Many years back, when the kids were little, I scrap-booked like there was no tomorrow. Obsessively filling their books with stories and photos…all arranged on pretty papers.
I remember getting these FANTASTIC bandage stickers that came with tiny little ambulances and stethoscopes. I COULDN’T WAIT for one of my kids to get hurt so I could snap a couple of pictures and form the story.
OH…wait a minute…that’s wrong isn’t it? (I’m talking like a tiny scrape…a wee splinter…maybe a small tumble that would cause an irrational amount of toddler tears…nothing big.)
They’re older now and it’s been eons since I purchased character bandages that were worn so proudly. Placed on a scraped knee or an invisible cut…with just the right amount of love and concern…and a kiss to make it better.
Lately, all I do is hand over a couple of Advil with a glass of water while placing an ice pack on a worn out body…one too many knocks in front of the goalie net or an over extension of a hip flexor during practice. No kisses…just ice.
I received a package full of adhesive pads, dressings, tape, bright-colored bandages, skin crack repair and acne absorbing covers to name a few of the items in a box stuffed full of Nexcare Brand products that arrived at my door! Now, I’m just waiting for one of my kids to fall while running, maybe for one of them to reach into a hockey bag and skim their finger with a skate blade, possibly get hit with a volleyball or trip over their ever-growing feet…just so I can use my fancy new products…wrap them ever so gently and finish it off with a kiss to make it better!
