This week's question:

What's the funniest thing a kid has said to you recently?

“I had a 4-year-old patient who was playing with a stuffed animal when I walked into his room. I asked what he had – his response was ‘ringworm.’ ”
Heidi McNeely, RN 
Children’s Hospital of Denver

“We used to have an 8-year-old patient on the floor who always wanted to wear tons of clothes,” said Jennifer Mooney, RN. “”He would always say: ‘Why can’t I wear three shirts and four pairs of pants?’ We always had to negotiate with him and work him down to just two shirts, one pair of pants and two pairs of socks – he was a really funny kid.”
