A LOUD Visit

I know that most everyone fears the Doctor's office and public bathrooms...but Audrey has an above average fear of both.

I had a Doctor's appointment on Monday, usually Travis is there to stay with Audrey in the waiting room but he couldn't come yesterday. As soon as I opened the door from the waiting room to the main part Audrey started shrieking and trying to run back to the waiting room. "I want to stay there, I want to stay there" is what she yelled. Then I had to use the bathroom...let's just say I wouldn't doubt that everyone in the office heard Audrey. When I came out there were a few nurses standing around looking...bewildered. I kept telling Audrey that we were there for me, not for her, I bribed her with jelly beans, a nurse gave her a book, and she still was wailing at the top of her lungs. Once we got to the check up room I held Audrey and read her a book and by the time the Dr. came in she was fine. He said to me "I was wondering who was making all that noise".

So, if this is how she was for an appointment that wasn't even for her, how will she be for her 3 yr old check up next week? Yeah...I am not looking forward to it.

CJ HATES the doctor too. i swear she will never tell us when she is sick because she hates it so much. she does fine when it's me at the doctor though (thank goodness!) wish i had some better advice. . .
