Kids Have a Lot of Doctors Appointments

This morning my wife and I woke up and I realized kids have a ton of doctors appointments. Today was our daughters 18 month check up.

Check ups always bring a certain amount of anxiety with them. There is always that feeling of “have we been doing everything right?”, “Are we reading the right parenting books?”, and “is she eating enough?”. Well today was one of those great checkups where the doctor told us we were doing everything right for the most part.

We are raising our daughter as a vegetarian. This has been some drama about this with both my parents and with my wife’s parents. It is an even bigger problem for them because our daughter is on the small side. Today the doctor said that despite our daughter being small we are doing great on her diet, she would however add in some more greens to her diet. As every father knows adding more greens to an 18 month olds diet can be rather challenging. We will see how it goes.

The best thing about this doctors visit is that we don’t have another appoint for 6 months.
