New back

Auntie Janice's back hasn't healed as quickly as everyone would like.  In fact, she often comes home from work very tired and obviously in pain.

 

When this happens, Elizabeth almost always follows the below script verbatim, skipping even a "hello":

 

"Auntie Janice, why your back sore?"

"Because I broke it"

"Why you broke your back?"

"I didn't mean to, it was an accident"

"Maybe you need new one"

 

Elizabeth likes to help Auntie Janice with her physio exercises, which we encourage. Sometimes Elizabeth tries to get out of things by telling us that her back is too sore, which we don't...

 

We can't decide whether new obsession with playing "surgery" is related or not, but Elizabeth has declared her toy spatula to be her "scapel", her duck to be "medicine" and loose costume jewelry to be "needles". So far I've had both arms amputated, Daddy lost his feet and Teddy had stomach surgery. Auntie Janice says she's waiting for Elizabeth to gain more experience before letting her operate on her back though...

Kids often like to play doctor, but surgeon? I could show real life examples but she probably should be a year or two older...

Cute! I loved playing doctor when I was little, and I love playing it now with Ali!
