Josie asked for (and received, obviously) a Doctor's Kit for Christmas. This is no ordinary Doctor's Kit, though - this one is the DELUX Doctor's Kit and after Josie finished setting it up, her room was transformed into a doctor's office.
Josie opened her clinic up for patients on Saturday.
She was ready for all contingencies: wound care, broken bones and general illness.
She even had stickers to give out to young patients who behaved themselves.
My favorite moment was when Dr. Josephine took a phone call from another doctor who needed advice (her friend Eva who was calling to find out what time we were picking her up that afternoon so she could watch Josie play hockey).
I'll spare you the photos of Gordy getting his examination. We had a slow start to our morning and he would rather not have the world see what he looks like in his pajamas.
For a long time, Josie wanted to be a doctor when she grew up, but last winter, Henry split open his knee in a hockey game and had to have stitches and Josie went with Henry when he had his stitches removed. There was blood and some nasty-looking gore and Josie almost fainted in the exam room. Since then, Josie has been expressing more interest in becoming an interior designer. We'll see, I suppose. In the meantime, she's still practicing her non-bloody medical skills.
