“Boing-Boing” Curls Save the Day

Beauty in the day: she came into the clinic this afternoon, this little big girl. I call her that because she was one of the olders, preparing to start 4th grade, but still just a little girl.
“My tummy hurts, and I am so sleepy,” she complained quietly. I checked her temp: no fever. She had some water, and I let her lie down for a while. Eventually, as it was nearing the end of the day, I decided it was time for her to try going back to class. I told her the usual stuff – it’s way less boring in class than here, I’ll bet your friends are wondering what happened to you, I’d hate for you to miss the end of he day – you know, the usual stuff. She was agreeable, but still a little “low”, and so I did what any Office Manager of an elementary summer school would do: I walked behind her a few steps and gushed about her “very curly curls! I just want to ‘boing’ them all the way back to your class!” She giggled a little at that, and then skipped a little out the door.
