Yesterday was Alex's 18-month well-child visit. Alex HATES going to the doctor. She's clingy and whiney the whole time and doesn't cooperate with the nurses or doctor. I admit that, with both of my kids, I cried the first time they got shots as newborns. But we've been through it enough times by now that I've toughened up considerably. So I wasn't prepared for my tears...But this time Alex remembered and knew what was coming. As soon as the doctor left and the nurse walked in Alex started clinging to me and sobbing hysterically, "Owie! Owie! Owie!" It was heartbreaking!
