I haven't posted a mommy moment in a long time, today seems like a good day for it!
Both of my children have appointments in the morning, well checks. That is also code for "shots." Ugh. My son, who when asked to draw a picture to represent each season in first grade drew a syringe for fall. He literally associates a flu shot with fall, it amazes me how much he gets wrapped up in the whole idea. The issue is he tends to think about the actual act, what will happen, how his body will respond where the medicine will go, all the details. My daughter, she is a bit more simplistic in her fear, "it hurts!"
We have already rehearsed what/how it will all go. We have pretended to give a shot, he yells "pickles," and it is all over (his new word of choice when frustrated).
I am just amazed at how I somehow got out of the whole ordeal, no school for dad tomorrow so he is on parent duty and the kids are getting to school late. I am definitely feeling the need for this long weekend and I think my kids and husband will too after tomorrow! PICKLES :)
I almost skipped the slice today, thanks to Elsie I was inspired to get some words down. Thanks to all of you who read, comment and share. I love the opportunity to read your words too.
