"So, are you a Rookie Mom?" — The Bump
Parenting after 35

"So, are you a Rookie Mom?"

This is what the after hours pedi asked me last night.  I got 2 phone calls at work that Jackson was crying non stop, but by the time I got there his regular pedi was closed, so we went to the after hours place.  I was afraid he had an ear infection, bc he has had a slight cough and drippy nose, but no fever.  Two hours later, the dr finds nothing wrong with him, and asks me if I am rookie. Tongue Tied  Whatever, at least J is ok.  But seriously, a person can forget a lot in 9 years!

  • First: I'm glad that nothing is wrong with him.

    Second: Uh... you did the right thing by bringing him in.  Rookie or not, you have to err on the side of caution.

  • who the hell says that to someone? you did the right thing by taking him in and don't let them shame you into thinking anything else. Erring on the side of caution with your children is always the best course of action as far as i'm concerned.

    ditto this!  I'll always remember that one time when we had a "situation" after LO's circumcision (and we had to rush to the doc) when my DH said to me "I'm glad you trusted your mommy instincts." ... ever since then, I always have.

  • Maybe he said it in a joking way and was flirting with you? That's my story and I am stickin' to it!

    Word.  What the heck is up with that pedi?

  • Hey, its your time and your co-pay and more importantly, YOUR BABY. If you think he should be seen, then take him in. Always better than the "if you had just brought him in, we could have treated/prevented this......."

    Wow - soooooome bed side manner... I hope you get a random survey to fill out.
