Quote du jour

"Mommy, I'm sure I'm bleeding somewhere on my body."

This from my 4yo daughter as she stripped off all her clothes in the middle of the kitchen last night while I cooked dinner.

She's addicted to Band-Aids.

My 3 y o is a Band Aid addict two, has been for at least a year...she is constantly on the search for what she calls "tiny cuts" that might require Band Aid.
So maybe this hypochondric tendencies are common for that age? :-)

YES! The tiny cuts that hurt like hell until the band-aid goes on.

I think it's common, and it cracks me up. Her personal record is about 12 band-aids at one time. Mosquito bites, don'tcha know?

How did you reply? "You want a band-aid? Keep distracting mommy while she's making dinner and you'll NEED a band-aid," or something a little more gentle?

Teasing, of course! Just let her wear one on her left cheek for show, like Nelly :~D

Trina's comment made me giggle. When my twins were at that stage, I had boxes and boxes of all the cute styles. It can start adding up though!:-)

T, I laughed of course! She did end up finding a "paper cut" on a finger and a tiny red dot on her toe.

Christina, yes. We have Dragon Tales, Dora, Sesame Street, Scooby Doo, Winnie the Poo and probably some others. I keep thinking if I got rid of all the fun ones, she might not want them so much...but she does seem to enjoy it and she knows how to put them on herself too, so it's no big deal for me. I just pick up a new box about every other Target trip.
