31 for 21 - More First Aid Practice
K has a fascination with doctors & playing doctor which is pretty funny seeing as she is a little unsure about going sometimes. We try to treat most minor problems naturally at home & she is healthy so doesn't have to go to a doctor often - just the odd check up which now amount to only 2 or 3 per year. She has been to the dentist more often lately though & thinks he is the coolest guy she knows! I do have to insert a little brag here. Last month she had a routine blood draw & although she was a little nervous, she did great they managed to draw enough blood on the first try! She has always been tough to get blood from & usually it involves a couple hours of waiting & 2 tries before eventually dragging the wonderful doctor who used to work in a NICU out of his crowded waiting room to do it.
Anyways, K loves all things doctor & has for a while - check out this post for some cute pics of her practicing CPR. Last week she found her older sister JC's manual from a recent first aid course & reads it & looks at the pics every chance she gets. It is her most read book of the week with only the Sears Wish book coming in at a close behind.
K was given this first aid kit & was thrilled from the moment she saw it. Of course she had to be the doctor so she dressed up in her housecoat & told me that "The doctor would be with me in a moment. " She cracks me up! Where does she get this stuff from?
She then proceeded to empty out & inspect everything inside.
Then she went in search of a patient.
............& of course I needed a few bandages on my owies.
Next it was her turn.
Afterwards when I had to go make supper & she decided to fix her dolls. She was so comforting to her patients & I had to giggle when she told them "Come back again if you don't feel better soon".
