Just for the record, I would like to express how much I hate mosquitos. After all the rain we’ve had, the mosquitos are going crazy on the island. And when I say going crazy, I mean snacking on my children. We have closed all the bedroom windows, applied mosquito repellent at bedtime, and checked the yard for standing water. It doesn’t matter – the kids are bitten and keep getting bitten every day. We went to Walmart and the mall today and everywhere I went I saw parents with kids who looked just like mine. It is our common, post-rain bond of motherhood…itchy kids.
Poor Robi has the most – tons all over and at least dozen on her face. Robby D had polka dotted feet and legs (and a very itchy ear that’s been waking him up tonight). Trista is all legs and arms. I feel so junk about it – I can’t protect them and I can’t fix them either. I went looking for mosquito punks yesterday and today and all three stores I visited were sold out. I can’t leave unattended candles burning and the stores were completely sold out of any other options. Boo.
Screw you, Mosquitos. You Suck.
