Day 43- What happens when you try to get your kid a flu shot
I took my five year old to the Health Department Flu Shot Clinic and she was not happy about it at all. First the nice lady explained she wouldn't be getting a shot at all- they have the Flu Mist nasal spray. She watched a few other kids- who didn't cry. But as soon as it was her turn, she clamped her had over her nose and started screaming. So, yeah, I had to bribe her. It took an offer of a trip to McDonald's for a Happy Meal. I held her arms down and she got it. Then off to McDonald's we went for a Chicken McNugget Happy Meal with Fries and a Strawberry Shortcake toy. It was her first Happy Meal since August. She ate the whole thing in record time. Oh well...
