There's a reason I didn't go to school to become a nurse!


Went to the dentist to find out what was causing my son's tooth pain.

Found out nothing is causing his tooth pain.

Total cost: $50

Went to the pediatrician to find out what is causing his tooth pain and possibly get an antibiotic for a sinus infection (which could be causing the tooth pain.)

Found out the doctor has no idea what is causing the tooth pain, but he does have a sinus infection.

Total cost: $35

Went to the pharmacy to get antibiotics and pain medication.

Total cost: $14 (not as bad as I thought, at least)

Put drugged up kid to bed last night complaining of a major tummy ache. Found out tummy aches are a side effect of both medications.


Kid will be staying home from school again today.

I'm not cut out for the sick bed! I wanted to be an interior designer or an opera singer- neither of which have time for sick people!!!! I never in my wildest dreams wanted to be a nurse. I guess I didn't realize that the role of "Mom" IS being a nurse!

To me, there is nothing worse than mothering a sick child! I'm just not cut out for it either.
