At a corner of the paeditrician' s clinic, SueAnne was playing in the small Tiny Tykes tunnel with her sister, Suzanne. The queue was quite long so she had a jolly good time crawling in and out of that tunnel. Soon, it was her turn to see Dr Flo. She was the paed that treated SueAnne for pneumonia a few months ago. Apart from a follow-up check, SueAnne was due for her 12 month jab.
To take her attention away from the incoming needle, we gave her a very expensive toy, Mrs B's Sony Ericson handphone! Yes, SueAnne has this fixation with handphones. Whenever mine or Mrs B's rang, she will clamber up on us and try to take the handphone for herself, wailing on top of her voice and disturbing our tele-conversation.
Back to the needle, Dr Flo gave her a quick injection at the butt. Almost immediately...
SueAnne's expression changed to "cry baby cry", and Mrs B comforted her as much as she could. My heart ached seeing her cry but what to do? It's for her own good. Go on doc, cucuk that MMR in. Then, as quickly as it began, she stopped crying. I think she cried for only 15 seconds, tops.
Well well well, looks like my girl has inherited her daddy's thick buaya skin, hor? :P
Belacans says... "fair yet thick skin, good hor?"
