I could hear my 3 year old granddaughter crying, not really crying but the make-believe one, interspersed with little giggles.

What happened sweetheart?” I asked concerned and I could see her holding a box of band-aids in her hand and sticking them on her arms and legs.

“Oh nano, I have an ouchie!”

“But you’ve put on so many bandages my sweetie”, I said taking the box from her tiny hand.

“Because they look so pretty, with cartoons on them”, she replied with her naughty laughter echoing in the room.

She has a habit of finding imaginary ouchies and then treating them with the band-aids her mom buys, and I’ve often had to hide them because when there is a real ouchie, we are usually out of them!

  1. I had a blood test yesterday and the phlebotomist put a band aid on my arm where she took my blood from. That little girl is lucky that she is not all hairy like me, as those band aids hurt when you pull them off.

  2. all we had was mecurichrome, methiolaide, and “flesh colored” band aids. And they usually fell off on my five mile walk to school in the snow, UP hill! Good post

  3. Oh, the joy of an innocent child! 🙂 ❤ Reminds me of the special box of Band-Aids that I keep in my bag for Sunday School… nothing soothes an "imaginary" or real ouchie better!

  4. Is that your grand daughter Sadje? How adorable is she. ❤ ❤

    Just the other day I was thinking of these cute bandaids and that I haven't seen them in a while. My girls used to love them, but not as much as this cutie-patootie. xoxo

      1. I hear you on that, Sadje. Neither do I. Maybe once in a real blue moon, but extremely rare.

        Yes, our little girls are all so cute. Mine are 14 and 24 now, but the cutest flowers of my heart. ❤

  5. Such a sweet story, Sadje! Kids are so precious at certain ages 😊
    Reading Keith’s comment, I don’t feel so bad, lol. I needed a particular small size, couldn’t find it in “adult” ones…. I was fond of the dolphin ones 😉
