“I never thought I would say this, but I have found a great benefit to having a child. I *love* going to the pediatrician's office. I never thought I would ever say this; to me the pediatrician's office was a house of dread with cold stethoscopes and lots & lots of needles. But the pediatrician's office changes into something incredibly new with a baby. 1) It's the place where you get this validation that no, you're not killing the child, plus the pediatrician has this magic bag with which anything that *could* be wrong with the child he can fix within 48 hours. He goes to bat for you, and then there's the lobby, a general schmorgasboard of other children that you can look at and go, "ohhh."
