shots and the necessary drama

A few months ago we had a fun little visit to the doctor to get everyone up to date on their shots.  It was not without drama as Elise and Lilly fed off of each other's tears, crying about their misfortune for the rest of the evening and into the next day.

Because of this, I didn't tell Lilly the complete truth when we were heading to her follow up.  I mentioned something about drinks at sonic but left out that we would be stopping for shots first.  When we pulled into the parking lot, she refused to get out of the car.  It didn't get much better as she suddenly had to go to the bathroom when the nurse came into our room.  I had my doubts, but she is still having accidents enough that I took her to the bathroom.  After waiting for a few minutes, I asked if she REALLY still needed to go to the bathroom.  Her response?  Yep, just after everyone at the doctor's went home.  Her next approach?  After the first shot, she tried to convince the nurse that she only needed one.  Pretty rational for a four year old.  :)  

So why am I bringing this up a month later?  Yesterday, Lilly said that she wanted to write a letter to the lady that gave her shots.  I refrained from commenting as I wanted to see what was going to happen next.  After some time at the table, I hear her read out her note to Elise.  "Dear Shot Lady, I love you.  I really appreciate you giving me my shots.  Love, Lilly."  Ah, four year olds are so great at forgiveness.  :)
