It is SO ironic that THIS daily deal shows up THIS morning of all mornings. I had quite the fun time this morning with Zachary. You see, on Monday we had the day off school and went to the park. He (and his buds) thought it would be great fun to stir up ant mounds and watch them all scurry about. So guess who wound up with three ant bites on his foot. Did I mention we live in Texas, and they were fire ants? Yeah....so....he's got a few toes that have big "VAMPIRE" (to quote him) ant bites which have caused his toes to be swollen, red (as fire), and alternately stinging and itching. Fun stuff. This morning it was just all too much for him to take, and he decided there was NO WAY he could go to school. He MUST stay home. No dice. You got a fever? Throwing up? YEP, you may stay home with Mommy all day and I will baby you and take care of you. Ant bite? NOPE - you're going to school. So, yes, I dragged him screaming and crying into the school nurse and then into the classroom once he had calmed down and been assured the Mommy did indeed do everything that could possibly be done for an ant bite.

You know the bugs are coming. It's inevitable. While this bracelet won't protect little Zach from fire ants, I HOPE he's learned his lesson and won't stir up their little homes anymore.
