I felt like a terrible mother today!

Sprinkles had her one year check-up today which was fine and dandy.  It was quite pleasant at first.  I love her doctor and it was fun to see her and brag tell her all about Sprinkles’ massive vocabulary (35 words!) and her accomplishments.

 But then we got to the end of the appointment and the dreaded vaccination shots.  She had six shots (one was a flu shot) and they also had to draw blood to do a lead test.  I felt awful having to help hold her little legs down.  At least two nurses were there to give her shots at the same time but it was still awful.  She was crying “Mama, no!”  It totally broke my heart!

 She recovered quickly and is feeling okay.  Her legs are a little sore but nothing major.

I am thankful she won’t remember today although I will never forget.
