I took one sick kiddo to the clinic today. We hauled him into the bathroom and then wrung our hands about what to do next. As the nurse, clinic aide, and I stood outside the bathroom door and debated in hushed whispers about the seriousness of the situation I heard an odd noise from inside.
"Are you ok?" I asked the child.
"Yeah, I'm just lookin' at these cool pictures of the football men"
Never underestimate the power of distraction.
