Trip to the city
Wish it was just a fun trip, but it was a visit to Vanderbilt Children's Hospital for Gemma. She has a "horseshoe kidney" and they just wanted to monitor the growth. Seems everything is fine and growing normally.
Gemma's had some unpleasant experiences with the medical profession, and decided that there was no way she was going to willingly lie down on the exam table. I had to pin her with hands and both forearms to get her down on her tummy. Of course, after a few minute she realized that ultrasounds are neither painful nor very frightening, and she relaxed, turned over when asked to do so, and watched the cartoons happily.
She was rewarded with a sticker. We opted for Disney Princesses, since they had no Viking Shield Maiden stickers.
Nothing like praying the rosary in the van after a long day to knock everyone out...well, almost everyone!
