Anjelia can finally look forward to starting the kindergarten process! She’s been cringing at the thought of kindergarten because of the dreaded kindergarten shots! She faced her fears today (she really wasn’t given a choice as I literally dragged her out of the van as she clung to the seat belt crying) and got FOUR shots. Poor baby. We are BOTH very relieved. I was dreading the shots myself because I knew how scared she was. Her friends Jaden and Evely went with her and they all three were given coupons for free sundaes at McDonald’s!
All of my children have handled the shots differently. Lydia literally sat there stone faced and didn’t even flinch. No big deal. Jessica was scared but handled it well until the needles came out. Elaina was so excited she bounced up and down while waiting for the nurse. Anjelia, well we’ve been over that. It reminds me to be careful about judging behavior. A lot of it has to do with individual personality.
(Evely is in pajamas because she just left her Mother’s Day Out slumber party!)
Now we can go to kindergarten enrollment next week and Anjelia won’t have dread in her gut. She is soooooo excited about kindergarten now. She’ll be going to pre-kindergarten summer school this June. All of the girls loved it.
Anjelia keeps showing off her band aids and everyone comments on how brave she was. She emphatically says, “No, I wasn’t brave.”
