I dunt wanna a pinch!

It's time for flu shots. I had the flu really bad last Christmas. I couldn't get out of bed for days...I only got out long enough for the kids to open their presents and I never felt so bad in my life. I really thought I was dying and I was so dramatic. I kept asking "baby why does my body hurt so bad. When will I get better?

So this year we are getting flu shots. Especially the kids.

Me-Don't forget we have to get flu shots.

Hubby-Crap...Walgreens has them today from 2-5...what time is it...is this the correct time. (clock in car showing 4:54)

(Me looking at cell phone)

Me-It's 4:57

Hubby-well we should be there in a minute...I saw it online earlier and it totally slipped my mind and I forgot to tell you. Oh well they are til 5 not 4:57.

So we get to Walgreens and they were packing up. I asked if we were too late and the girl said no we can give you one. I informed her we wanted to get one for my 3 year old (Zman was with his friend and I didn't feel like plunking down $75 for all of us to get a shot today...I know I know but I am going to check online tonight where they are giving free ones).

Hubby-Wow Love you dodged that bullet!


Me-No the flu shot baby.

Love-What? I dunt want a shot (tears are starting to fall)

Me-It's ok baby it's just a pinch...it will only hurt for a second.

Love-But I dunt wanna pinch...it make me cry. (repeat repeat repeat)

Me-Ok no shot...another time.

Love-No oder time mom ok...it hurts.

Me-Ok we will wait until we go to the doctor.

Love-I dunt wanna go to the doc ter (repeat repeat repeat)

Me-Ok don't worry Love, no shot ok.

Love-Daddy no shot mommy said.


Love-Now where we goin...no doc ter wight?

Daddy-You love hangin with mom and dad huh

Love-Yes...no shot wight? (repeat repeat repeat)

I tell you I could write a book with all of our conversations...she never stops talking. (In Kindergarten the teacher put on my report card that I talk to much...I guess it's safe to say the apple doesn't fall far from the tree)

We honestly forget she is only 3. Her school constantly asks us "Are you sure she is only 3, I mean the things that come out of her mouth"

On our way back from Walgreens she asks...

Love-Do scarecrows wike birds?

Where does she come up with this stuff?

And then today she wants me to have another baby.

Love-Mom can you hab anoder baby?

Me-What? No more babies

Love-Please Please Please...I wanna you have oder baby ok?

Me-Why do you want me to have another baby?

Love-Because (really she said because I mean she honestly knows the context in how to use this word and what it means)

Me-Because why?

Love-Because I wanna baby to sweep wight next to me. K, so you hab one? I be the mom wight?

Seriously folks I can't make this stuff up. This girl needs her own show!

And no joke...2.5 hours later (her timing couldn't be more perfect) as I post this Love is laying on the floor with her babies, her baby stroller and watching cars...out of the blue...

Mom-I dunt wanna go to the doc ter! I dunt wanna a pinch ok mom?

Last month, Ju Ju and Soapy were tricked into getting total 5 shots (JU JU 4 shots and Soapy 1) - I felt bad about it, but it had to be done...they cried and cried. Good luck with the shot, my dear.
