Paige got her first round of immunization shots yesterday. I'm glad I wasn't there. I don't think I could have handled watching her get jabbed by a needle. As it was, she was a pretty grumpy baby for the rest of the day. She was inconsolable at one point and I just had a rage that somebody did this to my child. Somebody made her feel bad. It didn't matter that it was for her own health and safety. She was upset and I wanted the person who made her upset to pay. She settled down after we administered some infant tylenol but I had the realization that I really need to downshift the over-protectiveness or we're all going to have a tough time when she starts going to school.
