Small Scale Surgery

Tuck got a splinter as we played outside yesterday.

Dr. Daddy removed it today, with help from his assistant, Nurse Mommy. Robb went at it with his sterilized needle and tweezers, and I held the patient and sang Five Little Ducks and I Am a Promise.

That's not my favorite.

But he was very brave, and he got two band-aids, some Neosporin, and an m&m on the other side of the procedure.

I have hated splinters from the first day I met them. Now I have a new reason to hate them.

"...I am a great big bundle of potentiality! Oh yeah!" You've got me singing and smiling over here! I hope Tucker is on the mend. He seems to be taking a beating lately! Feel better, buddy!
