Hey everyone, I hope your doing well. This morning I called to make Josiah's appointment to get the helmet. The woman on the phone asked for Josiah's birthday and I gave her Julian's birthday on accident so she couldn't find him in the system. Both of my youngest boys were born in February a year apart. Julian was born on February 1st and Josiah was born February 10th. I felt like such an idiot! Lol. I told her I'm sorry, I have another son who was also born in February and I got them switched. She must have thought I was so stupid. Oh well, it happens... The soonest they could get him in is November 17th! Really stinks because the younger they have it, the easier it will be to get him used to it but there's nothing I can do. Hopefully there will be a cancellation so he can get in a bit earlier. We'll see. Have you ever spaced when giving a birthdate before?

That is outrageous that you have to wait 2 and a half months to get the helmet! Time is of the essence with that kind of stuff. That is a load of crap. I would be soooo pissed!

@NJChicaa I agree, that's the way it is when you have Medicaid. Your the bottom of the totem pole and don't matter much. I have been through it for years with all of us at different times...

@LovingMyBabies Total Bull$hit. I'd be lighting a fire under their a$$ for an earlier appointment.

@NJChicaa I plan on calling plenty to see if someone cancelled before his appointment to get him in sooner.

One year, my mother completely forgot about my little sister's birthday. A few days later, our next door neighbor asked Mom how my sister's birthday turned out.

@LovingMyBabies Luckily, Sis was so little, she did not know it was her birthday. I think she was 4 years old. We had a belated birthday for her the next day.

@KnehKnah That's true, names is a common one to mess up on.

Yes I have. I would have to say " hey lady I got so many children I dont remember my birthday!" and laughed like a mad woman No I bet she just thought as I did that happens, especially when you have two in the same month. Now my mom had 5 children. 2 born in January , 2 born in March, 1 = me born in July and both parents born in November.... I feel lonely! LOL.

@andriaperry Lol, yeah with 5 kids it's hard sometimes! My family is the same way! 2 born in February, Me and my oldest born in November, my husband and oldest son both born in October, and then my youngest daughter was born in January so she's the lonely one in our family.

Really late in the year too. You are right maybe a cancellation and you get in earlier? Something like that should be placed first.
