There really are few things tape can't fix. Usually duct tape, but in this case it was electrical tape. Nation sliced his finger pretty bad on an old fashion batman lunch box [thanks Old Navy]. Charles wrapped it up, but Nation didn't want to get it wet...that's where I came in...I rigged up a ziplock water proof hand protector. Worked like a charm.
Incidentally, when Nation is really injured he doesn't want me, he wants his daddy. I'll never forget last summer when Nation was outside playing and Charles was in the carport and Nation got hurt, but ran into the house screaming looking for us. I heard him screaming [I was in the shower], but thought he must have gotten in trouble and was with Charles. Then I heard him scream..."Where's my daddy?" and I knew... I got out and blood was everywhere because he'd been running up and down the hall. I forget now what he hurt, but it wasn't as bad as it looked. Just a lot of mess. Charles came flying in from outside and Nation ran to him and not me. It was a terrible moment, but I still remember how desperate Nation was on his daddy.
If you get hurt this week...run to Daddy.
