Shots are Bad

I am insane. I know that is not a shocking statement to anyone who knows me well, but I felt it needed to be said. I made appointments for both Abby and Grayson to have their check-ups today. And shots. So, clearly, I am insane. I thought I could handle it. I had even talked it over with Abby. I explained how she had to have the shots before she could start kindergarten. And how she had to show Grayson how a big kid handles getting shots.

I knew there would be tears, possibly some screaming. I was prepared for that. What I was not prepared for the nervous energy Abby had that manifested itself in constant chatter and rapid movements (I have no idea who she gets that from...It's not like I talk a lot about nothing at all. Ever.). Nor was I prepared for Grayson getting so upset at Abby getting so upset over having her shots. He might have cried more over her shots than his own. He, however, bounced back much more quickly than she did. Abby is still limping around. On alternate legs, since she did get shots in both legs. Nice.

And for the record, I probably will not attempt this again...
