With a five year old and three year old running a muck in the house, there are all sorts of bruises and bumps. Ever since James was a baby, I've treated these injuries in a fashion taught to to me by Mr. Miyagi.
Remember in The Karate Kid when Mr. Miyagi heals Daniel's leg with that hand rubbing trick? That's what I do. I get all serious, channel Mr. Miyagi and rub my hands together fast and furiously. Then, I place my warm hands upon the wound and make this ooohm sound. This technique never fails to work and the kids now demand my "Miyagi trick" when they hurt themselves. When I remove my hands, the pain is gone.
Thank you, Mr. Miyagi.
