A long time ago, when I heard the word 'shots' I would think of alcohol and fun. Now that I'm a parent, the word 'shot' taken on a whole new meaning. It means I have to restrain one child as he's poked and prodded while trying to make my other child stay calm. My daughter has a needle phobia. I can't blame her. I do too. But she is a screamer. She hates to see her little brother in any pain. She cries when he's poked, which scares him and makes him scream. Him screaming makes her think he's in a lot of pain so she screams even louder.
I have to take them for shots this morning. Wish me luck. I think by tonight I'll be ready for some shots of my own. And not the kind that poke you.
