We wish we could give the bambino treats after he bravely faces something difficult, like yesterday's two month vaccines.
Of course, there really aren't any treats for infants. He can't spend extra time playing soccer, call his best friend to meet up, or have ice cream. My husband said with a smile that we should keep a list of all the treats we owe him. Then, later, we can say, "this ice cream cone is for that first time your blood was drawn." With all the crying and noisy, uncomfortable sleep, it feels like we owe him an entire gelateria.
For now, he gets all the attention he wants and deserves. Like always.
