This part of my heart...the daughter part is hurting today because my daughter dearest is hurting...not urgently and not terribly but the poor thing has sore arms due to the many (5) shots she received today. Vaccinations preparing her for kindergarten later this year, catch-up shots from last year and an extra vaccination because she has a cochlear implant and runs a higher risk of contracting meningitis. Boy oh boy was the child pissed off before, during and after her visit to the nurse with the needles....bloody murder screaming as I am forcing her sleeve over her shoulder for the quick jab...scream'n for her papa like I was a stranger. Poor baby, my heart was breaking...at least we are done for many years. Maybe I should have rethought the whole to vaccinate or not to vaccinate controversy.
We did start the morning off with girl time at Starbucks and followed up with a viewing of "Snow White". Delia had a routine check-up...yup all looks good and for the first time in her little life she has made it into the 7th percentile for height & weight...wahoo rockin' in at 38" and 30lbs...you grow girl!!
Where has my baby gone?
