19 October 2010 Maze

Tuesday, October 19th, 2010

12 October 2010 Flu Jab

Tuesday, October 12th, 2010

After Sam got her “flu jab” at the doctor’s, it was the Gruffalo’s turn. Both of them got stickers for being good. And I can’t decide if “jab” sounds nicer than “shot.” Would you rather be jabbed or shot?
