Why’s that lady looking at your bottom?

By  | 

My babysitter cancelled at the last minute – just as I needed to walk out the door for my six-week postpartum checkup with the Ob/Gyn. You know – the one where they take a peek at everything?

So I did the only thing I could do. I loaded the kids into the minivan, tossed some suckers into my purse and headed to the doctor’s office.
When my name was called, I rushed them into the exam room. Simon slept in his stroller, and I unwrapped suckers for Miles and Alice. I got into the blue gown, and we sang songs and played Simon Says until the doctor came in. I gave myself a pat on the back for handling everything so well.

I put my legs in the stirrups, my doctor began my exam, and I tried to entertain Miles and Alice while I laid on my back. Things were going well.

Until I looked between my legs and saw Miles peeking over the doctor’s shoulder. Sucking on his sucker.

“Mama,” he said. “Why is that lady looking at your bottom?”

    I have been laughing so hard while reading your posts! Thanks for the comic relief. I’m a mother of 2 toddlers (17 months apart) myself. My sister is going to be a mom for the first time and I’ll be telling her to check out some of your posts. 🙂
