After looking into the flu shots this year, I decided it would be best if we all skipped the mist and did the shot. First of all the shot is not a live virus, and I just feel like it's a better choice. To each their own! Nevertheless, much 'shot' talk has been taking place in our house. Tatum was pretty mad about not getting that nose misty stuff, so we'll see how she reacts today when it's game time. Dalton had almost talked himself into everything being okay today. We showed up at his preschool and though he was not his usual happy self, he wasn't crying. We got checked in and walked into the room where the nurses were giving the shots. Two kids in there....screaming.....crap. He looks up at me, tears filling his eyes and he says:
"I USUALLY GO WITH THE FLOW.....BUT THIS IS CRAZY!!!!"
Luckily, I am wizard in the department of distraction. I say, "DALTON, tell them about your halloween costume..I bet NO ONE here would believe how SCARY it is!"
D: "Well....sniff sniff....it...sniff is pretty scary...it's actually freaky" (side note...actually is one of his favorite words to date).
Smart assistant nurse brings bag of candy over while shot nurse gets ready to aim.
Aim. Fire. Done.
Me: GREATTT JOB!
Dalton: "I WOULDN'T say that DIDN't hurt mommy."
Alas, Dalton loves him some chocolate and the mini twix seemed to comfort the wounds so to speak.
I am much more worried about my drama diva getting her shot today. I am sure I will have more to write about that later.
