I will now spend the next 5-6 months slathering dry little parts with creams and lotions. It's a full-time job.
Henry: Face and hands
Spencer: Legs and backs of knees (you should SEE the backs of his knees...)
Oliver: Face and arms
Ezra: Hands, bum and legs
|From November 2011|
My poor, poor finger will spend the entirety of the cold weather season split and bloody. When I put the necessary bandaids on, everything gets wet and then I become quite concerned that my fingers are going to mold. It's very nerve-wracking. But if I don't cover them, then any bump[ or hit causes bleeding and ridiculous amounts of pain for the small-ness of the injuries.
I've tried liquid bandages. No dice. First, it washes off. (Did you know I wash my hands approximately 22 times a day?) Second, it hurts so terribly to put it ON the open cracked skin that I get nauseated.
I've had four children with no drugs. I'd rather do that than glue my fingers back together. Pathetic huh?
So I keep buying bandages, and Oliver keeps opening them all and sticking them places and there you go. My winter, coming right at me.
