Erin M, M.D.
Erin inquires frequently into our health and well-being these days. Any loud bump/crash will bring a "Are you OK, Mommy? OK, Mommy?"
Then there's the band-aids. We've gone through many boxes lately. Here's the routine:
Erin: (opening up a band-aid) Got an ouchie, Mama?
Me: (trying to find anything that resembles a boo-boo. Moles, generally) Yes, sweetie. Right here.
Erin: (looking concerned) What happened?
Me: I touched the stove by accident. It was hot and I said, "Ouch!".
Erin: (smoothing band-aid over ouchie) Feel better, Mama. Feel better.
