A Shot in the Arm

Although Natalie is excited about the prospect of Kindergarten, yesterday I burst her bubble a bit with the news that she'd need to get a few shots before blazing a trail through the school hallways.

"I don't want a check-up," she said.

"I know, Natalie.  No one does, but it's a school requirement.  Don't worry.  I'll be right by your side," I said.

After a moment of contemplating my offer, she picked up a photo of Noah she found lying in the car and asked, "Mom, do you think I could bring this photo of Noah with me to the appointment?  Then I could just pretend he was holding my hand."

Now, that's what you call "a shot in the arm."

A lip whistle prize.  Hmmm...I don't think my pediatrician likes me very much.
