Flu shots

Co-pay to take children to have a flu shot.... $100

Ice cream beforehand to take everyone's mind off of the shots $15

No tears, whining, yelling, or crying after flu shots PRICLESS



I think India was also surprised that our 2 year old didn't even whimper!! Painless and FINISHED!

Yes, I think so. I'd like to know more about the vaccine b/c I read somewhere that they won't finish the clinical trials on it. However, I think we need it for protection. I feel so sorry for you!

Wow...$100 for flu shot co-pays? Still, they are a necessity (I think) and you can't put a price on your children's health.

I took my little ones last week for their seasonal flu shot...and it was ugly. My 5-year old was hitting, kicking, screaming, hysterical. I was too by the end of it...I literally had sweat running down my face! My heart broke for her. (We had a healthcare issue a year ago that required lots of needles and she's never been the same...I'm praying that God will help to outgrow this and give me back my easy-going daughter!)

While I hate the thought of having to do the 2-shot H1N1 vaccination, I feel it's necessary. We had a 6-year old die here in KS (underlying medical condition, but still...).

Really enjoyed visting your blog today. I had seen you post no Pearls and Grace, and when I saw you We are that Family, I decided to check out your blog.

Glad you are meeting "people" in Tampa...it just takes some time!

Blessings to you from the Sunflower state,
Valerie

hey. no publix does not triple coupons. I used a manufacter. coupon from the newspaper, a store coupon (Publix) coupon they mailed me, and the item was bogof. So, it ends up being like having three coupons for one item. Now, for DIAPERS! Target sends me coupons for many things. Example of how to save on diapers at Publix-wait til they are on sale at Publix-usually will have $3.00 off in their ad, use the store coupon, a target coupon (usually around $2.00), a manufact. from the newspaper, AND an internet coupon! I bought a box of huggies reg. price ($19.99) for $9.00! soo worth the time!!
