Preserving Grandchildren

September 11, 2007

I just had to share this with everybody! My son had to get an x-ray today of his lungs, docs are looking for Asthma like things…Anyways, I’m in the X-ray room with Kota, I’m standing safely behind the half wall that protects me from impending doom, watching the tech get him situated. I notice on the wall behind him a few objects hanging in order of size. They were the shape of tear drops going from small (about the size of a grapefruit) to large (…larger than a grapefruit?) with a flexible band around the top. Miss Tech reaches for one, the small one…he’s only 10, and proceeds to wrap it around my sons waist. Kota looks very, very perplexed and concerned at this point. He glances down at this hanging object in front of him and ask, “What is this for?” At which Miss Techy replies, without delay, “It’s to protect your future children.” Awkward!!!

    Was it awkward for you or for him?

    Parents are generally much more sensitive about this stuff than the kids themselves are. They tend to take things more in stride while we view them as “our little babies” still.

    Daniel, it was funny! And I just remembered when I saw your pic up there that I forgot to email you about the book – sorry. I’ll do that today πŸ™‚

    Hov, No, awkward for him…It was hysterical to me! I saw it coming too so I was anticipating it and watching for his reaction. I was so bummed that I couldn’t have my cell phone to catch his expression in a pic!

    Krislinatin, I know! I had never seen one of those protective shields before – but of course I’m a women! She used the small one cuz he’s just wee one πŸ˜‰ and I assume they use the larger ones for grown wee ones!

    Hey Gretch!!! How are you? I’ll stop by later!

    James, thanks for stopping by too! I really like your blog… a lot. I have a confession – I’ve been lurking (eeeks) for a couple of weeks. Just wanted to get a feel for it…love it!

    Poor child. Between camping and doctors he may be scared for life. Seriously, he sounds like a great young man. How did his test turn out??

    I finally updated my blog.
