Paging Dr Lil-lil

My three-year-old is obsessed with her body and how it works. It started off as endearing, now it's starting to get a little tough as my kid-friendly answers to her 'Why?' aren't cutting it. Let's face it, I don't have answers to a lot of her questions.

Why do I have knee caps? What don't my elbows have caps? How does the blood go round my body? Why does blood go round your body? How do my brains think? Why do we need bones?

I have been resorting to YouTube, unearthing lots of educational videos of the circulatory system and the digestive system. How much she understands, who knows, but she seems fascinated.

She's always liked going to the doctor. The day she had to have a blood test, I completely freaked out, Lil-lil on the other hand asked if she could do it again the next day! The day she spent accompanying her sister to the hospital was one of her favourites, getting to watch the ambulances come and go from emergency was the peak of excitement. She decided there and then that she wanted to be an ambulance driver, getting to treat patients and drive a car with flashing lights – it doesn't get any better for her.

I just hope her questions don't get much more difficult or I may have to go and get a medical degree.


  1. Those are some serious q's for a three yo! I dont think my three yo even knows what a brain, or elbows are lol

  2. Corinne! Just another freaky FRiday moment...Daisy is OBSESSED with the body at the moment and needs to be told constantly how it works. What's inside my head, her knee, Harper's is constant AND endless. You Tube videos? BRILLIANT. No guesses to what she will be doing this afternoon...snap x
