Anyone who deals with kids knows that there's something magical about a band-aid. For Pipsqueak, they are less for blood wipe up and more fashion accessories. Stink has gotten a bit more discerning, but he still falls prey to the cure-all aspect of them. Last week he mended a rubber chicken's neck at Grandma Stella's. This fall the preschool mascot, a light purple angel, received a Scooby Doo and Shaggy adhesive over it's cracked knee. Yesterday Stink mended a shoe lace by replacing the a missing plastic end with a race car sticky.
I might be grown up, but I've got my band-aids still, too. Call them a cup of coffee, a Diet Coke, or a walk with a good friend, it's nice to have instant fixes.
What are your band-aids?
