Band Aid Boy

When I walked into the bathroom, yesterday, I saw a box of band aids open, and almost every band aid had been opened and tossed on the counter.  There had to be at least fifty band aids and wrappers lying there.  I knew who the culprit was.  "Bubba," I called.  "Come here!"

He came, and I pointed at the mess.  "What's this?"  I asked.

"I needed a band aid," he said.

"A band aid?  It looks like you needed about a hundred of them.  Why did you open every single band aid that was in the box?"

He showed me his finger which had three band aids on it.  "I got a really bad paper cut, and none of those other band aids worked."

Oy!

    1. That's exactly what he's going to do if he does it, again.

  3. Haha, I understand, sometimes they just don't stick right, he needs them placed perfectly. ;)

  4. Does he need the character Band-Aids?
    I have to have Hello Kitty for her, and spiderman for him.

    1. We used to do Spongebob, but now he uses the plain, boring kind.

  5. I know where you're coming from! My wee one needs plasters (as we call them) for everything - scrapes etc. I try telling her, if you're not bleeding, you don't need one!

    1. He doesn't seem to be complaining about it, so I'd say those band aids did the trick.

    1. Disney Princess band aids are magical. They make cuts go away ten times faster than regular band aids.

  9. You could call this story, Bubba's Band Aids.

  10. If at first you don't succeed, open more bandaids

  11. I am beginning to see Bubba as the new Calvin (as in Calvin and Hobbes) :)

    1. I could probably do a regular comic feature with him.

  12. It's so hard to find just the right band aids when you have a boo boo.

  13. So he kept on placing band aids on his finger until there was no more blood. That's smart.

    1. I think his cut is fine, now. But yes, paper cuts are a pain!

  16. No, Bubba. Cut it out. (That's kind of punny.)

    Love,

  17. At least the Band-Aids were unused! I've seen kids take their used Band-Aids off and leave them wherever they drop.

    1. Unfortunately, my son is guilty of that. (But not outside of the house.)
