Kindergarten Screenings?

We took The Short Chic in for her 4 year old check up.

She is nearly 4 1/2 years old! I am that Mom, who never gets the appointments scheduled in a timely manner.

She is in the 75th percentile for height. The 50th percentile for weight. If she would gain 5 more pounds we could graduate to a booster seat.

The crazy thing about the appointment is she is not eligible for her 5 year check up till August next year. After Kindergarten round up. So they did it today!


I was so unprepared. I need time to process these things.

 My baby in Kindergarten? In one year! Holy smokes!

Not having time to prepare worked for me today. We had to quickly get a hearing test (which she passed). A vision test. (This one seems a little concerning to me. She got the 20/20 letters but she did not do so hot on the use of one eye to get the smaller letters. She either had stage freight and forgot her letters or she really can't see them. Stay tuned. The nurse was so nice. She justified it by saying, "We never have 4 year olds take these test!")

We also had to get 3 shots immunizations. (That is code in the doctors office. The Doctor was so careful to say immunizations so The Short Chic would not freak out over the word shot! Then she left the room, her nurse walked right in and said, "So, you are getting 3 shots!) She was a little freaked but she did not cry a bit.

Her doctor's office gave her a tiara for being such a trooper! They also gave her 3 stickers, one for each poke. I think she might have liked the stickers more than the tiara! However, we still have the tiara and the stickers are long gone.

I have one year to enjoy my preschooler. I better make the best of it!

  1. What a sweetie!! I remember when my 'baby' was scheduled for her Kindergarten screening. True to her adult self, she had a freak out: "What if I don't pass?" LOL@
