Macy had the last of her required kindergarten appointments today!! My baby girl is all set for school!! These last 5 years sure flew by!
She had her 5 year checkup/shots on Tuesday. Did you know that she is the average height of a 7 1/2 year old? I knew she was tall, she's always been off the growth charts for height, but wow, that put it into perpective when the pediatrician said that!! For the first time ever, she threw a fit with the shots! This is the girl (Jack is the same) that never flinched, cried or shed a tear when getting immunizations in the past! Me and another nurse had to hold her down while the third nurse gave her the shot! And ya know what, the shots didn't hurt her a bit, she just got herself worked up. I've heard about this happening with a lot of 5 year olds! Poor girl!! But, she's very healthy, tall and average weight, 50th percentile for weight.
Today, she went to the dentist. She was perfect there! She loved having her teeth cleaned and the fluoride applied. We learned that she has a permanent tooth coming up behind one of her front baby teeth. She later said "I wondered what that thing popping up was!" I guess she didn't feel it important to tell me she had a "thing popping up" in her mouth! So, I need to scurry and get a tooth fairy holder made! He also said the dreaded "B" word!!! Looks like she'll follow in Mommy's footsteps and have braces when she gets a little older! $$UGH!$$
Afterwards, since they were both so good, Jack stood quietly and nicely in the corner watching have her teeth cleaned, I took them to the bouncy playplace in the mall and got them 20 minutes of bouncing. I was trying to wear them out so Jack would be not as wild during lunch!! We had pizza and then headed to the library so they could finally get their own library cards!!
