I could tell he was nervous so we read a few books during our wait. We did weigh because Z has been saying he weighed six pounds confusing the concept of weight with age. The nurse showed him the numbers but not sure if he's convinced yet. Fifty one pounds is not six pounds.
What do you do when a nervous non-sick child is in the doctor's office? Well, I handed him my camera and the time passed quickly.
He practiced saying, "Awwww"
Funny faces, rolling stools
and many self portraits
on exam table
And the wonderful doctor who agreed with an old lady who has seen many child rashes in her life time. No reason to send him home. No fever. The camera was a great "toy" and 136 pictures later Z is released to return to school. I sincerely believe rosy cheeks were the result of running in sunshine.
