Isabella has this really weird obsession with band-aids right now.

She is currently sporting at least four on her right hand. It’s very possible, of course, that it’s because her brother has a broken finger and a very fancy (read: not fancy and kind of currently 11-year-old boy grimy) cast and is getting some extra attention because of it.

Although the attention is mostly manifesting itself in choice words such as

“AARON JOSHUA. Please explain to me how it’s possible that you LOST YOUR CAST at school today.”

Shrugs.

“Casts don’t usually fall off.”

“Well, maybe they do when you are playing frisbee and football behind the portables at recess.”

Deep breaths, deep breaths, deep breaths.

 

So yes. Band-aids.

Lots of them.

MY FINGER IS GUSHING.

I see nothing, babe.

YOU ARE BLIND, OBVIOUSLY. IT’S GUSHING.

Where did you cut it? On your paper?

MY HOMEWORK IS TRYING TO KILL ME.

That’s funny, your homework is trying to kill me too.

THAT’S NOT FUNNY.

Either is your homework.

Math-homework-third-grade

I NEED MORE BAND-AIDS.

Deep breaths, deep breaths, deep breaths.

 

I guess today I’m feeling thankful for deep breaths.

And cheap band-aids.

And pie.

  1. I’m still highly amused about Josh (I actually forgot his first name is technically Aaron. Is it a family name?) losing his cast, but yeah, deep breaths are necessary in order to deal with that one.

    It’s actually a long story.
    May grandfather’s name was Aaron. and I wanted to call him Joshua Aaron.

    And then when G was filling out the paperwork he was all, I don’t want his initials to be JAM, so I’ll just change them around.

    So, he’s technically Aaron Joshua. But no one ever calls him that, really, except for customs agents.

  2. What is it with kids and Band-aides? Wind blows on my son the wrong way and he claims he’s dying if he doesn’t get a Band-aide. I should probably buy the old school skin toned ones.
    That’ll teach him.
    And you’re telling me that homework gets worse after SK?

  3. Is that homework assignment to just write random numbers?

  4. Looks like Grade 3? Math makes sense? Except it doesn’t?
