Albany Parking Tix Erased for Vaccinated Big Boys & Girls
I have a son who will be 6-years-old in July.  When he goes to the doctor, dentist or anything sterile or medical, and he behaves like a "big boy", he walks out with all sorts of treats and sometimes even prizes.  Lollipops, fake tattoos, stickers, bubble gum, blinky thin…
