Kindergarten Physical


This little guy just had his Kindergarten physical.  I hate Kindergarten physicals.  I am glad they test a lot of things on my kids to make sure they are healthy but when you get not so great news, it is no fun.  I like to remain blissfully ignorant of problems.

When my oldest started Kindergarten, I didn't know all that went into a physical and it was during that physical that we learned he had heart mummer (which turned out to be benign and he outgrew it) and that he major problems with his vision, which after patching briefly and now wearing glasses, he is fine.  Yes, I am glad we got the news early, when we could correct the problems but I still hated it.  

So, I dread the physical and don't sleep the night before.  Silly?  Yes.  Fortunately, for this little guy, he passed with flying colors and is even on the growth charts (we make very small people in my house and my kids finally make it on the growth charts around Kindergarten).  Five shots later, he is set for Kindergarten.

I agree. Ignorance is bliss.

I hate them too. Mostly because my kids always ask if they are going to get shots and I can't lie and then we have a whole ugly scene. Glad yours is overwith!

Those shots are the hard part!

We get to do that next week. Fun.

I only wish some of our latest issues had been picked up on at the kindergarten physical instead of having to wait for scary episode after scary episode and finally a diagnosis. But, yes, the shots are miserable.
