Toddlers are like balls

…they bounce back like you won’t believe.

My 16-month old preemie Skyler (can you still call her a preemie when she’s already a toddler?) – such a little trooper. Took her for follow-up jabs today for Hib and PCV (they don’t give these in Malaysia). Nurse said she’d do one on each thigh.

Yes, her fleshy, soft thighs.

I mean, aren’t there like a million nerves there? Why not the buttocks? So cruel. I love my girl’s chubby thighs.

Anyway, the poor girl screamed when the first one went in (didn’t see it coming), was shellshocked for a while, but screamed throughout the second shot.

But when the nurse pasted on the colourful stickers, Sky stopped and cooed at them, her stubby little left finger pointing at one.

And she actually smiled, eyes still glistening with tears that were practically pouring a second ago.

Now that’s what I call bounce.
