When Auntie Lori arrived last Saturday she brought a doctor’s kit for Elizabeth to play with and it was a huge hit. Auntie Lori is a tremendously talented and accomplished medical doctor herself. She is training her nieces and nephews early and preparing them for medical careers! We told Elizabeth that she is “Doctor Pinke” when she plays. And she can pronounce that perfectly clear. And so now we have another Doctor Pinke in the family…
Side note…the above out fit is a custom made set made especially for Miss E by Mama Jane. It has socks and a head band to match also. When I was a young girl I had a majority of my clothes made by my mom from sweat suits to Sunday dresses to Christmas dresses to Homecoming and Prom dresses. Most recently she made me maternity clothes! As a young girl, I did not always think it was cool to have home made clothes but now I realize and appreciate how fun and special it is to have clothes from my mom that she has carefully chosen fabrics, buttons and taken time to sew! And I should have taken lessons from her. I have a feeling that our girls will have many out fits and dresses from Mama Jane in the upcoming years.
Auntie Lori was telling Elizabeth that when her pager went off she needed to call into the hospital. E promptly went and got her phone and called in, letting out a big sigh. Being Doctor Pinke is hard work.
Doctor Pinke made a house visit to check on Gpa Eldon. We will be playing Doctor Pinke for many years to come and maybe in the future there will another doctor in the family. Hunter thinks being a “scientist doctor” like Uncle David (pathology) or “looking at x-rays” like Dr. Casey is now going to do (radiology) is more his path in medicine than Dr. Lori’s of urology. Either way it is great for our kids to learn all about what it takes to become a doctor from Auntie Lori.
