Today was Mason’s 2 month well baby check at the doctor’s. As most of you know, this includes shots. Three of them to be exact.
If you know me at all you know that I really struggle with needles. Pregnancy was tough for me with all the blood work and shots. I know a lot of people say that they don’t like needles, but I’m telling you- I’m a baby. Anytime I knew there were needles involved with a doctor’s appointment, I made Brent come. They used to hold me down when I was a kid.
So, luckily Brent was there at Mason’s doctor’s appointment. I wouldn’t have been able to handle it. I almost started crying. I mean- with all the modern technology and advances in medicine you’re telling me there is no way to get vaccines into your system without a needle. I figured there would be a laser gun they could just shoot you with by now.
Mason screamed his head off. duh. He didn’t even enjoy the cool circus band-aids they gave him. You don’t get those when you grow up, you know. So, I took him to the mall and bought him a new shirt. It made him feel much better. Especially after I let his bottle leak all over the one he was wearing.
Mother of the year right here. 🙂
