Princess A hates going to the pediatrician… even if she isn’t sick, not getting shots, and just going for a well baby visit. She especially hates being weighed and having her head measured and cries a ton. I guess I wouldn’t like getting weighed by a complete stranger every 3 months either.

Anyway, for her 9 month check-up I decided to dress up to make myself feel better about her potential and more likely inevitable crying. I decided to dress very 80’s. This picture doesn’t do a good job of showing it but my jeans are white cheetah print! I wore my favorite headband to cover my unwashed hair and some sunglasses to hide my sympathy tears!Underneath the sweater I wore a Lady Gaga for Barney’s tank top. Above is what the back of the tank top looks like.I also wore a cameo ring that The Husband bought for me in Italy on our Honeymoon. Cameos are BIG right now. I saw a cute Dolce and Gabbana cameo ring for sale at for $4,000 and I was sad I couldn’t afford it but then remembered my loving husband had bought me a cuter one for less money 3 years ago… he is always ahead of fashion trends.Princess A did cry a lot at her check-up but at least I looked good while comforting her! I still felt bad for her though and ending up getting a snowflake cookie on the way home to comfort myself! I hope your pediatrician appointments go smoothly or that you find a fabulous ensemble to wear to them!

    This is what I wish I had done when taking mine to checl ups. I used to end up in a t shirt and some dowdy pants with joggers, messy hair (before I discorvered head scarfs) and looling like the living dead. You look gorgeous hon, loving the whole outfit! And kudos on the comfort food for you! I would always forget myself and not give mtlyself a little reward for jpb well done. Happy Mummy, Happy Baby.

      Very True… The Husband has to remind me to take care of myself. I love headscarves… they save my life!

    I always going to the first year appointments. I hated the shots and everything because my girls cried. Feel for you and loved the outfit.

      Amelia cries a ton and doesn’t like pacifiers so it’s hard to get her to stop crying 🙁

        My daughter still goes to pieces when she hears the word ‘needles’ and she turns 13 soon! Which reminds me she is due again for booster needles this year. Help!

        Mine didn’t like them either which made it harder to quiet them down, I started bringing suckers when they got old enough as a reward for being so good for mommy at the doctor and for getting a shot. I kissed them to make it better and than gave it to them.
