Boo-boo patch

You know those cold gel packs they make to keep swelling down? Well, we have one for Kelton as you might expect. The thing is, he won't let us put it on the actual boo-boo. It scares him too much.

But that doesn't mean he doesn't like it. In fact, every time he hurts himself, he calls out for "boo-boo patch" between sobs. We go to the freezer and retrieve it, and he clutches it like a security blanket. Sometimes he'll go get it from the freezer himself, and even put it back once the tears are dry.

You never know what he's going to do in front of the camera, though, and in this rare case he put the patch on the actual boo-boo -- he'd bitten his tongue.
