It's so funny how kids will mix up words. For the longest time Curly had called Band-Aids by the wrong name. She will walk up to me crying and say, "Mommy, hurt me. Need rubber band!" I have been trying since this started to tell her that in fact she needs a Band-Aid. The whole time we are going to get one I emphasize that we are going to get a BAND-AID for her owie.
Today I have been cleaning a lot. It's that whole nesting post baby thing and I am trying to get my house back in order. I went in the bathroom while she was eating her lunch to put my hair up. Having thick hair like mine gets very hot when you are active. I walk out and she says, "Band-Aid there!"
Confused I asked her what she was talking about. "Mommy have Band-Aid on her right there!" As I am looking all over my body to figure out what the heck she is talking about she says, "Mommy!" trying to get my attention and tell me that I am so dense and she can't believe I don't get it, "Band-Aid in yours hair!". This time she was yelling at me with a tone of disappointment in how much intelligence I was lacking.
Got it. Band-Aid is something she thinks I wear in my hair, and rubber band is something I put on you when you are bleeding. Mommy will try to be smarter in the future.
