I told him that it must be quite entertaining to listen to the random things that little kids say each day. He said it's one of the best things about the job. He said they'll sometimes say things that shock their parents. Things like, "My mom and dad like to wrestle and......" He's had to just cut them off right there, thinking that maybe what goes on at home should stay at home. LOL.
Poor Jadyn had to get 5 shots. The doctor asked me if I wanted her to get all 5 or if I'd want to come back another time for more. It's such a tough decision to say, "Yes, give my child 5 shots." You feel like such a mean mom. We decided to just do all 5 and get it over with. I hated putting her through that though.
What I do love is the new, quick retractable syringes. I'd never seen them before last fall when we got our flu shots. Those babies are in and out in a flash. I don't know that it makes it any less painful, but it's over and done quickly anyway.
Poor Jadyn, I felt so bad for her to be traumatized that way. She did get 4 really cool Bandaids, 3 stickers and then the gum I had promised her.
We were on our way to Target after the doctors appointment. Jadyn was still feeling sad. She really knows how to work me. She said, "Mom, I wouldn't be so sad, if we could go to the pet store." She's one smart cookie. So we went to the pet store for a while. That made things all better.
