Poor little Ayla Baby has a chest infection, we took her to the doctors yesterday which was funny because she looked about as sick as… well not a very sick person in the waiting room. We were waiting for over an hour and for a 15 month old 1 hour is like an eternity!
We started off with a book which was quite civilised until it came to the tiger pictures which instilled loud roaring much to the other patients surprise. Which quickly turned to wanting ‘down’ so I gave her the car keys and one of her toy figures which lasted all of about 5 mins which then became a dance around the waiting room and waddling up and down the corridor with either me or mum attempting to herd her in directions that were least offensive to the other people waiting in the surgery. She did spot a gentleman on a mobility scooter and pointed quite excitedly ‘Tractor! Tractor!’ … I suppose a sit on scooter vaguely represents her sit-on toy tractor.
Just when we thought we had run out of ammunition to keep her amused mum whipped out a pencil and paper from her handbag which held Ayla’s attention until we were finally seen.
Really lovely doctor and it turns out I wasn’t an over-reacting-first-time-parent and she has a chest infection or touch of croup, she wasn’t sure but either way Ayla has some medicine and is on the mend.
So we spent the rest of today being ill…..not!
We played tents!
And did LOTS of drawing and colouring in the kitchen, which was accompanied by lots of chatting.
Then we played more tents!
Had a lovely visit from Uncle Grant too and managed to actually fall asleep eating lunch!
Here’s to not being ill! And to taking my neck brace off for a whole day for the first time in over three months!!! Woo Hoo!! I never want to wear one again!
I leave you with….
Eating corn-on-the cob for the first time!
