Today we had a few appointments. I planned well and actually had help. Cecilia got here at 7 with tacos in hand. I woke up 20 minutes late and that feeling of panic seemed to stay with me all day.
First appointment was to pediatrician for Charlie's two month shots and checkup. She is 13.6 lbs!! 90th percentile for weight and 70th for height. She had to get three shots...a scream and very little crying. She hated taking tylenol but that was worst of it.
We went home to change and feed the beasts. Boys only got a 30 minute nap before we had to leave again since they were playing in their room for so long. This was the beginning of the end. Fits the whole way there and the whole time we were in the waiting room. Once in a room with the assistant ..Reese went potty and it leaked. The wait ended ilup stretching so long that Cecilia had to take my car to pickup Zoe just as we got called into eye Dr office. I had three crying babies, two needed to be held down while eyes were dialated. Another 30 minute wait for their eyes to dialate in the waiting room. We were surrounded by cast of cocoon ..all not really appreciative of my screaming boys.
Once we got to talk to Dr he tells me that Reese needs glasses. He was shocked his old Dr had not given them. He is 4.0 farsighted. Ricky is 5.5. He also explained why surgery isn't a good option for Ricky at this age. Basically kids eyes can become less farsighted as they grow older. Usually around 6 years old. His eyes cross because he is straining to see. The surgery only corrects the crossing, not the vision, so he would need glasses reguardless.
Now we need to go to Eye Deal Vision to turn in the script. GREAT SERVICE! Grand total with including insurance is around $400 for Reese and Ricky. Not bad for two sets of lenses and frames. I decided to get different colors but both blue. Reese is so excited!
I'm totally worn out. Whoever thought three little ones with no naps and two major appointments on the same day would be a good idea...is a dumbass.
