Like most 2-year olds J has developed an obsession with having "boo-boos," and he is constantly pointing out microscopic lesions on his body so he can score a band-aid. He'll even wince in fake pain when I'm checking them out, and after he gets his band-aid he'll randomly hunch over the area like a wounded animal and push me away, going, "NO!! DON'T TOUCH MY BOO-BOO!!" . This is usually followed by him hopefully asking, "Medicine?". Yeah, he tries to score Tylenol and Motrin, too, whenever he can.
Very cute, right? Only not so cute when his new daily routine is to point out zits on my face and tell me, "Mommy got boo-boos onna face." Thank you, baby, for telling me that. It's right up there with him trying to pull up my shirt so he can poke my fat belly, yell, "Mommy booty!" and cackle hysterically. Next thing you know he'll be pointing out wrinkles and gray hairs....
