The Girl tripped earlier today. She was whining and whimpering. I chalked it up to the fact that she’s outgrowing naps. She’d been whining and whimpering for a while.

Then I saw the dribble of blood down her leg.

Once she saw the dribble of blood down her leg, her whining and whimpering turned into a full-blown wail. Sigh. They never know the pain until they see blood — or hear their parents gasp in horror.

Instead of gasping, I was able to reach for some cool new bandages we received from Band-Aid. She wasn’t thrilled with the prospect of The Muppets until she saw the Miss Piggy version.

Who wouldn’t be wooed by that purple eye shadow?

Now, hours later, she’s snug in her jammies. She even busted out the footed kind. And she’s more than happy to let me take a picture of her Miss Piggy Band-Aid. In fact, she made quite a point of thanking me at supper for it.

It’s the little things, people.

September is Emergency Preparedness Month. Last week I shared about the Go Bags the kids and I put together. Yesterday JessieLeigh offered some great tips for preparing your kids for emergencies while they are at school. I’m more and more eager to get things in order — just in case.

Band-Aids play a role in all kinds of emergency preparedness, even if it’s just to calm a tired and whiny preschooler with a boo-boo.

Win a First Aid Kit from Band-Aid.

Three Life as MOM readers will each win a first aid kit ($40 value) from BAND-AID®.

The kit includes Brand Adhesive Bandages featuring The Muppets. These bandages feature your favorite Muppets characters in their usual wacky and wild poses! They are available on and at mass retailers with a suggested retail price of $2.99. Watch for sales as these are great to keep on hand for little emergencies, big emergencies, go bags, and even stocking stuffers.

While you and I both know that the efficacy of a bandage does not rely on its exterior appearance, it definitely matters to our kids. Oh boy! Does it! These Muppets Band-Aids are sure to be a hit with your little people. You might want to sport a little Miss P yourself.

  1. Too cute! I especially love the box with the two old guys that sit in the balcony – my favorite!

Thanks so much for participating in this conversation about "a mom's life."

This is a place where moms can be themselves. Remember that each mother's path looks a little different. Please keep your comments respectful and kind. Reasonable minds will disagree in a nice way.

So let's talk about it, using "our big girl words."
