Mommy penance

I really wish somebody would assign me some "Hail Mary"s or something because I feel like the most rotten, bad, mean Mommy today. Sweetie had her big doctor's appointment this morning, where they gave her 3 immunization shots and took blood. I don't know why they must do that all at once. My poor baby! They got her in both legs and one arm. The arm was for the bloodwork, which was the worst part because the needle had to stay in her vein for a looong time- maybe it just seemed like forever to me because I had to hold her while she screamed and sobbed, but gosh. I walked out crying right along with her and I'm still kind of teary when I think about it- it was awful! To make it all worse, they couldn't get enough blood out of her and we have to go back next week. I don't know if I can even bring myself to do it again, but I guess I'm going to have to suck it up and be a mean Mommy once more. I officially declare this the worst part of parenting.

Oh poor Sweetie! And poor you too - being a mean mommy is no fun, i'm sure, but well done for being brave!
