Candiland, you're not alone. I'm paranoid too.

In the first year, I took my kids about once every three months. Once they turned one, they go in once a year, unless they are sick or injured.

When dd was born in the hospital, and we had to go in without paperwork because there was no one at my obgyn's office to send anything at 10 pm, and we were paperwork-less for 12 hours, it was a nightmare. (24 hour service obgyns are a myth, I tell you). They treated me like a crackhead prostitute, because I had nothing in writing.

I don't ever want to go through that again, so I feel better if we have some paper records somewhere. I know from experience, it's all about the paperwork.
