What would you do with 2 hours and a box of band-aids?

Poor Peewee - she went to the doctor today because I found a few little bumps on her skin - turns out they were molescum and they were EVERYWHERE!  From her head to her toe (or shoulder to foot - close enough), she was covered!  And worse, the only way to get rid of them is to dig out the center - GROSS!  THANKFULLY, the doctor covered her with numbing cream that sat on her skin for 45 minutes before they went to work on her little body and while I don't think it was very comfortable, she hung in there and didn't even complain once!  I think her daddy and her BoBo may have helped a bit with that too :)  Either way, after 2 hours, a gagillion band-aids and lots of pokes and prods, Baby P has proven herself quite the trooper!!

When they were done, she had over a DOZEN new band aids (including 1 for the scrap she got while we were waiting and she stepped on a pack of BBQ sauce and I tried to clean it and she fell over, skinning her knee, but that's another story), many covering more than one of the spots she had removed :(  Tough day!  The nurse was laughing though because she had 2 little band aids on her bum - one on each cheek!  HaHa - I know, TMI but it was so funny!  I wish I had pictures - not of her bum, you freaks, but of her covered in band aids - it was a toddlers dream come true!

As for me, I've been working on a secret project that you will NEVER persuade me to tell you about!  Oh, ok, it's another blog, but that's all I can tell you!  Well, it's for our frozen dinner swap group - there - exciting I know :)  But it's been fun to prep and I'm excited to roll it out soon!  Oh, my exciting life! ;)

I've got a few more projects in mind for my next 'day off' but ... I'll save that for next time - until then!  Oh, and if you're having a rough day, just grab a band-aid - the 'experts' say they help ;)

All my kids got those at some point. The doctor never removed them, though. She just said they would go away on their own and they always did. They are rather contagious, though, and if she had a ton I could see how they would want to remove them. Hope they stay away!!
