At Skye’s check-up this morning:
DOCTOR: I see she has the sniffles.
ME: Yeah. Nothing new there.
DOCTOR: Well, we should probably hold off on giving her any shots, just in case she does become sick because shots can make it worse —
ME: Good idea. My husband is away for the week and I do NOT have the energy to take care of a super-sick baby all by myself.
DOCTOR: [A PAUSE, THEN:] PLUS it’s just the best thing to do for Skylar’s health.
ME: Right. That’s what I meant. I am most concerned about my daughter‘s welfare. Not mine. Of course. Ha, ha! *Ahem*
