I admit it. I’m a parental failure when it comes to putting on a band-aid.
I understand that medical professionals, such as nurses, can correctly apply a band-aid. They probably take a “Bandages 101” course. But, I feel demoralized when I see other parents who can gracefully peel off one of the tabs, gently apply that adhesive side to the skin so that the gauze perfectly covers the wound, smoothly peel off the remaining tab, and effortlessly apply that adhesive side to the skin.
My method starts with peeling off both tabs, causing at least one of the adhesive sides to stick to my finger. I then slap the band-aid over my kid’s wound, trying to get the adhesive portion off of my finger and onto his skin. The gauze may or may not completely cover the wound. The process is never graceful and I almost always wind up dropping one or both of the peeled-off tabs onto the floor. If it’s a good day, I’ll pick them up. If it’s a bad day, I just leave them on the floor, hoping they’ll magically walk to the trash can. They never do, though. Jerks.
