Grant just got 4 immunization shots, plus a shot for a TB test in order to register for kindergarten. I tried to tell him that, yes, it will hurt a little, but they will help to keep him safe and healthy, yadda, yadda, yadda.
He was OK with that story, but then I had to hold him down while he got the shots. The sharp cry of pain, then the tears each time was bad enough, but the look betrayal that came over his face, through the tears, was awful. I think it truly did hurt me more than it hurt him.
I can already tell that kindergarten is going to be tough for me.
