We went to visit a show home for a townhouse complex that’s being built close by. There were small spotlights in the corner, shining up on the walls. Aili walked right up to it and tried to pick it up, and burned her thumb.
It blistered immediately and by the next day had become the biggest blister I’ve ever seen! She was remarkably stoic about the whole thing, with very minimal crying or whining.
Of course the day after that she picked at it until it burst, and then picked at the Band-Aids I put on it, and then picked at the skin flaps until I trimmed them away.
She seems mostly recovered now, except for a newfound addiction to Band-Aids.
