After 2 years of silhouettes (and 2 years of 45-60 minute emla sessions), ds did a mio tonight. He said he wanted to try one, so we got our box out, blew the dust off, and opened it. Tried to follow the instructions to no avail, so, as usual, youtube to the rescue. I treid one on my belly first because my policy has always been that I won't make him do something I'm not willing to do first. I was ready for the pain, but it didn't come. Then it was his turn - yes, no, no, no, OK, let's get it over with. Easy peasy pumpkin pie! So far, so good. It's crazy that, even at 12, they can still seem like scared little boys sometimes . We'll see how it goes. It would be nice if set changes weren't an ordeal anymore . I hope you all have a great night!
