Scratchy Faces

Yesterday, I glanced over at my son's hand and noticed he had faces drawn all over it. 

"Bubba, why did you draw faces on your hand?" I asked.

He came over and sat next to me. Then he pointed at one of the marks on his hand. "That's a scratch, Mama. I thought it looked like a winking eye, so I drew the rest of the face around it." He pointed at another one. "See. Here's a scratch that looks like a smile. So I made eyeballs and a nose to go with it." 

"Nice," I said. "So, do your scratch faces make you feel better?"

He nodded. "Scratchy faces work way better than Band-Aids!"

So, ladies and gentlemen, next time you have a boo boo, draw a smiley face around it. It'll make it all better!

  2. So long as it isn't bleeding, the air is good for the wound, so the scratchy face... perfect solution!

  17. Oh man, I've got quite the canvas then. I had a little biking accident yesterday that left my calf all scraped up. But any idea to keep kids from going through an entire Band-aide box in a week is a good one.

    1. Sorry about your biking accident. Hopefully drawing smiley faces around your boo boos will make you feel better.
