What a big girl!

A couple of weeks ago, I had to take Addie into Greenvale for a shot.
She is always such a trooper, but today even surprised me a bit.
When the nurse came in and sat down, I told Addie that she had to get a boo-boo shot.
As the nurse was putting her gloves on, Addie looked down at her leg and pointed.
She made sure the nurse saw where she was pointing.
The nurse - very surprised - looked up at me with the alcohol wipe in her hands.
I asked Addie if that was where the boo-boo shot should go.
She nodded the affirmative.
The nurse administered the shot, while Addie supervised the administration and the proper placement of the band-aid.
The nurse was very proud of her and so was I.
