Injection 101

Today Carson and I both received our flu shots. I wasn't worried about Carson's reaction because we had talked about a couple of times so he knew what to expect. He watched as I got mine and then he sat on my lap and I held his arms. When he was finished, he got a sticker and a lollipop. He was so brave and took it like a champ! He was so proud of himself. He kept saying, "knee, shot " Although in reality they gave him the shot in his vastus lasteralus (aka his thigh) he would still point to his knee. After dinner we were playing and he was pretending to administer shots to his stuffed bears. At first he would place the bears on his lap to administer the injection.

Then he would have me hold either the bear or as he likes to call it the baby bear while he gave them a shot. After awhile he said, "your turn." So he held the bear while I administered the shot...(pictured above) too cute. I love that kid!

You are such a good mom! I love that you explained everything to him so well, that he knew what to expect and handled it like a champ. And that is sooo cute how he was giving the bear a shot!
