Friday Fun

There’s no more fun way to spend your “day off” than getting immunization shots for the kids!  Yea!

The kids had to get one more set of shots required before they hit kindergarten in a month.  The response from the school had been “Oh, they can get it anytime before school starts” up until today. This morning it turned into “YOU MUST TURN IN THEIR UPDATED IMMUNIZATION INFORMATION CARD IMMEDIATELY OR YOUR CHILDREN WILL NEVER GET INTO HARVARD! DO NOT PASS GO!!! DO NOT COLLECT $200!!!”

So I called the kids’ pediatrician to inquire about getting these shots today, only to be told that the only office that could help me was several time zones away, which, taking into account the traffic we have around here, would require me to leave now in hopes of getting there by winter.

After packing up the kids and pack animals with the requisite supplies for the arduous journey, we set out.  Luckily it really only took 55 minutes to get there.  Along the way, I had prepped the kids for what was going to happen.

J took it like a champ.

A, however, acted as if she were preparing for a role in the latest Omen sequel.  I had no idea somebody so small could produce such a blood-curdling sound.  I’m sure the other parents in the waiting room appreciated the sense of dread this sound instilled in their children.

But, as always, ice cream heals all wounds.

    That pre-K visit is the WORST. I think it took ice cream AND a trip to KK to shake off the bad mojo.
