Change incredibly poopy diaper of wailing baby. Wash hands. Apply antibacterial ointment to the cut where she (almost) bit through her bottom lip yesterday while falling off a picnic table bench onto asphalt and hitting her head. Reflect on the incompetence of doctor at urgent care place where we took her first. Feel like a bad mother for allowing her to fall*, but good mother for insisting on talking her to the ER after urgent care place because I had such a bad feeling about said UC doctor from the second he walked in the door ("She got a bad bump to the head but I don't think she broke it." WTF kind of retarded thing is that to say?? Totally not in an attempt at humor?? and ps, she does not even have a goose egg so what do you even mean?) Reflect on competence of ER doc who gave her a thorough exam, including THE INSIDE OF HER MOUTH AND HER TEETH, STUPID URGENT CARE DOCTOR, YES! EVEN THOUGH SHE WAS CRYING, and assured us she does not need stitches. Feed baby and other kids breakfast. Decide to change her diaper quickly while she's standing in the kitchen because food got on it. Find it full of diarrhea. See that it somehow got all over my shirt. Change diaper and then my shirt. Think about taking her to the doctor yet again. Finally take first sip of coffee. Spill coffee all over the clean shirt I just put on.

What I have learned: urgent care places are great if you want someone who went to medical school in Grenada to prescribe a decongestant. Not so good if you have a child with an injury that might require plastic surgery, or competence.
