Background: Matt is reading Narnia to Ezekiel and Naomi.
My birthday present from my parents arrived today. It was (suprise!) just what I wanted: a Littman pediatric stethoscope. Naomi was very interested in it (possibly because it is pink) and I popped out her hearing aids and showed her how she could listen to her own heart.
“Do you hear that, Naomi? That’s the sound your heart makes.”
Her eyes got wide. Then she paused, looked at the stethoscope, and asked, “Mommy, how could Polly and Digory hear their own hearts thumping if they didn’t have one of these?”
