I'm Stuck On Band-Aid

It appears that I need to purchase stock in Band-Aids. Little Red has just discovered that they cure all ailments. All of a sudden my tough lil cookie is a whining mama's boy. Every bump, scratch and bruise needs a band aid and a kiss. Even pizza sauce spots feel better after being bandaged, duh! Last night he had a total of 17 boo-boos. We put band aids on every last one of them- mostly cuz I'm a sucker and I hate listening to him cry. Call me weak if you want, but the cuteness is killer. I even had to cut some jumbo size ones into smaller pieces when we ran out of regular size. After a while he would tear off the band aid and proclaim, "Aw Bettah!" So stinkin cute.

LR only actually has one injury that is for real. It was a garbage can incident that resulted in much crying and a little blood. Yesterday, he told his teacher that it was hurting so bad he was afraid it would fall off if he didn't get a band aid. She got him one stat and laughed hysterically as she told me the tale- it appears she is a sucker for the cute factor, too. He is only a tad dramatic. I just don't know where he gets it.

Lord help us if he discovers band aids with characters...I'm just thankful that I can cure his ailments with a box(or 2) of band aids and some lovin'. I dread the day that I can't make it all better with a kiss and a band aid.

This is all SO true and mine HAVE discovered the character bandaids...but it's funny b/c they make them feel even more betta!

Funny how these things work.

Now if i could just get some character Horton's or Power Rangers and put them on their veggies, maybe that would make THEM all betta...hmmm...I may be on to something here.

Love it!! My kids are the same way! But not just any band-aid will do, thanks to their daddy and his need to make all things 'cool'! So Spiderman and My Little Pony it is!
