One of my girls' favorite TV shows is Disney Junior's "Doc McStuffins". It's a show I even enjoy because it's just a cute show of a little girl pretending to be a doctor with her animals. They sing fun songs and it's just a fun show.
My girls love to pretend they are doctors as well. Thankfully besides Harper's birth and a couple of ear infections (and Hollis' recent lump issue) - my girls have always been relatively healthy. We have managed to escape (I'm knocking on wood) really ever being sick. Harper and Hollis both love to go to the doctor for well visits and the occasional check up. It probably has a lot to do with the fact that our pediatrician is nice and they usually leave with a sucker and a sticker.
I try to talk to my girls about any doctor visits that we have to help them not be afraid and understand what might happen like shots or even getting their temperature taken. Harper is having her adenoids and tonsils removed soon and we haven't told her yet because we don't want her to worry but we will talk to her the night before and help her to understand. It will help that she can eat all the ice cream she wants.
I catch my girls playing doctor and dentist a lot with their animals. They love to take turns being the doctor and the patient. I would love if one of my girls actually grew up to be a doctor or a nurse!
We stay healthy mostly by washing our hands a lot with antibiotic soap, taking vitamins, and trying to eat "somewhat" healthy and resting. We are on the go a lot and go to preschool and church so there is only so much we can do to prepare for germs we encounter.
We are so excited that Doc McStuffins Season 2 is coming out on September 6 with all new episodes on Fridays! We will be setting our DVR!!!!
