OK guys, tell me. Does this sound like Flip wants to be part of my pain? Does he like to see his Mom go through the thing that he hates most? I found this very funny. It makes me wonder what really goes through his mind. Just so you guys know, I am always the one to take Flip for his shots. Not that Jeff wouldn't but I stay at home so of course it falls to me. Last August they had to give him 4 shots and he remembers this like it was yesterday. It was horrible for him!!
I have had several obgyn appointments the last two weeks which Flip has not been able to go to (for reasons you all know.) He has been staying with a friend of mine that he calls Miss Melody. Next week I have to go back to get an injection which Flip calls a 'pinch.' So here it is:
"Flip, guess what?" I say.
"Next week you get to go to the doctor with Mommy. I am only going to be there for a few minutes and you get to go with me!"
"No thanks, I will stay with Miss Melody."
"But Flip all I have to do is get a shot and there is no reason for you to stay with her when it will only take a few minutes."
"No, I will go play with Miss Melody. Mom what's a shot?"
" You know baby, a pinch."
"Oh really?! Momma I wanna go with YOU!!"
I thought about all this for a few minutes and was confused with the excitement about my 'pinch' when it hit me, Flip was excited that it was finally my turn to get a 'pinch' and not his. He just wants to be there for my pay back for all the pinches I have to take him to get!
