Seriously, I don’t know what it is about going to the pediatrician that turns me into a blithering idiot.
I ask her some seriously inane questions; questions that my usually-logical self could probably answer on my own. Here are some gems I/my husband came up with on our recent 9 month well visit.
Question: What is that arch on the back of her neck, is she hunchbacked?
Answer from Ped: It’s just a little bit of fat that’s making her seem that way, she’s doing great!
Q: Do we have to worry about Olive sucking her thumb…and it causing her to have crooked thumbs?
A: Well, usually people worry about crooked teeth because of the thumb sucking….but no, don’t worry about crooked thumbs.
Q: If she has crooked baby teeth, will she have crooked adult teeth?
A: No, just like if you have awesome baby teeth, you aren’t guaranteed to have awesome adult teeth!
My pediatrician seriously is the best – she always answers with patience, and kindness in her eyes. If i were her I would have left the room 25 questions ago.
