I still remember the time when I was 5 years old and my mom made me a nurse for a fancy dress competition in school. It was as simple as wearing a plain white shirt with a white skirt and smart ballerinas. I was so excited! She made a beautiful white nurse hat for me that looked perfect and gave me a few lines to speak. I was more than elated to do it. I held my favorite doll that I had named “Mona” and acted as though she was ill and was my patient. I had a syringe in hand (of course without the needle) and pricked through my doll to give her some rest and medication along with the lines I had mugged up. I won the 2nd price and it made a beautiful childhood memory for me that I will cherish always.
