Our three oldest children, ages 5, 3, 2, were playing in the living room unsupervised. I was in the kitchen, and overhearing them playing, I just had to go in and see exactly what they were doing.
I walked in to discover Emmaline (age 2) lying on the coffee table with a blanket draped over her. I learned from Matthew that he was performing a hip surgery on Emmaline while Andrew was administering medicine with an empty roll of toilet paper over her mouth. It was such a hilarious sight that I snapped several pictures just to document this “medical” feat.
As many of our readers know, Emmaline underwent REAL surgeries last year to correct her dislocated hips. Naturally, Matthew still remembered these — she’s only recently really begun to walk and run normally — and thus re-enacted the whole surgery.
