So here I am in Denver with the sole task of spending five days with three-year-old granddaughter Cassidy Anderson while her parents are on a business trip in Florida. Once all the necessary duties are accomplished—getting dressed, eating breakfast—the days are ours to do with as we choose. Today, besides a library/grocery outing, we passed most of our waking hours playing doctor. You know the routine…
First you call the patients to come in.
Then you check the patients in by name.
They all get saline nose drops.
Then the other doctor checks in patients.
Ten-week-old Duke waits his turn.
This has been a Saturday quite unlike most Saturdays of my life. And I can’t think of anything I’d rather be doing than pretending to take a stuffed animal’s temperature assisted by my delightful granddaughter.
