4 Shots & the playground

Today Owen had to go back to the pediatrician for his annual shots and his flu shot. That meant he was going to get two in each arm. OUCH.

In hopes of avoiding a complete meltdown of screams, kicks and tons of tears, I went over with Owen what was going to happen that morning and also on the drive over to the doctor's office. I told him he was going to get four shots, but that they would be over quick and he should be brave so that he can get stickers at the end.

This kiddo was a rock star. No tears, no screams, nothing but a very brave little man. Here he is showing off his awesome cartoon band-aides that he most certainly earned.

That's my boy.

The nurses were so impressed. Vivi ~ watch and learn. You're up in less than 3 months. 

Then we headed to the playground so that he could work out his arms to lessen the pain for tomorrow. We did the monkey bars. Vivi just hung around looking cute on the swing.
