Jemma and I both enjoy sewing and crafting activities. Today we sat in her bed like this for a few hours. She sewed her pencil holder kit together, I knitted and she talked a lot. It's funny, because Jemma doesn't talk much to people here in the hospital, or to anyone she doesn't know very well. She misses her siblings and has a lot on her mind. You may think she is thinking about being in the hospital, but that is really what the adults are thinking about. Jemma is thinking about sending her brother junk email, wondering if her sister will like her pencil case because it is pink and girly, confirming that 9+9 is indeed 18, asking how the doctors know how to put tubes into hearts, and wondering which dress looks the most like one Fancy Nancy would wear. Oh to have the mind of a 5 year old!
Although the kits are great, chatting with your child is extra special.
