Happy Feet

During the week, Peanut cut the tip of her toe somehow. It wasn't a big deal other than it was bleeding pretty good. Mrs. Joe put the standard Dora The Explorer band-aid on it and all was well for awhile. Unfortunately, the band-aid didn't want to stay put. Three band-aids later, the toe was exposed again and Peanut wailed to the point that you would think the toe needed to be removed.

I said to Mrs. Joe, "Just put a regular band-aid on it. They stick better than those tiny Dora ones."

Mrs. Joe replied, "She doesn't like the regular band-aids. She wants a Dora band-aid."

To this reply, I sprang into action. If Peanut doesn't want a regular band-aid, fine. I'll give her a one of a kind. With that may I present:

"Mr. Big Toe"

I'd like to thank Band-Aids, Sharpie & Neosporin for the tools needed for this creation. Mr. Big Toe was a great success. Peanut walked around for the next two days with Mr. Big Toe protecting her cut. She showed it to everybody. The cut has healed and Mr. Big Toe has been put away waiting to help another little toe.

And if there is a little foot in your house in the need of a special kind of band-aid, feel free to call on Mr. Big Toe.

Footnote (ha-ha): Mrs. Joe is responsible for the painted toenails.

You saved the day with your band-aid artwork! Nicely done.

Well done. My mother-in-law used to draw faces on the bottom of toes--without the band-aid. She called them toe people.

It's a good thing the band aid didn't get stuck --otherwise, a comment like "Sorry, Peanut, but we're gonna have to cut off Mr. Big Toe" might have had lifelong ramifications.
