Ok - not really through the heart, but in the arm, and I guess also in the leg.
The girls had their flu shots today. Anna was first up and happily hopped in my lap like she was getting a shot of sugar. She did great and didn't even wince. I still can't believe that the same girl that screamed so hard after her last shots that they almost sedated her, did great with her shots this time.
Julia was next and although she was trying to talk me into letting Em go next, she did great too.
Then Em was up. She had a flu shot and her polio vaccination. She whimpered a bit after the 2nd one but no crying and she was smiling by the time I finished zipping her sleeper back up.
The nurse told the girls that they did great and she wished all the little kids (and big kids) that get their shots were as brave as they were. The receptionist was shocked (as was I) that there was no screaming from our room.
Tough chicks. That's the only kind I breed.
