We decided that I go alone with Norrah while the two kids stay at home with the half day ‘stay at home dad’! This is after confirmation from some mummies that I don’t have to do anymore checking (so I can handle Norrah myself).
We left early with crying Nikki. Fortunately we didn’t wait any longer (to soothe Nikki) as the queue at Klinik Kesihatan was already building up when I arrived there. We were number 9 in our area code! They only started the checkings at sharp 8am.
Seriously, I have no idea how the system works – the numbers from different area and timing were all jumping all around. It not only takes patience to wait but heart beating (like waiting for the lotto numbers to appear). And it is not once but thrice for this second round of jab- first being weighing, second to see nurse and jab and finally to see doctor. Seeing doctor is only this round, I guess! The seats are really hot seats; once standing, they are up for grab (no joke! I was sitting at the corner, just bend my body and lift my butt up to check on the ticking numbers – my seat gone! 🙄) Certainly the right decision to leave the two girls at home!
Anyway, the nurses and doctor are nice! This time they did the alcohol swab before injecting! Norrah cried a tiny bit! Yes, it is still free of charge (errr.. well, we paid taxes)!
I nursed Norrah in the car before we left to tahpau lunch for me and hubby. Then I dropped by at sundry shop to get the seaweed noodles which Noelle has been requesting for! I cooked it immediately with leftover soup when I returned and she ate 3 pieces of the noodles. Nikki also has it without fuss!
We will repeat the process in the next few months!
