Alex is definitely growing up. We went in last night for their regular flu shots. On the way, I decided that I should tell Alex rather than springing it on him in the waiting room.
Mama: “Alex, remember how the Berenstain Bears had to go to the doctor for a checkup?”
Mama: “And they had to get a shot to help keep them from getting sick?”
Mama: “Well, you and Beth need to get a shot today to help keep you from getting sick.”
We did Alex’s first so Beth’s crying wouldn’t scare him. He was a big boy, didn’t squirm (although I saw him tense up), and he didn’t cry at all! I was amazed. I expected at least a few seconds of crying. Afterwards he picked out a Cars sticker for himself and a My Little Pony sticker for Beth.
Sure hope Friday goes this well. They’re scheduled for their H1N1 flu shot.
