Playing doctor

Posted on June 9, 2010 by

What  could be more fun or delightful on a cool June morning than being administered to medically by a  4- year-old and her 2-year-old assistant? i It happened to me this morning when Dr. Molly and Physician’s Assistant Claire stopped by before school. Molly, toting her medical kit, applied bandages and ointment, cut tape for a first aid application and also took care of her play cat, proclaiming “I want to be a vet.” Claire, in all her adorable “me-too” way, helped and participated fully. Molly’s kind, concerned bedside manner was duly noted and she beamed when I told her she’d make a good doctor since she knew how to treat her patients. Medical school in 20 years? Who knows, but it was a golden moment in in these golden days with the grandkids. What’s your favorite grandkid playtime tale?
