Dr's Visit

Phoenix had his 4 month check up today, and we decided it would be a good time to get Audrey her flu vaccinations. The last time we went to the Dr's, Audrey was still using her binky. Her Doctor took it away from her and said that she shouldn't use it anymore. The whole thing was a bit traumatizing for her. After she got off her binky I told her that the next time she sees her doctor she can tell him that she doesn't use her binky anymore. I should also mention that playing "doctor" is one of Audrey's favorite games. Phoenix will be our patient and Audrey pats on his stomach, shines Trav's flashlight all over Phoenix, and she will give him medicine if she deems it neccesary. He loves it.

So we were in the check-up room, and in walks the doctor...

Audrey: HI DOCTOR!!! I DON'T USE A BINKY ANYMORE! (I used caps because she was talking so loudly, and excitedly), playing "doctor" has really gotten Audrey excited about the whole thing.

The doctor congratulated her and told her that she was a big girl. Then after a few minutes he asked her what she wants to be when she grows up.

Audrey: Phoenix is getting two shots today

Doctor: What do you want to be when you grow up (he had to repeat his question because she obviously did not answer it the first time he asked)?

Audrey: Oh! A Chicken!

Audrey really likes chickens....
