Inquiring Minds

Jordan has always been a very curious child. “Why, Momma?” “How do they do that?” “What does this mean?” Thankfully, my grandma is really good at buying her Christmas presents that engage her and keep her curiosity sparked. 


Yesterday, we pulled the microscope set that she bought Jordan a few Christmases ago down so she could play with it. Jordan wanted to look at her own hair, water from our ditch, and blood. She asked everyone if she could have some blood, but they all turned her down.


Then she turned her big brown eyes on me and begged. I couldn’t say no. After all, she “needs it so she can get ready to be a doctor”. I poked my finger and dropped a bit of blood on a slide. She was completely fascinated. I wouldn’t be surprised at all if she turns out to be a doctor. She’s been declaring that she’s going to be a pediatrician since she could talk.

Thank You copy

Awww, that's sweet you did that for her! When I was a kid I had a microscope too & my mom bought these cases that came with slides in them & they had all sorts of things, like animal cells/blood, plants, etc. You should look into getting her some slides!
