All The Ice Cream That You Want...

Wednesday, April 21, 2010

I'm not sure he's buying it or not, but that's what we have been telling Levi for the last couple of weeks. 
Poor guy has to have his tonsils and adenoids removed. 

But, as luck would have it we ran across a wonderful vintage resource at the
Rose Bowl Flea Market
a few weeks ago. 

It's a children's Wonder Book titled:
A Visit To The Hospital 

Levi can't get enough of it, he want's to be read this darling story over and over, several times a day...which is great because it's preparing him for "the operation". 

He especially loves the balloon part, which I don't think they actually do anymore, but that's OK 'cause it keeps him focused on a not so scary part of "the operation". 

Levi can't wait to get to the ice cream part and quotes the story back to me several times during our days together. 

I really enjoy the cute images in vintage kiddie books and the simple stories are really fun to read together.

These wonderful glimpses into our past are also a great resource for us gals who love to model these same ideals in our homes today. 

I love how our Heavenly Father let's us find little random things like this to make our way easier when it comes to the scary stuff of life.

I am so glad you stopped by my Blog and left a comment, that way I could find you again, and add your darling Blog to the ones I love! I am now a follower. I think your home should be featured in some magazines, it is just darling. You sure brought a smile to my face today. Wishing Levi a quick recovery!
Hugs, Diane

I remember this book well. I think it explains so perfectly and sensibly for children. I remember it at the time there was also a TV show on called ? Dr Marcus Welby MD. It would be interesting to see a flashback of that too.

What a wonderful find for you and your family! I'm sure his operation will go very smoothly!

Oh he's just the sweetest little guy, precious with that blonde hair. He'll be fine! I will definitely keep him in my prayers. I too remember that book. I love the Golden Book illustrations from back then. I'm looking for one called, "We help Mommy". Zootsuitmama

Awwww, poor Levi! What a cutie and what awesome timing to find this book! I'm glad he's enjoyed it and that it gave him some comfort. I hope his surgery goes smoothly!

What an amazing find! Hopefully it will help him relax and get through the experience as quickly and easily as possible!

What a serendipitous find! That's a great way to help him get ready. My kids love vintage childrens' books more than modern books- I think they can relate better!

Poor little guy. ;(
Well at least it will all be over with soon enough.
I too wish him well.

What an awesome book! Wonderful find. :)

Aww. That book is so cute. My twins are on the Autistic spectrum so their teachers send them home with all sorts of hygene books and manners books with wacky stick figures with freaky cut outs of their heads on the them- this is so much cuter.
