You were there the first time I brought my kids in to the doctor. You were kind and supportive of me. Thank you for that.
You've been there at so many of the appointments we've had since my kids came in to Care. You've watched them grow and blossom. You have seen them become less fearful. You've watched them learn English. I love the way you light up when they come in to the room. You are so nice to my kids.
However Nurse Lady -- you crossed a line today! In the future, do NOT tease my 3yo and tell him that you want him to come home with you!!! Do not tell him how cute he is and that you just want to keep him. Do not ask his sister if it's OK if her brother comes home with you!
What were you thinking?!
Did you forget how these children came to live with me?!
Your comments were just plain cruel!
I hope you actually heard me when I asked you to not play with my child that way. I was so angry that when you asked me what I said I didn't have the ability to repeat myself. Next time I won't be so shy. I will make sure you understand how incredibly inappropriate your comments were!!!
Dear Nurse Lady, don't cross me again. I'll go Mamma Bear all over you and it won't be pretty. Next time think a little before you tease any child about something like that. Not every kid you come in to contact every day has a stable home life and can see past what you're saying to know that you are teasing. It's NOT OK. And as a nurse, you should know better!
There had better not be a next time.
