is it just my kids?

Buddy keeps falling.

I think he's trying to run faster than he actually can. But in the last 2 days he's had 3 bloody scrapped knees.

Being a softy good mommy, I've cleaned, bandaged, and kissed all three.

But he now refuses to bend those knees.

Girly-Lou has always been the same way. Whatever position skin is in when you stick a bandaid on, it is impossible to move.  So elbows must remain bent for the next week until they forget. They either walk around hunched over with completely bent knees, or with perfectly straight ones.

Anyone else have kids that are so super aware of bandaids?  At least Buddy rips them off after a few hours. Girly-Lou leaves them on until I hold her down and rip them  off, relishing in the screams the whole way convince her to take them off.


  1. Ah, the joys of motherhood!!

    I don't recall mine refusing to bend after the band-aid.

  2. How do you do the whole crossing out text thingy that you do? Its way nifty!

  3. It kind of sounds like you enjoy torturing Girly-Lou. I know, it's just because eventually the band-aid's have to come off, but it made me laugh anyway.
