So I got a recorded message call yesterday from a "shall remain nameless" military installation saying it had come to their attention that my child might not have been vaccinated. Immediately I thought, "how do they know Nadia hasn't had her chicken pox shot yet?!!" (She's up to date on all of her other shots but I'm hoping she'll get the c. pox the old-fashioned way, but with everyone being vaccinated these days it's unlikely so she'll probably end up getting the shot eventually as immunity, one way or the other, is required to go to school.) The message then said, if in fact the child is immunized, press blah blah, or if you have questions call blah blah, and I'm all like, no thanks, and hung up. As I scratched my head wondering how big brother had managed to keep track of this minor indiscretion I suddenly realized that I have another kid. A kid that just turned 2 months old. Whoa. Calm down nancies! The clock just struck 2 months, like, 4 days ago. Seriously?!!! And yes, she's scheduled to have said shots tomorrow (which, ironically, was the first available appt. they could give me.) Which is now today. After the worst night of sleep in a month. 6-8 hour block you say? HA!
