Playing doctors and patients

I wrote that my 7-year-old son has the flu in yesterday's post.

He had slept all day yesterday.

I was sorry for my 5-year-old daughter because I couldn't go out with her anywhere.

But she was very kind to her brother.

When he woke up, she went to him and rang the bell and sang a song.

"Wear the mask and be quiet!"

I warned her.

She was about to cry and said,

"I only want to encourage him..."

"Oh, I am sorry my angel. What a kind sister you are!"

She smiled at me and started singing a Christmas song.

"Santa Claus already came to our house last month, right?"

My son smiled at her and me.

I told him about one of today's fun events.

"When you were sleeping, your sister and I played a doctor and a patient.

 It was so interesting!

 At first, she wanted me to play a patient.

 I said,  ' I have a sore throat.'

 Then she said, ' So I will give you some medicine!"

 I was so surprised and asked her, ' You have not examined me yet, Doctor! I think you can't give me medicine yet.'

 She smiled at me and said, 'Oh, sorry. Open your mouth! Oh-oh, your throat is red. I will give you a shot!'

 She gave a shot on my back of the hand.

 'There?? We usually receive a shot in the arm!'

'Oh, I mistook it. I am sorry...'

'Doctor! Don't get absorbed watching TV while examining me!'

 She started watching Draemon on TV while she is examining me.

 She is funny, isn't she?"

My son laughed to hear that.

I continued talking to him.

"After that, we exchanged the roles, I played as a doctor and she played as a patient.

 I asked her, 'What happened?'

 She answered, 'I have a sore throat.'

 I thought she imitates you because she went to the clinic with you this morning and she saw you were examined by a doctor.

 I asked her, 'When did it start aching?'

 She said, 'Since tomorrow!' "

We laughed to hear her funny answer.

My son said:

"She might come from the future using time machine!"

"It's interesting! But... it is as if she will have a sore throat tomorrow! Oh, no! Don't jinx me! "

We laughed together.

I was relieved that I could see his smile.

I was also glad to see my daughter's kindness.

She said:

"I am bored because my brother is sick. I hope he will get well soon!"

I am glad that to see they are close siblings.


When I took a bath with my daughter, she behaved like a baby.

She wanted me to help her with everything.

I thought that she was lonely and wanted to monopolize me because I needed to take care of my son and couldn't play with her very much.

Maybe it was a toddler regression.

I accepted all of her emotional dependence and I hugged her saying,

"I was glad because you were very kind to your brother. What a kind girl! I love you!"

  1. Hello Kumi-san,

    Glad to see your son is quickly recovering. Maybe your daughter would like a TV show called Dr Who which is about a man who travels in a time machine.

    Here are some of the issues I found while reading the article:

    1. Hello Terry!
      Thank you for your help.
      I have still a lot of mistakes, especially related to the prepositions.
      Those are difficult for me, but I try my best.
      Thank you so much!
