Last Saturday, we sat Curly down and explained that she would be going to the doctor’s visit with Little Man. We said they might be doing some testing, but we weren’t really sure, and she reacted pretty much like we expected.
All weekend she expressed her fears, cried, asked questions, and we tried to be as honest with her as we could be. We also had to remind her that whatever happened – we were going to be right there with her. And she should NOT tell her classmates anything about the doctor’s exam…
So over the weekend, she also drank lots of water and ate lots of prunes to keep things moving in the right direction.
Her Mamaw noticed that she was thinning down – she gets V.E.R.Y. bloated at times and we know when she needs more fiber in her diet. So we talked about how the prunes and water helped her tummy go down.
As sweetly and innocently (?) as she could, she looked at me and said,
Mommy – you need to drink more water and eat more prunes too!!!
