The moment we have been waiting for….vaccines for kids! While those of us with kids still under five move closer to the finish line, parents and teachers can do a happy dance knowing that elementary ages are finally eligible. As a mom with a 4th grader and a partner of an elementary P.E. teacher, we are exhaling a bit and feeling hopeful knowing that there is another level of safety getting tightened up on this pandemic journey.
Guess who is NOT doing a happy dance. The kids! Just like with their round of shots through the years, they dread that larger-than-life needle.
