Kids Say The Darndest Things

I have a cold sore. It's ugly. I know it. What can I do? (Remedies are hereby solicited.)

So at lunch today this adorable kindergartener (A boy of course. I adore little boys. In a totally acceptable mom-like way.) asked me what was wrong with my lip and I explained.

And then he asked me, "Did you get it from blowing your whistle so much?" I laughed so hard, and then I had to tell the other aides. It's true, I do blow the whistle a lot because the kids are so loud and don't listen and my voice isn't very loud. Although, I can now belt out the word "WALK" at a pretty good volume.

Blistex, with SPF 15. Dabbed (gently); it will help it dry. Then use the Blistex (or something with sunscreen) whenever you are outside.

I have no idea, as I've never had one. So sorry you have to deal with it!

Kids do say the most amazing things. Sometimes I wish I could go back to that stage in my life and just say whatever I want. (this usually happens around my mother!)

I just realized I need a whistle. I need to implement a little drill sergeantry into my daily routine. Since the children have become immune to the sound of my voice.
