November 10th

The year of the swine flu. My doctor insisted I get the preservative free version and that Mallory get one as soon as it was available. We both got immunized this week. Ironically both Mallory's flu shot and her H1N1 flu mist came from the health department as the pediatrician had LOTS of trouble getting their shipments. We have to go back for a second "booster" N1H1 mist in a month. Here's hoping I remember! Sorry Ben, you don't get one as you only qualify for the "seasonal flu" vaccine.

Mallory was a SUPERSTAR getting her shots! After watching me get my shot, she was a bit concerned. But we practiced saying "little pinch, all done," for several days in between my appointment and hers. She was also stoked at the idea of getting a band-aid. So I took a Dora band-aid with us and she did great. We had to amend the saying to, "little pinch, little tear, all done." But she was so happy to have Dora on her arm, I really don't think she is traumatized at all!
