Yesterday was a day that I absolutely had not been looking forward to. I, myself, had anxiety over B getting his shots for kindergarten. I didn't know if I should warn him or not or how to handle it, so I posted to the group to get all of your feedback. Great adivce was given and shared.
I wasn't sure if I should tell him or not - but since he's a big boy, and I'm always so proud of him no matter what, I thought I'd go ahead and tell him on the way over. To my surprise, he actually handled it really well and didn't seem to care at all. I asked him if he wanted to get ice cream afterwards or even a slurpee. He said "no thanks". WHAT? Is this my child?
The nurse came in while I was reading him a book on my lap. She had three needles in her hand and asked him to hop up on the table. I told him I'd finish reading him the book while he was up there. I stood next to him and continued reading while he looked at the illustrations and didn't flinch once. Before I could turn the page, the shots were over and I proudly declared that he was a CHAMP.
When we got in the car, he asked me to take him to Wendy's to get a grilled chicken wrap. I did, and ordered him a frosty too! :)
