My 8-week-old will get his first shots next week. Can't wait to have a social life again. I am just so apprehensive taking an unvaxed baby ANYWHERE.

I'd been meaning to check the school calendar to see when the next rounds of shots were so I could give DD a heads up. Guess I should have gotten on that a little sooner. It was last week and DD found out when the nurse popped into her gym class to get her - she was the first called. Oops. Poor kid. She was mad when she got home.
Her poor arm was so sore for the next couple days that she couldn't possibly unload the dishwasher or pick up any of her belongings dropped on the floor! Oh the moaning and clutching at her arm whenever she tried! And I don't doubt that it was a little sore, but I also note that it didn't bother her at all those same days when she was throwing her sled over our 5 foot fence and then climbing over it herself to go sledding, wrestling with her brother, and in martial arts class or swimming lessons, or pretty much any other time when she wasn't bemoaning the lack of warning or being asked to do something she didn't want to do.
It was the second round of Gardasil and hepatitis B.
