As the father of all girls I'm a little terrified of that moment in life when the girls start playing "doctor". I don't think I need to expound much more on what that game is or why it may have me concerned. But I'm suddenly even more concerned that maybe they'll actually one day grow up to be real doctors. Yes, I want them to be as successful as they possibly can be in life, but based on observations yesterday I'm a little worried about malpractice suits. After getting Rosaline up from her afternoon nap I walked into the girls room and found them play surgery - although they don't know that word yet so that's not what they were calling it - with their baby dolls and a Handy Manny tool set. Apparently when you're sick it's a screw driver to the nose and if that doesn't work a swift couple of strikes with a hammer on your temple ought to do the trick. "All better!" Genevieve was fixing an "owie" with a hand saw and Arianna felt the pliers were good tool for making her babies "butt feel better." I'm not sure if she was constipated or suffering from hemorrhoids but, whatever it was, it must have been serious. Note to all readers, if in 25 years or so you find yourself scheduling an appointment with a Dr. Kopp. ... you might want to seek treatment elsewhere. That is, of course, unless you think a pipe wrench is useful in eye surgery.
