If you can't be a good example, you can at least be a cautionary tale, right?
Yeah, so, if everyone's saying you need to get the flu shot? Don't wait until January to do it. Because chances are it'll be too late by then. Like it was with me! It turns out that my poor little boy had already caught the flu a few days before we got the vaccine, and my husband and I caught it from him. Which was well-deserved, considering how much we suck as parents for not getting him the vaccine earlier.
Having the flu sucks, by the way. In case any of you were wondering. ::whines::
Don't let this happen to you, kids! Get the flu vaccine!
