FOX: You had your first needles today. I wish I could say that I was brave and sat with you while you had them done. Instead, I sent you in with your daddy and stood outside the room anxiously waiting for the scream. You were very brave though and only cried a little. I remember taking your big sister to have her first set of needles. I thought I was up for it, I thought “I’ll be fine, I hear her scream all the time”. I was not. I remember feeling a bit sick and shaky on the bus ride home that day. I’ve promised myself that I’ll take you in next time. Luckily, your next needles are still two months away.

  1. Jarvis had his 18 month old needles this week. Like you each time I think I will go in, but each time it is his Dad, even on one occasion his big sister. I just can't do it. I am frightened my fear of needles will show.
