Madcap Dash to the Pediatrician, Take 2

OK, this time Mom, why don't you play it frantic?
Wait no, let's try stoic and you can just allude to frantic. Maybe something like in the way you are chewing your lip or the fact that your hair has obviously not been brushed.
OK, OK, and you can be sick too. Maybe you've lost your voice. Yeah, and so when you are driving down the road, we can have the baby screaming and the toddler crying about her ear and asking you questions over and over again, but she won't be able to hear your answers because you have no voice! And she just keeps asking and asking.
And then we'll cut to the waiting room and the baby's in the stroller and he's fallen asleep, but this wild little kid comes in and starts goofing off and you can start throwing beseeching looks at the father as he signs in, but he'll be all oblivious and then the kid will wake the baby up. Yeah.
So then they take you back to the room and the toddler is crying now and the baby wants to nurse and you are just waiting and waiting and then as soon as you start to nurse, the toddler's going to say, "Mommy, I have to potty."
So finally, we'll have the doctor come in and he'll check her out and say, "Yep, that's a raging ear infection."
OK, action!

days like that you wish you knew someone who had a degree and an ear thingy to go with it to just look in her ear and say "Yep. get some antibiotics"
