i bribed Tom with a bag of pokemon marbles! If he had his jab and was a good boy he could have the marbles, my dad came and sat with him and they had Tom and Poppa time!

The dr was impressed with his behaviour and more so with my dads vintage motorbike which was parked right under the window, they spent more time chatting about the bike than they did putting the needle in Toms arm, once we got out of the surgery hed forgotton all about it!

Bribery sounds good - Martha had hers the other week and just whimpered - bless her Love
Also, if they are anything like my surgery then they have stickers and sweets on hand for just this purpose

I just told Joseph (who had his in sept just after he was 4) that if he didnt have them he wouldnt get to school and it did hurt but not as much as staying at home with my ALL day when he wasnt allowed to school Embarassed I did buy him an ice-cream afterwards.

(problem was when he had to get his flu jab and he wouldnt go to the nurse because he didnt need the jab because he had had his for school!!!)

Charlotte was really excited that she was going to the drs for her jabs, unfotunately my fears that she had no idea how much it was going to hurt were confirmed when she screamed down the surgery Upset

We took her to the supermarket with George (who had jabs at the same time) to buy a magazine afterwards to cheer them up.
