So remember how I had to get that gnarly shot in my "hip" a couple of days ago? And I pretended like it tickled for Elie's sake? Well ever since then, we've been telling her that soon it was going to be her turn for tickle shots. This morning I woke her up bright and early, got her dressed in pants and a sweater "just like Mommy!", and then Daddy came and picked us up and we drove through the flood waters down to the clinic on base for her 2 year old wellness appointment. She was a little reluctant to let the doctor look into her ears and mouth, so she sat in Daddy's lap and held onto blankie for reassurance. And then came the tickle shots. It probably goes without saying, that they did not tickle, and we're evil parents for tricking her into thinking that they would. The rest of my day will be spent nursing a cranky baby back to health, along with lots and lots of real tickles.
