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!
