Adventures in Roleplay

Yesterday Kyra asked me if I would play doctor with her. Delighted that she asked me to do anything besides playing princess/fairy godmother/mad sister, I agreed to go along for the ride. Here's how the roleplay occured:

We began by Kyra laying down on the coffee table (the operating table, or automechanic shop when we are fixing cars).
Mom: What seems to be the problem maam?
Kyra: I was shot in the head.
Mom: (now a bit concerned) What do you mean?
Kyra: Katie poked me with her finger on my nose.
Mom: Okay (phew, that sounds better). You were poked in the head then.

(I proceeded to finish the exam and then it was my turn).
Mom: Help me doctor, I feel so sick and I don't know what the problem is.
Kyra: Okay lady, we'll fix you up. First we have to take your beat heart (she proceeds to listen). Oh, this isn't good. Your beat heart is 30 seconds. I'm afraid you are very sick.
Mom: Oh no, can you fix me?
Kyra: No. I'm sorry, I can't find my shot to give you.
Mom: What about some medicine?
Kyra: I'm sorry, I don't have medicine either.
Mom: You don't have ANY medicine? (come on here, your mother is sick!)
Kyra: Oh, I forgot I do have this horse medicine! I can give you that.
(So it goes that her own mother had to be given My Little Pony medicine. I think I'll stick to going to my own doctor when I really get sick.)

Those are precious (and funny) stories. Aren't you so excited to be recording these "events" that we'll soon forget about in the busyness of everyday life? I can't wait to someday show the girls all the silliness (and what they put us through)! LOL!

Ha! Isn't it funny what comes out of their little brains sometimes? You gotta love some of the stuff they come up with - and it looks like Kyra has an amazing imagination!
