at the doctor's today they had one nasal mist left for the girls' booster flu vaccine.
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!"
"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.
then she smiled at the nurse.
i know the shot really doesn't hurt very much at all, but what kid wants one?
