First Aid

Lil Sippy Cup has a new found fascination with Band-Aids.

Lately, since we have spent a lot more time traveling on the train and hanging out in outer-borough playgrounds, I have begun to carry a pretty decently stocked dopp kit full of the things we might need throughout the day: Hand Sanitizer, First-Aid Spray, Band-Aids, Flares, that sort of stuff.

The Lightning McQueen Band-Aids are, without a doubt, his favorite part of the kit.

However, he uses the Band-Aids for decorative purposes as opposed to actual medical need. 

For example, I recently found him with 6 Band-Aids fully covering one elbow.

In response to this, I've had to hide the box in the upper reaches of the medicine cabinet.

Nevertheless, he found them.

Lil Sippy Cup: "Dad, are those the Band-Aids?"

Me: "Yes.  Yes they are."

Lil Sippy Cup: "Can I have one please?"

Me: "No lil dude.  I already explained to you that those are only for when you get really hurt."

Lil Sippy Cup: "Oh.  I'm hurt now."

Me: "No you aren't.  Band-Aids cover the big scrapes and cuts that bleed."

Lil Sippy Cup: "Oh ok."

Leaves the bathroom.

Lil Sippy Cup (shouting in terror from the hallway): "Mom!  Mom!  I'm bleeding!  I'm bleeding!  Aaaaaahhhhhh!"
