Weekends Are For Kids

Band-aids. I can’t remember if it was like this when I was a kid, but we go through band-aids by the stinkin’ gross at our house.

Apparently, both our children are under the delusion that a band-aid makes it feel better.

I swear last week Joshua looked like he was being held together with the stupid things.

As I type this, there are 6 band-aids being worn by out 2 children.

I am, as of this moment, instituting a “no blood, no band-aid” policy. Otherwise, I’m going to have to declare bankruptcy.

    Ha! I have the same policy. Our oldest LOVES them and always has (hence the policy). Our youngest screams bloody murder if you attempt to put one on her. She finally tolerated one for the first time last week.

    On the other hand, they make *awesome* stocking stuffers. A whole box of band-aids to use however they want! Whee!

    You know we can be your band-aid supplier right?! My mom works for J&J and we get them for $1.00 a box. Seriously. Let me know and we’ll drop them off at Vandy for you. We can get Barbie, Care Bears, Dora, Scoobie Doo, Spongebob, and Hello Kitty. 🙂

    That’s so funny because it’s so true. I love it when one kid needs a band-aid and the other kid starts looking all over his body trying to find a dot of injury.

    I don’t know if you remember Breezy’s complete disgust of all things sticky, but he especially hates Band-Aids. He has had to get over that slightly with kids, but I do most of the “patching up.” I’ve found that with our kids, a Band-Aid usually quiets the whining of a minor owie, but I know we spend a good chunk of $$ on those silly things!
