Guess what I learned today?
That taking your child to their 2 month well check visit at the doctor’s office is the worst thing ever!
My poor baby had to get shots — lots and lots of shots. Seriously, I have never known pain like that.
Yes — me.
What? Did you think this was about Tom’s feelings?
I put my little baby on the big huge doctor’s table and I was allowed to stay with him near his head while he was getting his shots because the nurse said I could try to keep him calm. What?! I need to be calmed down! I’m a total mess here! I’ve been spending the past two months doing everything I could to keep him from crying. And bleeding. And now here they are torturing my little man!
Tom cried. But I cried harder.
And then they allowed me to pick him up and cuddle him and I was still crying. But Tom was not.
And then we got in the car and I was still crying. Tom was looking at me like I was insane. So I stopped. Don’t want my baby thinking I’m weak!
Thank goodness that’s over.
The doctor also said Tom is in the 90th percentile for weight and height right now. I need to find a big and tall store for babies.
