As many of you know I am leaving on July 28th to go to Belize on a mission trip. Unfourtunately I had to get 3 shots for the trip. ouch. Thinking about these shots I remeber another time at the docotors when I had to drink a little tiny thing of Polio Vaccine….
When I was just a wee little tyke, probably around 2 years old I was at the doctors for some shots for whatever I needed those for. Well the sweet kind nurses then proceeded to tell me that I needed to drink this small thing of Polio Vaccine. For some reason I freaked out. I locked my lips and wouldn’t open them. Being the sweet kind nurses they were, they didn’t have a clue what to do. Then I began to run around the room from them because I feared that Polio Vaccine. I don’t know what it was, but my wee little tyke mind led me to believe that the Polio Vaccine would be painful.
My mom then decided it was time for her to take action. Not wanting to make a scene in front of the nurses sweetly said “Leesy you need to open your mouth and drink this.” Still being stubborn I just shook my head NO. Well it seeemed that hours had gone by and my mom wasn’t playing Mrs. Nice Woman anymore. She took me and head locked me and squished my cheeks together and forced that Polio Vaccine down my throat. And that was that.
So those of you who have kids or might have kids in the future, learn from my mom. If your child won’t take there Polio Vaccine then head lock them, squish their cheeks and force it down their throats. It should work like a charm! = ]
