Dressing Up for the Doctor's Office

Lil Tip: Dressing Up in Scrubs

Since I've been spending my fair share of time in doctor's offices lately, I've picked up a few parenting tips. The other day, I saw a cute little girl walk into the pediatrician's waiting room all dressed up in scrubs. As she chatted with my wee one, I was able to ask her mother about her daughter's ensemble.

Like many youngsters, her daughter hated visiting the doctor for fear of shots. To help her overcome her fear, the smart mama bought the girl some scrubs of her own. Now when she has an appointment, she gets to play doctor with the pros and has a sense of camaraderie with them instead of animosity.

And, they make great pajamas or costumes for the Halloween holiday.

I used to work in a medical lab and wore scrubs to work every night (I worked grave-yard) and it's the best thing ever. No scrambling through your closet trying to find something to wear and they're sooo comfy. I wish I could wear them now, but I work in an office and I don't think they'd like that.

I'd love some scrubs of my own! I know of a place where you can get them with your school's logo. They have them for kids too.

Hee, that's a good idea. I was actually planning to buy my son some scrubs, too, but mainly because my husband is a doctor and I thought it would just be cute. Plus, they are super comfy!
