So, if your child ever gets a huge splinter in hi/her leg...remember this tip.
(Thank you Pinterest)
Numb the area with this:
It works like a charm. I'm not saying full compliance...but you won't have to hold your child down with the full force of two adults in order to remove the splinter.
Addie had the worst splinter I've ever seen last week after crawling around on a wooden deck at school. It took Mike and I two tries to remove it. We even had my Mom give it a try. It was bad situation. I was pretty sure we were going to have to go to the doc's. But alas, Mike became superhero dad.
Score one for Daddy skills.
