There are days when I wish time would just stand still until I say, “I’m ready to move on.”
Yesterday, Kylie got the last two vaccinations she needed in order to start preschool. While at the pediatrician’s office, she made the employees laugh with her goofy sense of humor. I thought she’d be scared and quiet so I found myself surprised at all the silly things she was saying to them. But, all that changed when she got her vaccinations.
Even though the vaccinations were quick, with one right after the other, Kylie felt the difference. The first vaccination went really fast and almost painless. The second one was a little more painful. After the medical assistant was done with the second one, Kylie was very upset and said, “Oouw! That one hurt.” Then while the medical assistant was putting on the band-aids, Kylie said, “You hurt me!” and started crying with more, “You hurt me!” in her sobs.
In an earlier blog post, I said Kylie was starting preschool this month but she’s actually starting early September. Kida, btw, starts 4th grade next week. We went earlier this week to register and to find out who her teacher was. There was a certain teacher she wanted and she didn’t get that teacher so in front of the gentleman who handed her the index card with her teacher’s name on it, she said, “Aww, I didn’t get Ms. (teacher’s name).” It was embarrassing. Anyway, I can’t believe Kida is going to 4th grade. After 5th grade she’ll be heading on to middle school.
