Houston, We Have A Problem

Yesterday Stinky Pete got his arm stuck in a toy at Mrs. Heather's. I'm talking his entire arm was stuck in a tubey part of a toy. I was freaking out. I just kept thinking when he's in school, there will be the huge Fisher Price toy hanging off his left arm. That is going to be lovely.
We somehow got his arm unstuck and learned life lesson 1, 289, "It's not a good idea to squish your arm down a small tube opening in a toy."

Last night Moose let out a cry which quickly turned into the, "Houston we have a problem" cry. I have never heard this cry. When we ran in the living room there was blood all over his face. Luckily my family has hypochondriac tendencies and we are all well educated by WebMD, so my training let me know we needed a cold washcloth. We pinpointed the problem to a busted lip, inside his mouth. He hit his mouth on the back of the couch. After we got that situation fixed, Moose wanted a little band-aid therapy. It does not matter that the boo-boo is inside his mouth.

Now we are calling him Jacques, Lumiere, Mr. French or any other french name that comes to mind other than small fry.
Seeing how beautifully band-aid therapy worked on Moose, I thought I'd give it a whirl. (can you hear me, I'm talking really quietly here...I have been out of lipliner for going on 3 weeks...I don't want my mom to hear because that is a major no-no with her) Not about to buy liner until Clinique Bonus days, I've been holding out. Wearing only Bamboo Pink-no liner. Faux Pas. So, I thought I'd try the band-aid therapy, and guess what, it worked! You don't even notice I'm without liner!


Try it for whatever ails you. We know you'll like it. Band-aid therapy may not be suitable for women who are pregnant or nursing. Band-aid therapy may not be right for everyone. Talk to your doctor before you start band-aid therapy. Band-aid therapy may cause weight gain, weight loss, gas, diarrhea, loss of vision, bad hair days and dry mouth.

Now Honey don't you even think LipNaziMama didn't NOTICE the lack o' liner. Bamboo Pink works well, but you know what a little touch of Light Chocolate around those nice outer edges does.....

But anyway glad we could all save the day for MooseALicious.

We'll have to mention the Band-Aid therapy to our Clinique attendant - they can start a new product line.

That was hilarious! The bandaid was, indeed, a perfect solution!

You're a hoot... and clearly you get it from your mom! HA!

My girls need a Band-Aid for every kind of "boo-boo". Whether or not they are actually bleeding is irrelevant... they do not feel their ailment has properly been attended to without application of a Band-Aid.

We have all kinds, and these days Hannah Montana, and Shrek are especially popular...

Cute pics! :-)

Clinique lipliner? Good grief--it's Bonne Bell Strawberry Lip Smackers for me. Maybe I should grow up.

If band-aid therapy would make this baby come, I would gladly jump on the bandwagon!
