You never know what you'll see there.
First thing this morning we took Alan in to get blood drawn. This particular location is a rather large building, with kids of all types running around. I feel I can sympathize with most parents who bring their kids there. It's just something we do.
But I have to admit I did do a double-take today when I saw a boy, about three years old, waiting in line with his mother and happily playing with one of these:
On a stick.
If you don't recognize that object, let me put it in its regular environment for you:
My first thought upon seeing afore-mentioned little boy entertaining himself with above-pictured item was "ew."
But then I had to admit that even if it was ... umm..... previously used, it technically comes in contact with only clean water. And the kid was clearly entertained and well-behaved.
And then I just had to laugh and admit that as parents we sometimes just have to do what we have to do.
You go mom of the little toilet-float playing boy. You go.
