I am procrastinating today. I haven’t started packing or laundry.
But I would rather tell you about Landon’s 18 month appointment, not that it’s even the slightest bit interesting lol.
So I get there, and normally there are people sitting at the front desk. Not today. So I see a ticket machine [we've been going to this clinic for a year and I've never seen the number puller before], so I go ahead and grab a number (25) and sit down. I wait for about 10 minutes and they call 2 numbers. 23 & 24.
Landon is getting angry that I’m making him sit still and I’m getting angry that it’s now 5 minutes until my scheduled appointment.
Then, 2 families walk in the door and go up the the desk. The ladies help them…so I walk up there with my number and one of the nurses rudely say “Oh you have a number? Well you have to wait.” I asked when she was going to call my number and another nurse chimes in and says she already did. Maybe she did, maybe she didn’t. I didn’t hear it.
Another lady (not late for her appointment because he number 26 was never called) was refused service and asked to make a new appointment. Now, if 2 people tell you that their number wasn’t called that means their number wasn’t called.
I did not wake up and say “I want to be rude to the nurses in the pediatric clinic today.”
Anyways, I am a little worried. The doctor asked me if Landon is putting 2 words together, as in starting to form sentences. I said no. Then she wrote something on a piece of paper in his medical records.
I am tempted to get his medical records so I can see what she wrote.
Landon is very smart in regards to many things. He was walking at almost 10 months, he was able to use a fork at 12 months and there’s so much more.
But he doesn’t really say WORDS. He babbles like babies do. He says “mama” and “dada”. That’s really it. Everything else isn’t really pronounced…
I have worried, since day one, about being a good mom and teaching him everything he should know.
So that brings me to my question:
When do kids form sentences? Better yet, when did YOUR child form sentences?
