Does EVERYTHING have to be equal...

So last week I took the girls to the Dr.'s for their 6 year old Well Child visit...

did all the basics and they were deemed fit and ok for 6 year olds - allbeit a little short (25%)

so they needed to get blood and urine...

Blood - not a problem - a little prink and squeeze and that is done...

Urine on the other hand involves me taking part and playing "Catch the stream"

So everything went OK (or so I thought) and off we went...

At the beginning of the week I got a call from the Dr. office...can we come back in because something went wrong with the Urine samples...

JOY

So on Tuesday I pick up the girls early and off we go...

Once again I am on my knees in a bathroom holding a plastic cup up to my daughters Va-jay-jay and telling them "Please don't arch you aren't a water fountain"...and I catch the stream...

PWG went first and TW followed...

Everything went OK until....

They looked at the little plastic vials...and then it began

TW: PWG has more pee than me
ME: It doesn't make a difference
TW: But it is not equal - Can I pee more so it is equal
ME: NO!
TW: Please - it is not fair that PWG has more pee than me {cue big fat tears rolling down face}

all the while PWG is dancing around the bathroom singing "I have more pee...I have more pee"

HONESTLY...SERIOUSLY...

having equal ice cream in their bowls is one thing...but arguing and getting upset because your sister has more pee in her cup than you...

To top the day off Third Child managed to disloacte his shoulder later that night...so I got to spend a few hours in the ER...thank goodness our neighbor was home and could run over to stay with the girls...

Ooooohhhh yes! We have that all the time, not pee but everything has to be the same equal or there is fighting. Give me a break they are 13, 11 and 5, does it really matter to the older two who is first or if they have more? Blah!
