Putting on the glitz

I received the following email this morning and thought I'd share it with you ...

I was due for an appointment with the gynaecologist later in the week.
Early one morning, I received a call from the doctor's office to tell me that I had been rescheduled for that morning at 9:30 am.

I had only just packed everyone off to work and school, and it was already around 8:45 am.
The trip to his office took about 35 minutes, so I didn't have any time to spare.

As most women do, I like to take a little extra effort over hygiene when making such visits, but this time I wasn't going to be able to make the full effort.
So, I rushed upstairs, threw off my pajamas, wet the washcloth that was sitting next to the sink, and gave myself a quick wash in that area to make sure I was at least presentable.
I threw the washcloth in the clothes basket, donned some clothes, hopped in the
car and raced to my appointment.

I was in the waiting room for only a few minutes when I was called in.
Knowing the procedure, as I'm sure you do, I hopped up on the table, looked over at the other side of the room and pretended that I was in Paris or some other place a million miles away.
I was a little surprised when the doctor said,
"My,we have made an extra effort this
morning, haven't we?"

I didn't respond.
After the appointment, I heaved a sigh of relief and went home.
The rest of the day was normal.
Some shopping,cleaning, cooking.

After school my 6 year old daughter called out from the bathroom,
"Mommy,where's my washcloth?"
I told her to get another one from the cupboard.
She replied,
"No, I need the one that was here by the sink, it had
all my glitter and sparkles saved inside it."

NEVER going back to that doctor ever!!

A while ago, in our children's centre, I had to change a little girl who had wet her pants. It was a tricky business that unusually took me nearly half an hour.
When her mum picked her up I took her to one side and explained the problem. 'Janie said that she had no knickers in her drawer this morning.' I said 'I think she was very clever to use Barbie stickers to cover her girly bits'.
I could hardly finish telling the story because I was wetting my own knickers!

I absolutely wailed with laughter. The husband came rushing from the other side of the house because he thought there was something wrong! What a fabulous story.
