I made Devon be the one to take him.
And it's a good thing, because if I walked in to the room and saw this contraption, I would have thought, Oh holy hell, what have we gotten into???
But let me tell you what an awesome kid we have. Before the appointment, we told him that he and Daddy were going to have a special sleepover at the doctor's office. We said that they were going to put sticky things all over his head, and that Daddy was going to take his picture because he was going to look so silly.
And you know what? He let them do it!
He sat there perfectly still while they hooked him up and watched Monsters, Inc. And when it was time to go to sleep...he did! And slept 8 straight hours!
Woo hoo! I don't think I'd be able to sleep 8 straight minutes if I looked like this!
Results in three weeks!
Seamus is not the only one to surprise us this week...some of you may have heard that Grace hit her head on Monday and lost consciousness. At the ER, they told us she would need a CT scan.
But don't worry, they said...no sedation is necessary. We'll just restrain her.
Of course, I'm thinking what any good mother would think...PLEASE SEDATE HER!! I've seen what restrained kids look like, and it's not pretty.
But Grace rocked it...she laid right down on the table, let them strap her entire body in sheets of Velcro, and remained perfectly still staring at a Nemo sticker that I was anxiously bouncing through the air on my finger. The scan came back just fine, and she's told everyone who asks, "I got a boo-boo and dey tooka pit-cher uh ma head."
I don't know how it happened...I thought I still had a few years before my kids became braver than me! Have your kids surprised you in ways like this?
