shaken, not stirred {the sobs}

one round too many
of hide and seek
left brennan with a scraped up elbow and knee.
and wet eyelashes from the sobs.
there's crying,
and then there's what i call "the sobs."
he had a major case of the sobs.
crying that needs attention now.
b/c the skinned elbow and knee
"might need to be amputated it hurts so badly"
kind of sobs can't wait.
the alcohol swabs were the most traumatizing part.
dad did that deed swiftly.
max started crying FOR brennan after that.
her sympathy pains are on a level of their own.
but bandaids and "woovies" {movies} cure all ills around these parts.
AND a stiff drink of chocolate milk
{two scoops of ovaltine in milk, shaken not stirred}
after baths,
brennan informed me that one ouchie was in the trash
{the knee scrape one},
but the other ouchie was still on his arm,
not in the bandaid yet,
so it would have to stay on all night.
love that kid.

I like that concept. Once the bandaid falls off it takes the ouchie with it.
