Playing at being doctors


Like I had said earlier, the boys are into pretend play. Yesterday I was watching them play in their room with their doctor’ s set and it was amazing to see how much they had internalized from all the visits to their doctor. They had all the instruments out and sid was wearing a stethoscope around his neck. Nish showed him his foot and told him he had a boo boo there. Sid  proceeded to examine him with the stethoscope and then told him he would need an injection. He assured his brother that it would not hurt .. just a little poke he said. He rubbed his brother’s thigh and gave him a fake jab. Nish asked for a kiss to feel better but sid  said he would give him a sticker and some chocolate.

I was blown away by the whole exchange


About myfourboysandme

Mom - a word that defines me... I smell of oats, johnson's and home baked cookies I am pink, purple, green and orange and so is the floor my kids color on. Flour on my clothes and a brush in my pocket, my glasses bent out of shape and smudged with tiny fingerprints. I can't remember the date but i know almost 40 pictures books by heart. I wake up humming 'wheels on the bus'and i talk with my fingers and eyes and mouth. My bag carries band aids, napkins, wipes, crayons, papers, candy and sometimes my wallet. I know all the parks and very few of the restaurants in my neighborhood. Most of my shopping is diapers, books and paints My phd certificate lies in a roll, the frame now contains an abstract work of art by two year olds and i am prouder of that piece of paper. mom - a word that defines me!
