I’ve checked one big thing of my to-do list. I found a pediatrician for our baby. Please don’t think I’m a terrible mother when you hear my list of qualifications:
I guess you can say I can’t really afford to be picky like I’d be in the States. I’m happy with a nice lady who smiles at me and speaks enough English to have a conversation. I guess we’ll duke out the rest later!
In other news, Hungary has this amazing thing called “Let’s not put all of our sick kids in a room together!” Yes, the pediatricians do house calls if your baby is ill or a newborn! That deserves 2 exclamation points!! This is huge for me. I was imagining bundling up my three day old baby to walk through a blizzard, uphill (of course), dodging stray dogs and slippery patches of ice, all to get to a pediatrician. My imagination was not far from this photo.
Not necessary for me to adopt the eskimo lifestyle! Ah… What a beautiful thing.
