Longest Day of the Year
It's important for me to set the stage, so that you can fully understand the "length" of my day. It was 85 degrees outside, and the Dr.'s office didn't have A/C. Our visit started with a weigh in, and a height check. (Simple...you would think.) Jack wasn't a fan of the scale. He jumped off after a brief second. He melted into a puddle when they tried to measure his height...so he was 3 inches shorter than he should have been.
When Dr. Nikki arrived.....the weight and height didn't measure up, big surprise! We needed a re-do...so she called in BACK-UP. It took three adults to hold Jack firmly to the table. By this point, Jack was chanting....I go....I go....I go.....(Or maybe that was my inner voice.) Next was our second weigh in. I held Jack on the scale and then passed him off to Dr. Nikki while they weighed me. Meanwhile Jack screamed "Mommy" while the poor Dr. tried to console him. The nurse subtracted the two weights to get Jack's.
