It was perfect timing when Bella quickly said she had to go potty and so we left together. When we returned, Symph was crying and starting to become a bit out of control, so I knew the news had to have been given about a vaccine. I asked her what was wrong and that was the end, she cried and cried, and cried and cried. Those few minutes of the routine check by their doctor were horrible because Symph just continued on. The baby did well with his shots, obviously he cried, but dear Lord.....Symphony showed us the power of her lungs and vocal chords. Her screm was piercing, and it was so much worse when Dom had to hold her down. She was injected with the shot and my oh my did the drama continue. I thought she was surely going to pass out from hyperventilating, or throw up. I had no more patience by this time, so Dom had to go through whole take a big, deep breath drill with her. I reminded Dom how important it was for him to be at these appointments :) I failed to mention that Symph's screaming freaked Bella out and started her little tears going, and made the baby cry before he was even given the shot....sheesh!
Symph was promised a toy (we've come to love the 99 Cent Store, Dollar Tree, and Viva Bargain!) and a dinner at an actual restaurant for her bravery (huh?). We ate at Poncho Villas (our first dining out experience as a family of 5), and then Dom took the girls for their dollar toy.
