The Bug has a new party trick

Today I took the boys for their annual checkups. The Bug got 3 shots,
and when she gave him the first one he did that big
gasping thing babies do- that thing that makes you say "take a breath
baby! breathe!" Only he DIDN'T. And he passed right out. He came to
asleep and snoring and did not wake up. He was very pale and his lips
turned white and he was super limp. The nurse (who is youngish, but not
new, she's been our nurse at least 3 years now) was a bit taken aback.
She had never seen a kid who passed out and didn't wake up
immediately. She brought in another nurse and they proclaimed him fit
to leave, but it was a bit shocking.

The terrible twos ought to be a LOT fun!

(You thought I was gonna say "Standing!", didn't you?



  1. That sounds rather scary! Glad to know he's fine.

  2. What the heck?? Has he ever done that before? I guess passing out made the other two shots easier but man, that would have scared me to death!

  3. Awww! I'm glad everything's ok.

    My niece went through a couple weird phases while I was her nanny...for awhile, she liked to stick her finger down her throat to make herself start gagging and puking and then when she was older, sometimes when we were driving and she was in the car seat she'd pretend she was choking to death. So scary!!! Little kids are weird. ;)

  4. Oh no! Glad that he's OK, but how frightening!

  5. That would have scared me senseless! Glad he's ok :)

  6. Wow, that sounds really scary. I would have panicked!
