TV or TB Test

Caitlyn needed to have a TB test done in order to start PreK in September. This irritates me as she had one done last August in order to start at her former preschool and the new school will not accept those results as they will be over a year old. Mind you, the pediatrician is about a 57 minute drive from my house. You may be asking why I don't have a pediatrician that is closer...well I believe I posted about the nutjob of a doctor that I ended up with the last time I tried to switch, so I am sticking with what works and dealing with the trek at the moment.

So as Caitlyn does NOT like surprises, I have been prepping her about going to the doc for this TB test for about 2 days. Finally, the night before the test, she asks me if she needs to get a shot. This is when I break it to her that the TB test is actually a shot. And then I wait for the wailing to ensue. However, it does not. Caitlyn very calmly says to me...

"Mommy, why do I need a TV test? I know how to watch TV."

Needless to say, all that prepping that I did, yeah that was thrown right out the window as she obviously had no clue whatsoever about what I was speaking of for the last 2 days.
