the band-aid

we have a bit of a problem at our house,
you see, we have a 2 year old who is addicted to BAND-AIDS!
it's quite funny, if he bumps his knee or scratches his arm (even in just the tinest way) we need a band-aid on it quick. i'm sure many of you moms and dads out there are laughing right now because i'm sure this is a common thing for a 2 year old.
but the problem is...this particular boo boo is on his head, meaning the band-aid is in his HAIR!!! and this is day two of the band-aid being in the hair, and he is showing absolutely no signs that it will be coming out anytime soon! in fact, we've tried, oooooooooo how we've tried! and each time it's "no, band-aid stay in mine hair".
here's a visual for's not the best picture but i had to snap something!
this was taken this morning on our way to school.
booderbean, i don't want to have to shave your head (oh LORD no!!!)
but this thing HAS to come out :)

i hate to tell you, but we are still in the bandaid stage. one thing that occasionally works (and i stress the occasionally part) is for husband to put invisible bandaids and medicine on the invisible ouchies. sometimes she goes for it, othertimes it has to be the real deal. anothing thing that i've tried in moments of desperation (i.e. we've already used up all the bandaids in the house and i'm not going to walmart at 7:30 for a pretend ouchie) is to find a sticker that is bandaid shaped. we just happened to have a few mickeymouse clubhouse stickers that were kind of long oval shapes, so i have resorted to that too.

wish i could tell you he's gonna get over it quickly, but i don't think that's the case. at least it hasn't been for us.

so, my last piece of advice is: buy stock in johnson and johnson (the makers of bandaid)... at least you'll make a little of your money back! lol!

You will go through many many bandaides in the next few years... ENJOY.
We have never had one in the hair though... cute!

Oh yes, GiGi would still have ouchies all over if I allowed it. I always tell her that we are out of bandaids. I think you should invest in some fun stickers. We usually have a bunch on hand at our house. Good Luck getting that out of his hair!
