To be completely honest, Roo wasn't as excited as I was. We've had several conversations about what she wants to be when she grows up, and becoming a doctor was always bottom of her list. Despite this, she did enjoy donning on scrubs and hair nets, conducting a "surgery" on Mr. Smokes-too-much in an operating theatre, bandaging a fellow mini-doctor, as well as caring for a baby in a nursing room.
Red was a bit too young for the programme which catered to 5 to 12 year olds, but she was shamelessly walking around like she owned the place anyway. Split between chasing after my precocious 2 year old, and following the adventures of my engaged 6 year old, I'd managed to take some some snaps of both their stories. Enjoy!

|"What's the big fuss about playing Doctor? Playing patient is much more fun!" :)|
|Looking busy and ready for her shift! (Managed to swipe a Doctor's gown for Red!)|
Both my doctors look like they'd already done a red-eye shift. :) Loving the smiles and the messy hair.

On the way, I asked Roo if she's inspired to become a doctor. The answer was still "no," though she's happy to pretend to be one. Based on the intent look in Red's eyes, I think the programme worked on her though. We might have a Dr. Red in the future.
