During the making supper before a tiny-people riot breaks out rush this afternoon, I was assaulted with the wailing and gnashing of teeth of a sweet little someone who had been in his room carefully putting away all of his toys and making his bed jumping off of his dresser onto his unmade bed. He missed. He fell. He needed an ice pack for his owie.
I didn’t have time to look for an ice pack, (and I’m not too sure I could have found one anyway) so I reached for our “back up.”
It was cold. It calmed him down. It saved the day. It was a partial bag of frozen peas.
And as I finished up supper preparations, my resourceful children had themselves a little snack. 😉
So, in the event that a sweet little someone in your house has jumped off of his dresser and scraped his leg on his bed, or, um… even if there is a serious bang up of some sort and you really could use an ice pack — NOW — reach for the frozen veggies! It works for me! Visit Rocks in my Dryer for more WFMW.
