Whew! Glad I'm not the only one who overreactes to the sniffles or a bump. My husband thinks I'm INSANE! But I imagine the worst all the time. My daughter slipped in the shower the other day. She landed on her ribs. I immediately overreacted and rushed her to urgent care. I had visions of a cracked rib puncturing a lung floating in my demented mommy brain. The folks at urgent care were nice. Assuring me that's it's always best to play it safe... or maybe they want to be assured of their continued payments from my insurance company. In any case, they made me feel better about my craziness. Or as "better" as a crazy person can feel. I don't know if it's comething that happens to every women once she gives birth. I mean, I have friends who let their 6 year-olds scooter down to the park on their own. Or feel perfectly comfortable being in the house whipping up guacomole while their little one swims in the pool unattended (they've had lessons after all!) That's just not me. I don't know if it's good or bad. I don't know if it's too much coddling and will lead to dysfunction later in life. It's just me. And my kid has to live with it. Lucky her!

Glad I'm not the only crazy one. And I dont trust doctors one bit. Whenever I take micah to one, we end up sitting for 45 min in the waiting room with 25 other sick kids snotting and vomiting all over the place. Then we get to the doctor and she just tells us to let nature take its course. And I pay her for that "nugget" of wisdom? Hmm... So then we go home and I get sick too. Which categorically proves my theory - doctors make you sicker.
