I was sitting here thinking all about this last night after my sister in law mentioned that she is now PG with her second child. All the children on this side of the family go to the same Pediatric assosication. How did that happen? My sisinlaw convinced myself and her brother's wife, who is now mom to a 3 week old baby girl, to choose them over the others we were looking at. And I just figured out why I let her talk me into them over the one I first choose.....AFTER HOUR OFFICES INSTEAD OF ER ROOMS!
Instead of going to an ER room and waiting god knows how many hours I can take my daughter to one of the specified after hour care offices and GET THE SAME TREATMENTS minus a few things for half the cost and wait time. It's a great thing when your child is sick on the weekends and you know that their regular office is closed......even if they have weekend hours they never extend past 12pm around us.
So that really was the number one reason to choose this pediatric over the first one I choose......and that got me wondering.......what was the number one thing that made you choose who you go to with your child?
Well gotta log off....our sick child appointment is in half an hour.....poor girls been throwing up and icky since Tuesday night on/off. Thought it was the bug going around the daycare but that would have disappeared within 48 hours the longest and that time limit expired last night.....sigh. Time to find out exactly what it is so I know how many sick days I have to use up and reschedule appointments to accomidate them......harsh I know but when you are given so many paid sick days you have to consider that into the equation because once they are gone you have to "pay" to take sick days in one way or another.
