Today Charlotte is home.
Or at least feverish, which is mostly sick. She said she went to the office yesterday because she felt hot when everyone else was cold but she had “no fever” so they sent her back to class. Funny, cause when she got home she was burning up and took a two hour nap. She still felt bad this morning so I kept her home, one of the privileges of a work at home parent, and she must be getting back to her normal annoying self, because she is now sitting in the living room playing some sort of Xbox game that I know nothing about.
Now I hate when I have a sick kid. A hurt kid. A kid that doesn’t even feel slightly well. It makes me feel all sorts of mom guilt. I hate not being able to fix it and the look they get when they are pathetically curled up in a ball on the couch or asking if they can “sleep with you”. But I can give you a little secret…Band-Aids make everything feel better.
Even a fever…
Band-Aids have this unique power to make kids feel like things are…well…better.
So I covered Charlotte in them today.
Which was all fun and games till we took them off….
So here are a few tips to remove Band-Aids a little more painlessly than I did…(which was the rip it off method..hahahhahaa)
And with school starting, aside from the sickness and fevers you will probably be dealing with at some point, there will also be cuts, scrapes, scratches and bruises, so keep your first aid kit full of Neosporin and Band-Aids for your little one!
If you like these, I used Muppets.
Cause Muppets are awesome.
BAND-AID® Brand Adhesive Bandages featuring The Muppets. These bandages feature your favorite Muppets characters in their usual wacky and wild poses! They are available on Amazon.com and at mass retailers with a suggested retail price of $2.99.
NEOSPORIN® First Aid Antibiotic Ointment. NEOSPORIN® heals wounds two days faster and provides long-lasting infection protection to help minimize the appearance of scars from cuts and scrapes. Available at mass retailers with a suggested retail price of $8.99
