    Today I have to take Joshua to get a round of shots so he can start school tomorrow. I haven't said anything about the shots, best not to warn him before hand. I will have a treat for him to help ease the pain and remind him that tomorrow he goes to school. He's going to regular kindergarten with time set aside to help him with his special needs.

    This is going to be great.

    Yay for Joshua! I sure hope he likes his first day of school. I remember my first day... my Mom made sure that we were all pumped and excited about it. I couldn't wait! That was long before she was indoctrinated by the cult.

    I still look at the pictures she took before we left that day. I sure miss her. Are you going to take some pictures, MrsJones?

    I don't know if this will work for your Joshua, but with my kids, I would give them 2 tic tacs and tell them they were "happy pills". It always seemed to work well.

    When I took my first I cried more than she did...

    Knowing Joshua, I think he'll love it in school.

    I just told mine to take it like man. She's never forgiven me.

    Omgoodness, we took Joshua to get his shots. Hubby and I had to hold him down so the nurse could give him the shots. Boy was he mad. He shot off my lap and ran down the hall saying "That hurt!", "Stupid!!" and "I wanna go to Denny's!!" . He fussed in the waiting room and outside. Hubby's glad he didn't start cursing. I got him to calm down with some M&M's. He's OK now and it's like it never happened, as long as I don't talk about it.

    Tomorrow is going to be better. You guys just don't know. My baby's been out of school long enough and I'm so glad he's going back. I almost broke my heart when my other children went back and Joshua wasn't able to go. He had gotten dressed, ate breakfast, and even packed his backpack and told me that he was ready and I had to tell him "not yet". He hates when I say "not yet" or "wait a minute". But he's been good and patient and tomorrow is his reward.

    Love that boy.
