Today was the day we went to the doctor for the kindergarten check-up. Knowing that shots were to be given, a reward was in place...baseball cards...he is totally into baseball cards. Fortunately for the little guy he went with me to my doctor and rest assured was ready for his appointment 2 1/2 hours later. Ironically, I needed to get a shot today too, so he held my hand and witnessed mom's courage and strength. Somehow though, he ended up with a sticker and tattoo, me a prescription. He sat on the table being examined with giggles in tow. He not only hopped on one foot, but did so in a circle. The urine test, well not so easy. After drinking much water, he was able to fill up a cup plus some. He sat one my lap, held my hands, and counted as the nurse instructed. No tears, no cries, not even a whimper. Three shots and he was out of there. As we went to the car he said that he was now ready for kindergarten. I am not sure I am ready for kindergarten.
