SHOTS!!!



Jarom had to get some booster shots for school and Beka needed a physical and shots too. Not having insurance prior to full time military wasn't a good idea. So, yesterday Jarom had his appointment and instead of just 1 shot, he got 5!!! He wasn't happy with me in the least. I guess he got his revenge when he screamed bloody murder in my ear 5 times while I was hugging him to keep from moving. YIPEE!!! The poor kid. I totally forgot to give him any tylenol and so we were running til a little after 8 last night. He could hardly walk and the poor kid just cried. I felt horrible. It's a good thing they forgive so readily. Beka had her turn today but she only had to get 1 shot. She cried and cried but felt much better after daddy took her to lunch. The kids pediatrician is a DLI where James goes to school so we went up to see him since it was lunchtime. She told him over and over how much it hurt. Before we got him, however, she kept telling me how much it hurt and that daddy could make it better, daddy would make it stop hurting. It's a darn good thing we were able to find daddy today! Sariah is next, but not until the end of September. YIPEE!!!

Shots are the pits. It never gets easier, they are the pits. So sorry Jarom. You deserve a gold medal for getting 5 shots all on the same day. I think that must be a record in your age category. It is just not fair for Beka to have to have any shots at all. Ballerina princess's should be exempt. Give them an extra kiss for me.

Oh, I HATE SHOTS!!!! I still cry. I had to get my finger pricked just this last doc appt and I cried. I'm such a baby. So, give the kids hugs and kisses from me and tell them I know their pain! I love that pic of becka by the way. What a cutie! :)

No fun! They deserve ice cream cones and pillows on the couch watching a movie. That's what we do when we get kiss or get owies!
