My kids are out of school today for a teacher workday so I have scheduled to take all three of them to the dentist for a cleaning.
While it is convenient to do them all at once, it is also generally stressful. This plan works better when you have more than one hygienist (or hair stylist) to work on them simultaneously. Then I just pop from room to room and everyone is done at the same time.
The last time I took them all to this dentist, Walsh stayed in the waiting room with a book while the girls were worked on. I kept popping out to check on him and each time he was gabbing with a new person. (No surprise there!) We were pretty good until two were waiting on the last one and then they got unruly.
They also got in trouble for putting their hands in a waterfall display in the office. It’s a fairly large one and the nurse said it had chemicals in the water. (I guess chlorine.)
I keep considering taking them for the flu shots in the morning but I’m not sure I can stand two terrible things in one day. But it would be so great to get that knocked off the list!
I also can’t stand taking kids to the post office. Invariably it takes forever and they end up wrestling or running by the post office boxes.
What places or things do you hate to take your kids? Would you go for the efficiency of scheduling all three kids at once for dentist or doctor’s appointments or would that make you crazy?
