Things I’ve learned

It’s time for another instalment of…
Things I have learned!

The fastest way to get a pediatrician’s appointment is to mention that your child can’t breathe.
The fastest way to get a vet’s appointmen is to mention blood, pus and oozing sore. (Trust me you don’t want to know. Suffice it to say that the words “don’t let him outside for a few days so that no flies or maggots get into it” were uttered. I am proud to say that I didn’t toss my cookies…)

When you have wrenched your back picking up a tantruming toddler to throw her, euh, I mean gently place her, in her stroller doesn’t help in the least. Four Advil swallowed shortly after this incident do help.

Cleaning up your house while your toddler is around doesn’t work. She is likely to try to “help” thus making your job twice as hard. It’s probably best to just pretend that a tornado has hit your house when your mother arrives and looks horrified.

Just because you go to the mall and getting a full refund on something you return, if you end up purchasing more things than the value of the refund you are not actually saving money. (Even if you only bought things for the baby.)
If you top off the evening with a $100 vet visit then you are most definitely not saving money.
