The Bandaids

Sorry, guys. This story is one that only women can relate to!

Gracie is at that age where she asks alot of questions. She and Will both love to play in my bathroom vanity drawers. They pull out old makeup, bottles, lotions, and anything else they can find and have fun. She recently pulled out some panty liners and asked me what they were. I told Gracie they were like big bandaids (no need to explain what they are REALLY for!). So when Gracie would find a cut or open scratch on her body, she would immediately fetch one of my large "bandaids". I had to break the news to her--we don't use those kind of "bandaids" when we hurt ourself--we use the smaller, real bandaids. She understood and didn't seem to mind.

While I was cleaning up the house, I noticed Gracie and Will had disappeared. I figured they had found something to play with and were keeping each other company. Then Gracie yells, "Mommy, baby Will has your bandaids on!" I walked into my bathroom only to find Will had pulled back most of the adhesive sheets of the panty liners and stuck them all over himself. He was smiling from ear to ear.

Then I remembered Ecclesiastes 3:4, "There is a time to weep and a time to laugh." I just didn't know which one to do first....

You are not going to believe this but I got a picture not long ago of a little boy covered with those things! I laughed so hard! That's why I love little boys! They do such precious things and don't even know it!

When my son was about two (he's 29 now) he came out of the bathroom one day with two LARGE pads...one stuck to the bottom of each foot...smiling so big saying "Slippers Mommy!"

Time has a way of robbing us of some great memories, but some things you just never forget.
