Whenever we go to Toys R Us, my husband and I always gaze wistfully at the toys for older kids. We can't wait until Melly is old enough that we can buy her some awesome toys for us to play with. There's only so much fun we can have with a rattle.
On our latest trip there, I was practically slobbering over a toy doctor's kit. And it wasn't just a doctor's kit... it was a doctor's kit for GIRLS! Now you ask, what made this kit specifically for girls? Why, it was PINK, of course. There was a little pink stethoscope, a little pink BP cuff, a little pink syringe, a little pink otoscope, and a little pink thermometer. Unfortunately, it was for ages 3 and up. (Although the "and up" probably didn't go all the way up to 30 years old.)
Me: "And look! It comes with a little pink doctor's bag!!!"
Husband: "Do you want to buy this for Melly or for you?"
Me: "Ooh, there's a pink penlight too! Do you think it actually shines light?"
Husband: "You know, you have real versions of all this doctor's equipment."
Me: "Yes, but mine isn't pink."
Also, I'm missing my otoscope. Tell me, how hilarious would it be if I were examining a patient's ear and I pulled out that little pink otoscope? Answer: very.
