I Have Magic Kisses

Keith hates bandaids.  I think it is the oddest thing.  All Most toddlers I have met love bandaids.  They consider it a cure all. 

But not my son.  No, he refuses to wear one.  When he gets cut and is bleeding all over, he doesn't scream or cry.  When I try to put a bandaid on it though, good   golly miss Molly!  You would think the world has come to an end.  He kicks and screams and cries until he can rip that bandaid off.

However, when he gets hurt, he shows me where he got hurt (usually his finger) and asks me to kiss it better.  And the kissing it better generally happens four or five times in the hour.  And then it really is all better.

If only that is how it really works, hu?

The funniest part, is I never taught him about kissing an owie or a hurt better.  He just asked me to do it one day.  What a sweet little boy.

And that, my friends, is the payment for Motherhood.  The sweet little tear stained face pleading "Kiss it better, Mommy.  Kiss it all better."  And the warmth that engulfs your heart as you realize the total and complete trust and love the child has for you.

Very cute. You should see if he would wear the cool kids designer band aides. Maybe call them Tattoos and just put them on him for fun.

Yeah! My son hated them too, but my daughter loved them. Actually she still loves them.

Sammy didn't like bid-aids and then one day tah-dah they were the coolest thing in the world... of course they only stay on for like 5mins....

Oh my goodness, our boys are the same person. I thought my kid was the only weird one out there. ;)

Miss H will leave the band aid box empty from putting them on when she doesn't even have a boo boo. I'm shocked he doesn't like them! Awwww, he just wants your kisses ma.

So sweet... and I wish my kisses were so magical. They were with Lucas, but with Alex she is ALL about band-aids. She gets a little bump "I NEED a BAND-AID!" Which she will put on herself, wear for about 30 seconds then declare it better. Yeah, we have a big stock of band-aids around here.

My grandson is afraid of band-aids because he associates them with shots at the doctors. That's okay. Mom's kisses are better anyway, right?

PS. And thanks for making the font bigger!

Yes, most toddlers love band-aids.

But kisses from Mom really are much better!
