(Disclaimer: I realize these are supposed to be weekly posts, per the title. But I got a late start, so I’m catching up. This one gets me current through the end of January, which is fine with me)
My girls are quite healthy. Sickness is rare in our home. *excuse me while I go find some wood to knock on*
I know how lucky we are.
Part of the reason they don’t generally get the normal colds, coughs, etc. is because I’m a total freak when it comes to hand sanitizer. There are easily four bottles in my purse on any given day.
But we’re not always immune when the stomach bug makes its rounds. Such was the case for my older daughter last week.
Luckily it didn’t last for long, and so as soon as she started to feel better, her trusty sidekick was right there with her “Doc McStuffins” tools to help fix her up and make her feel better. Have you seen this adorable character from the Disney Channel? So cute – and it’s such a good show. It usually has a good story, a nice lesson and a cute little song. I even watch it sometimes when no one under the age of 9 is home. Well that’s not weird at all, right?
Anyway, she’s got the whole doctor bag going on. And she can tell you the names of all her tools in her little two year old voice. Otoscope. Stethoscope. Bandaid. Needle for a shot.
She was even Doc McStuffins for Halloween.
If one of us isn’t feeling well, we can always count on our little Doc McStuffins to sing some songs and help us feel better.
