So what is a mom to do when she has appointments she needs to attend and two crazy kids in tow? Doctors appointments of all shapes and sizes, heck even a business meeting – with kids, can be ROUGH (sometimes all capitals rough). I rarely have a choice, it’s bring the kidlets or don’t go – and sometimes it’s “OMG stressful” sometimes it goes smoothly with no hiccups at all. Usually I stock up on snacks, bring books, quiet toys and of course the ever popular backup plan: my iphone and usually I plan appointments for when the bigger kiddo is at school. These tricks don’t always work in our favour. Like today for instance, no matter how many distractions and yummy items I pulled out of my bag we still got sucked into double tantrum town in the middle of a busy doctors office. Knowing that I will have to go back to this same appointment and dreading the same result, I’m asking and hoping maybe someone has a tip – what do you do when you have an appointment to attend but no sitter?
