i got a copy of emmy's immunization record. the lady behind the desk at the health and human services building showed me where the shots she still needs were listed. emmy started crying when i told her that she needed shots. she's got a well check appointment with the doctor in a couple of weeks. i'm hoping they'll do it that day. i don't believe in lying to my kids about hard things. i told her she needed some shots and that it would be okay. it just makes me tear up when i see her crying over something like this.
