Hairdressers appts, doc appts, waxing appts, the lot, they come with me. Even to the bank when I need to see the manager - they bring their bag with snacks and toys and books, and are taught the art of patience.
These kids of mine are well rounded and adjust in any situation - they learn so much when we're out, they are interested in things, and ask questions.
I'd love to hear what questions they ask while you are getting a wax or at the Doc! tongue
What an education you are giving them! lol
No questions that can't be answered- I leave the 'waxing' for when DD is at school and DS plays out in the shop rather than in the beauty room - an advantage of a small town with people you know in the shop!
And as for the doc, he loves seeing them, and generally gives them a lolly and has a basket of toys & books. They are quite occupied!! They are quite interested in what the doc does - but I generally leave the 'test' appointments for when my Mum can look after them - she takes 1/2 hr off work - or I organise it in her lunch hr.
DH works ultra long hours, so relying on him for those few times I need time alone at an appt is impossible.
When you've got to work with it, you just do it - otherwise you would achieve nothing.
