  • My now 6 year old did this, but it had to be 'made better' with bandaids! lol Drove me nuts for a while, but she got out of that stage pretty quickly.

  • you could get her baby doll....and pretend it has lots of owwies... have her kiss her baby and make her all better....lol maybe she will stop acting like its her with the owies and it will soon be transferred to the doll... you can even give her bandaids for the doll too....Im sure she will love making her baby feel all better!

  • jodi i dont mind it so much if i wasnt sitting there for 15 mins kissing her while in the middle of trying to cook dinner or putting her to bed. or for goodness sake trying to drink my cup of coffee in the morning.

  • Sounds to me like she loves kisses and attention! When I was a kid my mom used to give us band-aids as birthday presents. Maybe next time she starts this, you could say, "Honey, I'd love to kiss all your owies, but I'm I'm in the middle of dinner right now. Here's a present for you, see if this helps!" Good luck!
