she prefers shots

at the doctor's today they had one nasal mist left for the girls' booster flu vaccine.
dilemma.
which child to subject to the poke?
whitney or devan? whitney or devan?
so i asked.
"whitney, do you want a squirt up the nose or a pokey shot in the leg?"
not even a split-second later,
"i want the shot mom!"
awesome.
"you know it will poke, right?"
"yup, but it won't hurt a lot."
she watched with interest as the needle went in and the vaccine was injected.
all done.
then she smiled at the nurse.
so weird.
i know the shot really doesn't hurt very much at all, but what kid wants one?

You've got to have an attitude like that to do the rest of the stuff she does!!!!! Remember running from the back of the crib to fling herself out? Remember cuffing herself to a tree? I am sure there is more where that came from!!! Ohhhh love her!!!
