Embarrassing Doctor’s Visit


– Today I’m doing a interview. – Say, “Hip hip hooray!” (giggles) Come on. Hip hip, hooray! Hold on, can we all just stop and … I’m looking at these daisies and then I’m looking at (laughing) – Your daisy? (laughing) – Alright, you don’t seem nervous. Are you nervous for interviews? You never get nervous in front of people. – Wait, why do you need to scan the feet if you want to see the growth plates? (jazz music) – [Mom] You ready for today? I laid out all of your pretty clothes, so that you would know
exactly what to wear. You sweet pea. I don’t know if I have any, I can look. – Yeah, ’cause dad gave me one yesterday. – Russell just told me that he has, how many pages left? – Five. – Five pages left in Harry Potter. He’s read Harry Potter! Russell, that’s a big deal! Say, “Hip hip, hooray!” (laughs)
Come on. Hip hip, hooray! – (laughing) Hip hooray. – There you go. – What’s Davenport? Because on the counter
it says Abby, Davenport. – [Shari] Can I tell her? – [Mom] Hold on, can we
all just stop and … I’m looking at these daisies
and then I’m looking at … (laughing) – Your daisy? (laughing) – [Shari] Dad bought
himself those tank tops. – [Mom] You wanna tell
her? I’ve kept it quiet. – So, you’re going to go
to the doctor’s today. And they’re going to
take X-rays of your feet. And they’re gonna look
at your growth plates. – Oh. – And they’re gonna see if they’re closed. And if they’re closed, that
means you’re done growing, which means you’ll be
shorter than me forever. (laughing) – I hesitate talking because
I have not brushed my teeth. And the last time I did a sponsor video, I had milk on my chin the whole time. I’m like, Oh my gosh, of course, of course I did.
– Shari, are yours closed? So I’m like, kind of hypersensitive about what you’re seeing on camera. When Shari was little, I had taken her into the doctor, and the doctor had shown, he’s like, after you start your cycle, after girls start cycling, they have, did he say two years? – That’s what I’ve heard and that’s what all my teachers have
said who teach biology. That’s what … – Now I thought I
remember hearing one year. – One or two. – I thought it was one, so, and Shari never did end up growing. – I was done before. I was done a year before. (giggling) – She had stopped growing
before she started cycling. I’m concerned about
Abby because it’s been, count up the months,
– almost a year – was it September? No it was August, the end of August. September, October, November, December, – September is my birthday. January, February, March, April. – It’s been eight months
since she started cycling and – [Shari] She hasn’t grown. – She hasn’t grown since then, so I’m worried if her growth pattern is the same as Shari’s that means Abby’s done growing which, there are short people in this world but you’re how tall? You’re four foot – [Shari] Like ten something. – Eight? – [Shari] No, she’s not
three inches shorter than me. – Nine? Go stand by Shari. – [Dad] I can have two cars — – Turn back to back. – [Dad] That have handicapped plates. – How much taller am I then her? – [Dad] About an inch. Not an inch. – You’re like an inch taller, that’s about it.
– She’s about 4’10” So maybe you are done growing. – I am almost five foot
exactly, so she’s — – When Shari went and got her foot looked at at the podiatrist,
– Podiatrist. – he took an X-ray, and he looked at her growth plates and he said they are completely closed. There is absolutely zero percent chance she’s gonna grow anymore. Everyone’s like, she’ll keep growing and I’m like nope, there is no chance she’s gonna grow anymore. So we’re going to do
the same thing for Abby. And I was worried that
you were going to be upset because when I told Shari, and talked to you when you were little and we took you to the doctor, you were really upset when we talked about anything
like taking hormones– – And I wish I had now
because mom was like, hey, we can take hormones
that can help you grow. I was like why can’t you
accept me for who I am? And now looking back I’m
like, why was I like that? (giggling) – Yeah you were. I’m like, I do accept you for who you are but if you wanna be taller you gotta take these.
– I wish I was taller.– – So, are you the same? Are you going to be
like, hard to deal with? – I don’t know.
– I don’t know. – If it’s already closed,
there is nothing we can do, but, if they’re open, you
probably can take hormones.– – Okay now this is where you and I have to make a decision as the parents. If– – Supplements, protein
powder, eggs, whole wheat, that’s what she needs. Boom! Oh, we’re talking about her growing. (giggling) Sorry. – I feel like I’m speaking to … who’s the character who
says, “eat your spinach!” – Nobody. Nobody says that. – Popeye. Popeye. – He doesn’t say eat your spinach. (laughing) – If the doctor says we’ll
take hormone blockers, – When you guys go to … – It makes me nervous. If you take a hormone blocker,
– Mama. Mama. – you can continue to grow but if it, I don’t want to run the risk
of like blocking her hormones and having her mess with
her body and then like, if years down the road
she can’t have kids, I’d always question was it
because we did that to her? I don’t want to mess with her
reproductive system either. – Well lets, let the doctor tells us what the risks are and we go from there. – Okay. – Maybe it would help with her acne too. (lively guitar music.) – This could possibly
be the most boring clip ever vlogged. (laughing) Ever. (laughing) – Today I’m doing a interview. – All right. You don’t seem nervous. Are you nervous for interviews? You never get nervous in front of people. How do you, Eve, keep
yourself from getting nervous around people? What’s your secret? – It’s because I’m — – Turn it around so they can see you talk. – Because they feel.
It’s just, they’re nice. (upbeat music) Well. That was a hard time. (upbeat music) – [Mom] So the kindergarteners get their very own lunch room. (upbeat music) You’re going to be able to have a snack before you actually have lunch. That’s nice. And another snack as well. Okay, well Eve’s interview
is done and I have to say that was a lot of content
for them to go home and like giggle over. She was jumping up and down, like… That didn’t come out right.
She was like dancing around and like wiggly, and I’m
like, she just has the wiggles all the time. She’s
like very understanding. She’s like, oh, the kindergarten teachers here are great. – And then I frowned up. – She’s getting tired. I
really, (sigh), anxious about the kindergarten year
’cause she get really tired and really hungry, and kinda cranky, and so for it to be all day it’s going to be a real challenge for Eve. (running obscures dialogue) – Okay. Let’s head out to the car. – [Russell] Eve, you can’t be there. (piano music) – Mom. (piano music) – [Russell] Eve, put on your shoes. – [Mom] Eve. It’s always
kinda gross to not wear shoes in a doctors office. And
you should have worn socks. – Wait. Why do you need to scan the feet if you wanna see the growth plates? – [Mom] You have growth
plates in several places, but in your feet you for
sure have growth plates. – Guess what? A girl, she broke her leg right by a growth plate, and if she put any weight on it the it’ll just go (whoosh) and
crush it. The growth plate. – [Mom] So then she
wouldn’t grow any more. – She wouldn’t grow that place. – [Mom] Oh, in that place.
Oh. Where did you learn that. – My teacher told us. – [Mom] Yeah. – I think Russell’s going to
be a doctor when he grows up. He’s really good with the body. – [Mom] You gonna be a doctor Russell? You used to talk about being
a doctor when you were little. Did you know that? But you could also be lots of things. What do you want to be when you grow up? – I don’t feel like them any more. – [Mom] What do you feel like? – I don’t know. – [Mom] You wanna be a Grandpa, huh! Last time I asked him what he
wanted to be when he grew up he said, I wanna be a Grandpa. (laughing) – That was when I was
like four. I’m seven now. (soft piano music) – [Mom] You gonna pass on the sucker? – I’ve had enough brownie for a lifetime. (laughing) – I really don’t want to have one. – [Mom] Once you hit 99
pounds you don’t need any suckers any more? You’re
too old? You’re too big? – It’s just I love a brownie instead. (laughing) – Bye. Thank you. (piano music) Alright, so the doctor
gave us a growth chart. I did not realize that we had
taken Abby in a year ago for, it must have been for,
I don’t know, something, and she has grown
– an inch. – One inch. Can you see that? Can you see that little line right there, that starts here and goes up? That means she grew an inch. And he said that she would probably grow not quite another inch,
but a little bit of growth over the next six months to a year. But, she probably won’t
be any taller than Shari, and this is her weight growth, you can see right here
in the last two years, she’s grown in weight,
and he said that that’s right where she wants to be is the weight she’s at
right now for her height. Maybe there’s room to
gain a couple of pounds, but not a toll ton, but that’s
a good weight to stay at. Abby, how do you feel about that? – Good. Means I’m in good shape. Yeah. – Are you guys happy with your height? Are you guys wishing
that you had more height? Are you wishing you were shorter? All right guys. Enough
talk about being too short, too tall because that’s not even a thing. You are just right where you are. Kay. You’re not too much of
anything. You are just you. But, my tank is too empty, so, I’m gonna go get some gas in the car. You guys up for going to the gas station? – No. – Well tough, ’cause
we’re going. Bye guys. (jazzy piano music)
