Dr. Kylie

Kylie is probably the only 3 year old I know that would smile throughout the process of having to get IV fluids at the hospital.  The trick was all in the outfit!  The nurses gave her a pair of children’s hospital pajamas to wear, which apparently resembled doctors scrubs to Kylie.  She was stoked!  When asked what she wants to be when she grows up, Kylie will usually say a doctor.  She has her own doctor kit at home and practices on any willing {and sometimes unwilling} “patients” around.  She knows the names of most of the equipment, and more specifically, how they work and what they’re used for.  The I.V. was a new one for her though, which was probably why she seemed so happy considering the circumstances.   I hope that she will always find joy in learning new things, even when the lesson, like this one, may be a painful one.  Don’t feel bad, I had to take notes on that lesson too.
