Plasters {The Ordinary Moments}

Children are the funniest things and LP is no exception. Recently LP cut herself and I put a plaster on it which was something completely new to LP – she had never had a plaster on anything in the past.

From that one plaster LP now has an obsession with plasters. She wants a new one on all the time and wants one for every little owie that she has – a bruise, a bump, stubbing her toe. I’ve tried to explain that plasters are for when you’re bleeding and not something you have all the time but nope, that’s not good enough for LP.

LP wakes up in the morning and needs a plaster on her knee before she’ll get ready for school. She’ll get home from school and will need a new plaster as the other one had fallen off and she’ll get out of the bath and demand a new plaster before bed!

Most of the time we use distraction tactics or we’ll use a magic cream instead to see if that helps. But sometimes only a plaster will do – like the time LP put her own chair on her own toe, by accident, and then sat on the chair. That definitely, obviously needed a plaster.

    Oh that’s so sweet! Kitty has fortunately got past her plaster obsession because it does get funny doesn’t it when they’re wearing more plasters than stickers! We found that H’s physio tape that he uses to hold his knees together when playing hockey worked really well – we could just cut little strips off for her that were like plasters and it was bright pink!

    Ha ha that’s really cute and a moment that definitely needs recording on the blog. My husband’s mum said that he used to wear plasters all the time, often in the middle of his face! Being one of 8 children, I think it was his way of getting attention 😉

    Haha this is so sweet, and weirdly I remember going through a bit of a plaster obsession when I was a little girl too! xx

    Ah, so sweet. I can vaguely remember going through a similar phase. They’re funny things aren’t they. Milin had to wear a plaster once and was SO freaked out by it, so no danger of the same thing happening here! X

    So funny! I actually feel slightly relieved that i’m not the only one with a child that’s obsessed with plasters. Riley wants to wear them all the time and just runs round with them stuck all over the place. xxx

    Haha, so cute although you will have to stock up on plasters 🙂 Lucas has had one on once and as soon as it was on he freaked out and wanted off, they have funny little ways! xx

    So cute! Something about plasters that are rather addictive to children! Moo is obsessed with them and constantly wants one on!
