The Son had his 5 year old check up yesterday morning and the poor kid had to get four vaccinations! It was traumatic for all parties involved but
The Son was VERY interested in why he was getting the vaccines and wanted full details on all of the diseases that would be prevented by them. The office gives us sheets of information about the diseases and he insisted that I read the entire sheet about each and every vaccine and we continued to discuss them throughout the day. Oddly enough he was familiar with the disease "lockjaw" and was pleased that his tetanus shot would be preventing that should he ever step on a rusty nail. Incidentallym we've now added "doctor" to his list of possible professions that he would like to be when he grows up. For the record, here's that list.
3. Ramine Biologist (that would be Marine Biologist to most of us)
4. President of the United States (He's already said Momma can live in the White House with him)
Ok, back to the story...
We came home, The Son had his special treat of one mini Kit Kat bar and a bag of caramel rice cakes. Yes, rice cakes... The Son doesn't get much junk food and caramel rice cakes are definitely a treat for him. I decided to have a bowl of cereal and another cup of coffee so I got it all ready to take in the study to eat while I was on the computer facebooking and reading blogs. (Don't judge me, it's OK to eat in front of the computer if The Son is watching "Noggin") I brought the immunization record into the study with me to put it in the envelope with The Son's birth certificate, (the birth certificate that I had to send away for because I can't find the original right now.) At least I thought I brought it into the study with me, I guess I forgot about it because this morning I realized that it was now missing. It can't be in that many places, and I've searched them all but to no avail. That's why I'm convinced that those naughty leprechauns came back and took the paper. There's no other option. I honestly cannot figure out where the darn thing could be. Looks like I'll be making another trip back to the pediatrician again sometime before next week. Damn leprechauns...
