Scenes From a Day

Calling in to the pediatrician's office about the baby's fever of 102:

appointment nurse: and is he complaining of stiffness in his neck?
me: He's 11 months old... he doesn't act like its stiff.
AN: but is he complaining?
me: he's 11 months old, he's not that verbal yet.
AN: So he's not complaining of a stiff neck?
me: Ma'am. He's 11 months old. He can say DUCK. What the hell???
AN: So.... that's no?

Yeah I've had these conversations before. Including the one where I was arguing about a bill in Izzaks name when he was 18 mos and the guy told me it was going to ruin his credit? I think people would forgive him for not paying a bill he didn't owe when he was a baby.
Hope Jacob is feeling better.

Hysterical!

Maybe he's not saying duck at all... Maybe he's saying something that rhymes with duck and he's saying it because his neck is stiff.

I'm just saying!

Are you sure he was saying "Duck"? Maybe he was saying "Stuck" as in "My neck is stuck" as in "I feel like I have a stiff neck". Sheesh, what kind of mother are you!? :)

Oh my god. My husband and I just had a good laugh over this one. That nurse is lucky you didn't reach through the phone and give HER a stiff neck--with your fist. I hope the little one is feeling better.

LMAO - reminds me of when the nurse told me to keep my 6 week old on a liquid diet. I just smiled and nodded slowly.
