I know it's been a while since the last post. Let's see what has been going on.
Neo's T-ball has been going well. His first game is next week. I'm sure it is going to be quite a show.
His baseball pictures were yesterday, but he had to miss them. Why? Well, Neo had a doctor's appointment that ran REALLY late. He went in to have the doctor look at his feet (he has been complaining about them hurting every now and then). But, what he didn't know was the he was also going to get his next round of immunization shots.
I tried to prep him a bit in the morning telling him that if something hurts at the doctor's office, he doesn't have to cry. He can just grit his teeth and be a big boy. He agreed, but he had no concept of the doctor causing any pain. He has always associated it with feeling better.
The doctor's appointment ran very late, and Christian called me after they left. "Well, it's over" she said.
"Did he cry?"
"Oh yeah. He wasn't too happy. By the time we got to the third shot, we had to hold him down."
"Can I speak to him?"
I hear some background noise as Christian hands her phone to Neo. Then, all I hear is sniffling through the phone...
"Buddy, are you there?"
(in a low crumbling voice) "... it hurt daddy."
