Jesus Bandages
"Treat your minor cuts, scrapes and scratches with the incredible healing power of Jesus bandages. And if a Jesus bandage isn't enough to dry up your tears, how about a FREE TOY!

Each comes in a 3-3/4" tall metal pocket tin and contains a Jesus toy to help make even the ouchiest owies feel all better in no time. (Fifteen 3" x 1" sterile bandages per tin.)"

Katie-bug loves her "Doo-Daids" which is a term that came about a year or so ago when she needed her first bandaid. We just so happened to have Scooby Doo Character Bandaids at the time - thus henceforth bandages will be forever known as "Doo-Daids."

It is amazing what Kids can pick up on, recently we've been going through the torture pleading of "I Want! I Want! I Want" everytime a toy commercial airs on TV. Even the Snuggle Fabric Softner gig with the cutsey little bear subliminally gets her to plead, "I Want!"

Heck, a Comet Cleanser commercial came on the other evening and Katie-bug shouts, "Momma Wants! Momma Wants!" Can you guess who most frequently does the scouring and cleaning here at the Mix house?

So here it is, September 17 and now we are hearing everything "Santa Claus". She's already broken out the Christmas DVD's and storybooks. Pleading with us to sing "Jingle Bells". Just the other night she had to have time-out for talking back and she stubbornly noted, "Well... I love Santa Claus."

I've always had issues with Santa and even more so now. I promised that first and foremost I would raise Katie-bug to know that Christmas celebrates the birth of Jesus. I would ingrain that the meaning of Christmas is of gifts of love, mercy and forgiveness. The Big Fat Guy in the Fuzzy Red Suit would have to take second place and backstage during Christmas here. In fact, I don't even want her believing in Santa but instead believing in the Spirit of Christmas via Jesus Christ our Lord.

While Katie-bug was sitting her time-out, I pulled up YouTube and found the perfect video to show her that Santa Claus is ALL Gone! That she cannot Love him, plead for him or even expect anything out of him. Here is that video:


It was so cool to see Katie-bugs face, her expressions and her shouts of horror when Santa met his demise. I should have captured that on video!! It worked EXACTLY as planned so before you think I'm the meanest Mom on the planet you first must here Katie-bug's statement of realization....

"Oh my! HoHo is DEAD!" she shouted with a look of sorrow and shock. Then suddenly her eyes lit up and she shouted joyously, "That's Okay Momma. Baby Jesus will FIX him. Baby Jesus will give HoHo a Doo-Daid and make him all better."

It may be twisted, but at least she now knows and understands that "Jesus is the Reason for the Season" and if it weren't for Baby Jesus there would be no Santa Claus.

"Treat your minor cuts, scrapes and scratches with the incredible healing power of Jesus bandages. And if a Jesus bandage isn't enough to dry up your tears, how about a FREE TOY!"

    My brother did something almost exactly like that with a stuffed talking Teletuby we got him for his birthday as a gag gift. He ran over it again and again with his car, and then it got dragged through the street because it was caught in the wheel well and almost caught fire. Besides, Santa's a fat pedophile in a red suit.

    Good post today...I have mixed feelings on Santa. My kids get way too much stuff, not from us but from relatives.

    I can always send you the ten reasons why Santa cannot exist. I'm not a fan of Santa either.

    Of course, my two still believe in Santa but the truth has come out to B about the Tooth Fairy. He doesn't care cause he still gets his dollar.

    The time is coming for them to know the truth. I know B will appreciate, with his scientific-ness thinking, the ten reasons why Santa cannot exist...still thinking about the other one though.
