I've been out of action all day today. I had to take my Little Guy for his 18 month well-child checkup. I'm happy to report that he's as healthy as a horse, a bit taller than the Japanese children but within the normal range. His teeth were in perfect condition, unlike some of the other children whose mothers had to have a tutorial on the correct procedure for brushing. The whole checkup was done cattle-call style with about 50 other children. It took two hours altogether so it was another exhausting afternoon. I'm just glad he's thriving.
