“And, no more ‘nap when he naps’, OK?” That’s what Levi’s doctor said during his 3 year check up. He also gave the advice of “no processed” food, so it is evident this is his catch-all advice and not specific to one situation over another. This post, for lack of a more clever thesis, is about advice.
I chuckled when his doctor said that. He doesn’t remember that I have Grave’s Disease, and he certainly didn’t know that my thyroid levels were coming down. I think I muttered (maybe just in my head), “We’ll see,” with a chuckle. Yes, I will take a nap thank you, when I am tired. Sometimes, dear doctor I operate on five hours of sleep, and napping while my dear Levi-bug naps, is necessary for everyone’s sanity.
The whole processed food thing was really entertaining. I blinked and looked at him, “Like what?” “We’re suggesting parents limit things like fruit roll ups (light goes off, ‘oh duh’) granola bars, etc.” I looked at him and said, “If I want a granola bar, I’ll make one myself.” He chuckled, “I don’t need to know how.”
