Bad Mom

Today I took the two younger ones to their well-child checkups. I'm not too keen on these appointments, I think they're a waste of time, but alas I did it. Alas must be my word of the day as I wrote that in my last post also. Alas (lol) I must continue. Gabe had to get 4 shots. He did not want them. He cried. He hid behind the table. I held onto him but it did no good. He cried. He screamed. I couldn't console him. I was holding him, watching his sweet face and then I almost began to cry. Poor kid. Poor mom. And here I almost started Abby's shots today...I'd really have been a mess! I want to start slow on hers so I need to look into it more and figure out where I begin. I told Gabe I'd get him a cookie or something at the store. He picked out a doughnut (a lot cheaper than a candy bar!). The older two were jealous. They were mean. On the way home everyone was still carrying on about it and Gabe retorts, "You guys were born before me so you got more stuff!" Oh man did I bust up laughing. How true is that! They've had more than him in their 'longer' lives ;) Smart guy, good logic! The older two are still talking about their lack of a 'treat'. I bought ice cream bars but they're not getting any because they can't have the right attitude. Ya snooze, ya lose. Boy, am I a mean mom today...

lol on Gabes comment. Abby should have been the one fussing about not getting a treat due to her being the youngest (I know she didn't get shots), she hasn't had as much as Gabe or the other two. lol He sure is a dandy.

Poor Gabe. I dread taking Jalynn to any DRs. She knows what going on. Shell put up a fight before we ever leave. Kids dont forget those things.

LOL I was the 3rd child so I know exactly what he means! Smart boy for realizing this now.

Another 3rd child here :) I don't remember ever getting a treat by myself like that either!

I hate shots, it is so much harder when they are older and can anticipate them.

I'm laughing at this post....such a mean mom you are. :) Happy belated birthday to your darling little Abby! Aren't they so fun? Di has been hilarious lately and I just love it!
