Black eyes with peas

Bug tried to do a flip on the mini-trampoline today and in perfect form he smacked his nose and upper lip. The nose looked bad especially with the impending black eye. He wouldn't use an ice pack because it was too cold and rough. Dr. Mom to the rescue. How about a pea pack. (One of the best companions for a breastfeeding mom is that bag of frozen peas that has probably been sitting in the freezer for ever. Peas conform to varying shapes better than ice cubes or packs.) Bug thought I was crazy. I just took some left over birthday balloons, stuffed them with 1-2 dozen peas, added a smidge of water, tied them off and voila, instant mini ice packs. I must admit, these are pretty cool and I will be making more, just to have on hand. Quick, easy, disposable, and kid sized, what could be better.
