Ill be the nice mommy..
Okay..no didnt work.
Still be nice mommy but will call a few more people..
Waits a oouple of hours. Surely someone will check their voicemail and understand how important this is for my child.
Phone rings... Ruuuuun through the house. A friend on the other line.
Poor friend has to hear the story of your frustration with dr's offices. (sorry andrea) : )
Calls some more...
Leaves more voicemails..
First voicemail starts...
"I understand your busy...but...."
Second voicemail starts
"I need you to call as soon as possible please."
Third voicemail...Okay actually I get her paged at the hospital. STILL NOTHING.
By the end of today the last phone calls goes something like this.
"Hey. Listen. This is what he needs. This is when he needs it and I want it ordered now."
Does anyone else feel torn about being the nice lady that everyone likes at dr's offices and places or the lady whose a jerk but gets what she needs when she needs it?
There's got to be some kind of balance, but man am I having a hard time finding it!!!
I wanted to write about this especially in light of everything that is going on with poor Nicole and Annabelle. (check her blog if you are clueless to what im refering to) Its so hard to be your child's advocate. To be their voice. To keep a level head but also to kind of have a hard head.
We know what our children need. We know what we need. We sometimes just have to convince everyone else we know!!
You women are doing such a wonderful job. And a shout out to you Nicole!! You are doing great mama!! Keep it up!!
