Dr. Dove

Dove strolled into the living room the other night with her toy doctor kit and decided that Sunflower and I appeared gravely ill.  I fake-coughed like a pro, and Sunflower followed suit, practically hacking up a lung.

After listening to my heart with her stethoscope and confirming that I do have a “heart beep”, Dove handed me the little bottle of pretend medicine and instructed me to take some.  I tipped it back, pretended to swallow, and told her, “Wow, I feel better already, Doc.  You rock.”

Dove nodded as if to say “Yes, I know”, then turned her medical attention to Sunflower, who was practically giving herself a real sore throat by fake-coughing.  Dove held the stethoscope to Sunflower’s heart and leaned back as if mystified.

“Why don’t you try giving her the same medicine you gave me?” I suggested.

When that didn’t work, and Sunflower was still pretending to cough, I said, “Maybe she needs a shot.”

Dove sighed and shook her head.  “No…I need to cut her open.”

That stopped Sunflower’s cough dead in its tracks.  Remind me, if Dove ever acquires a medical degree, to never, ever make an appointment with her office!

    I love the “heart beep”!! It's just too cute!

  2. Thank Goodness you had access to such good medical care! Heart beeps are nothing to mess with. You would certainly be missed here.

  3. Not a heart beep! Good thing she caught it in time. Those kids are precious, and so very lucky to have you to remind them of it.

Don't be shy! Tell me how great I am. Or not. Share your feelings with the group.
