Soph, as you will all know by now, is a little bit clumsy. Mostly, I figure it’s because she runs around full tilt and is absolutely fearless. She’s brave, and after falling and dusting herself off, will barely stop to glance at the latest in the collection of her ‘owies’ and then she’s off again. Playing for over four hours after breaking and displacing her arm will pay testament to her will, and pain threshold. The clumsy part, she may or may not have inherited that from her Momma. It’s gotten to the point that we’ve started a star chart for her, based solely on her receiving a star for every day she doesn’t hurt herself and come home with a bump, scratch or bruise (she currently has two stars, in two weeks, Go Soph!).
We go through plasters and anti-septic wipes like we do toilet paper, so when a delivery from Me4Kidz arrived and Soph peeked inside to see what it was she shouted ‘It’s for me! It’s for my owies!”. Oli, bless his heart, is the one constantly running for the cold pack, grabbing the plasters and kindly offering to clean her up – that’s just him – he’d make the most incredible doctor or vet, I swear! He spotted the Medibag First Aid Kit and immediately claimed it as his doctor’s bag to look after ‘sissie’ as he affectionately calls her.
From falls (up and down the stairs), to kicked toes, bike falls, skinned knees and scraped elbows (she’s already fallen and skinned her arm where it had broken) – this little bag has us covered. The Kit includes 117 first aid items for kids, as well as the entire family – from assorted kid-friendly bandages to knee and elbow bandages, gauze pads, sting-free antiseptic wipes, burn relief cream, sting relief cream, hand sanitisers, antibiotic ointments, tweezers, cotton tip applicator swabs and an instant ice pack to mention just some of what’s included! The kit also comes with kid-friendly stickers to reward the little ‘patients’ – I mean, stickers make almost anything better, don’t they, and tears magically disappear on cue!
Another little gem in the Me4Kidz range that’s been an absolute lifesaver, I keep one in my car and one in my handbag, is the compact Medi Buddy, containing 50 first aid products, it’s perfect for on-the-go use. From cute character bandages, to gauze pads, antiseptic wipes (sting free) and knee and elbow bandages (yes, and more stickers), this is an absolute must have!
Both of these items are the ideal gift for a birthday or baby shower and the whole range can be shopped online at https://me4kidzsa.co.za/ or can be purchased at all Baby City stores and Pick ‘n Pay Pharmacies nationwide!
