mommy! I just pee-peed on my leg!" Mommy is horrified. Then she says, "Just kidding." Now, Mommy is even more horrified - she realizes Maddie has inherited her daddy's sense of humor.
All of this with a shaking, whimpering, feverish 4 year old in my lap.
