Unfortunately, My Kids Hate Me Tonight

Fortunately, the Mackinac Island Medical Center has always provided flu vaccines to island residents - shots for adults and nasal mist for the kiddos.

Unfortunately, this year, they weren't able to get any of the nasal mist.

Fortunately, they had plenty of doses to vaccinate us when we arrived this afternoon.

Unfortunately, my children were not mentally prepared to get shots today.

Fortunately, the nurses did a great job putting the kids at ease about having to get a flu shot.

Unfortunately, and unbeknownst to Mama, each of the kids were due for additional shots. (Two additional for S and one additional for K - ugh.) 

Fortunately, it was over quickly, despite the pain.

Unfortunately, I am most definitely not my childrens' favorite parent tonight.

Fortunately, I can live with that. And, they'll live with out getting the flu, tetanus or HPV, which fortunately, is a very good thing.

Inspired by one of our favorite books.

I got the tdp shot last summer so I could see my grandbaby..... and guess what.... insurance does not cover it since it was given at the doctor's office and not the drug store..... go figure.... I hate my insurance.

This is one of my favourite styles to use in english tutoring - I'll do one side and the student does the other and we see how long we can make the story!

Ha ha...I love it! If that is the only reason they dislike you for a few hours, it was completely worth it!
