things i heard my 4 year old edition

Laine is a character....sometimes more than others. In no particular order these are actual conversations or comments made by my daughter last week while in the hospital.

1) Jeff- "I am bringing Paige over in the morning to visit for a while."
Jen- "Oh good, maybe if all the doctors make rounds before she comes I could take her to the museum in the afternoon for a while"
Laine- "whoa, whoa, whoa" (with her arms held up like stop).

2) "Dad, you have 2 mustaches" (coming out of sedation)

3) "Mom, you have 2 heads" (coming out of sedation)

4) "I just don't understand all this" (after being poked for IV start and lab draws)

5) "I need a bandaid....and hurry it up" (while the nurse had left the room to get one and was still in the doorway of her room)

6) "You just made me throw up in my mouth a little bit" (after the surgery resident made her sit up in bed at 530 in the morning to examine her leg the day of surgery)

7) "I think it is time to head back up to the room....I am not going to be brave today" (I had told Laine in her room that she was going for a ride and doctors were going to help her leg heal, and she might be scared but that she would need to be brave....her comment was in the pre-op room)

awww. that last one made me cry.

there is no bandaid for your heart when your kids hurt.

i say hospitals should be off limits for kids, okay? seriously…

i can only imagine your medical bills. yikes.

i'm hoping that 2010 is a year where you can frolic in museums and not have to come out of sedation and there will be no IV pokes.
that laine, she's wise beyond her years…

I like your new scrapbook pages, by the way! Very creative! You are making me want to dig my stuff out of the basement, lol!
