My poor bubby had to get his four year shots today. There wasn't just one, or two, or even three. There were FOUR and yep, one at a time. Nate and I did tell him that we were going to the doctor's today and that he was going to get shots and that it would hurt but only for a second, but unfortunately I don't think anything can prepare a four year old for stinking shots. I held Kaden during the shots, but Nate said that he gave the nurse who was giving the shots a look that said he will never like her again. Afterwards nothing made him happy except leaving and going home. Even then when we got home I put in his favorite cartoons and he sat in the chair for about an hour and a half without much reaction to his cartoons, which normally would cause a ton of laughter and screeching throughout them. He was not a happy camper. Once he got over being upset he then was very willing to show everyone his "ouchies."
The nurse told us "the good news" that he should not need another shot until he is 11unless things change. Unfortunately for Kaden he still gets the flu shot every year and actually this weekend or week sometime I am suppose to take him back to get blood drawn. I hate being poked let alone taking my baby to get poked. Anyone else want to take him for me ; ).
Off subject: I just wanted to mention how much I HATE potty training. Things are starting to go downhill. Any suggestions??? I don't think he realizes when he needs to go, he does know afterwards though.
