Today was LittleM’s 4 year old doctor check-up and it was a big girl appointment. It was such a big step!
Not to be gross, but LittleM had to pee in a cup for the first time today. It was hysterical. When the nurse told me that she needed it, LittleM said, “I have to pee in a cup?! Why? That’s so weird,” and laughed all the way to the bathroom. It took a few minutes for her to finally feel comfortable doing it because she kept saying ,”But I’m supposed to pee in the toilet! I don’t want to pee in a cup!”. We eventually got it done, and she said it was funny in the end.
We also had her first eye test. Both my husband and I wear glasses so it was nice to hear that she did great on the test and didn’t need them yet!
LittleM got through the visit with no fuss, even doing well with her vaccines. It’s amazing to me everyday watching and listening to her learn. Any word that she does not know, she immediately asks what it means. I had to explain what vaccine meant, and then hearing her connect my explanation with other conversations we have had was so impressive.
Overall it was a great visit, and we are really lucky to have found the pediatrician that we did.
We’re laying a good foundation now with her to get all the information that she can from doctor visits, never be afraid to ask questions, and leave the doctor office feeling that you are valued and have been taken care of.
It was a good day.
