Flu Shot Drama

As a person who has a fear of needles, the phone call from the pediatrician's office reminding me of my daughter's appointment for the flu shot was the last thing that I want to hear.  The first thing I remembered after opening my eyes this morning was the voicemail from the doctor that I never checked.  Ugh!  The appointment is today and somehow I had it written in my calendar for Friday.

Did I mention that I called last week before the funeral to reschedule.      

After all, in the last week I have sat in the middle of what I call a chaos tornado.  I've had a sinus infection, Emmie is teething, and I've been playing catch up on family birthday gifts (we had 4 this month).  Let's not mention the untimely death of my uncle and the trip to Atlanta that followed.  (Girl, get yo life!)

The "I don't want to put my big girl panties on and grow up" part of me wanted to call and reschedule, again!  But as I brushed my teeth I looked in the mirror and I realized that I'm some body's momma and I need to get it together!  Attitude stank and all, I got up made some breakfast and proceeded to get us ready for the dreaded flu shot.  We made it to the appointment, survived the shot, dropped by Sam's for some Huggies, and Emmie was knocked out before we made it back to our exit.  I would like to interject here that I should have gotten the attitude under control while I was standing in the mirror, since I didn't you know there was all kinds of drama along the way!

The Emmie doesn't want her hair combed kinda drama.
The I lost the comb right before I lost it on her kinda drama.
The I left the iPad in the house kinda drama.
The I'm in the car and realize I didn't comb my own hair kinda drama.
The we pulled out the driveway at the time of the appointment kinda drama.
The I called the office to tell them I was running late and they took a deep breath kinda drama.
The red car in front of me is driving 20 on the freeway kinda drama.

I am really working on trying to get myself together and somewhat drama-free, but I'm realizing that this motherhood thing is a seriously humbling experience!
