Three of my kids needed some immunizations, and since there was no school yesterday for a teacher workday, I figured it was a good time to take them in. The girls got lucky and were able to sit this round out, it was a boy event. E went first- we were hoping if the twins saw that he didn’t cry, they wouldn’t be as afraid. It sort of worked.
Dylan was happy to hop up on the table, and was fine during the prep- smiling and whatnot when they swabbed his thighs with the alcohol wipes. Not so happy though when the jabs started. Ryan on the other hand, I think remembered that it was going to suck and started crying and saying no as soon as we sat him up there.
After it was over, Ryan stopped being upset immediately after getting off the exam table, but Dylan kept whimpering for awhile. Once home, Dylan wanted the bandaids off immediately, but Ryan wouldn’t let us near his. It’s so funny how opposite these two can be.
They were fine all yesterday afternoon, but this morning Ryan was walking super slow, all stiff like Frankenstein saying his legs hurt. It was cracking me up- because I knew they couldn’t hurt too bad because he’d be running and jumping one minute, and then I’d remind him about his legs and he’d go back to his Frankenstein walk.
It’s going to be a short week at school- with Monday off already and then there’s no school Friday for parent/teacher conferences- report card time! Hectic too, with Halloween thrown right in the middle.
In other news- how did you all fare with the storm? Here in coastal Carolina, we barely got hit. We had wind and rain, but it wasn’t enough to lose power or anything. I was happy about that- we seem to always lose power during storms. When that one hurricane hit a little over a year ago, we had no power for several days and it make me so cranky and I wasn’t even pregnant then!
In fact, the weather was mild enough that E and I braved the storm and went to see a movie on Saturday. We saw Pitch Perfect- I highly recommend it. It had good music, a cute storyline, and it was really funny too. The only problem is that ever since we saw it, I’ve been unable to get Ace of Base’s The Sign out of my head.
