Annie loves dressing up and pretend play so when she got a new nurse outfit she was over the moon. She spent the whole day making everyone feel better and even asked me to help her practice her best ‘nurse faces’!
I shouted out suggestions and then she would pull the face she thought best suited the situation or phrase
A fairly patronising face that suggests nurse Annie thinks you brought your illness upon yourself
A look of utter disgust, this nurse would totally make you clean up your own sick or get someone else to do it!
A look of happiness, combined with a knowing smile, she obviously thinks that twin babies are double trouble.
A look that basically says, ‘hooray, now buzz off, I’m finally free of you and your germs!’
We got the dressing up as part of a fantastic set from Me and My World who sell a wide variety of creative learning activity packs. There was also a dr and nurse hand puppet and fab Usbourne sticker book about hospital in the kit, presented in a gorgeous cloth bag.
Annie changes her mind daily as to what she’d like to be when she’s older, I think she’s proven that should she want to be a slightly patronising nurse, she has all the facial expressions she’d ever need!
