Well, today is flu shot day for the boys. When it comes to flu shots for the old people in this house, the opinions and reactions vary. J can get a flu shot and be just fine. He gets one every year and I don't think he would go a single year without one. I, on the other hand, got the first I can remember back in 2003. I prepped before by taking Tylenol and everything they tell you to do. I was sick as a dog within 24 hours. Of course, when you are preggo, they "really suggest/make you" get a flu shot. I did with D and G and was sick until they were born and could actually take something strong to rid myself of the illness. I hate flu shots and will NOT get one unless I am pregnant. Period.
Now, how will my little men handle it? Hopefully it won't bother them, like their dad. Last year, they just slept for a day and I fed them Tylenol to try to ensure them not getting too sick.
They might have to go get a free McDonald's ice cream after this visit.. shhhh don't tell dada..
How do you handle flu shots? Do you get them?
