Ant Bites!

I just finished posting the "Ants Make Me Itchy" blog, when I hear a yell from outside. Jayden who was playing with Nicholas and Sabboule is now frantically pounding on the door. I run to the door and open it. Words tumble out of Jayden's mouth. "Ants bite me, Mom. Ants bite me. It hurts! Oww!!" I grab him and rush him to the bathroom. As quick as I can I pull of his crocks and turn on the tap. His feet are black with dirt and it takes a little bit of scrubbing and rinsing before I can actually see the colour of his feet. Sure enough. Ant bites, I see the little white circles on his feet.


The soap and water takes away some of the sting, so Jayden soon stops crying. "I'm mad at you ants!" He says. "Don't bite me! That's not nice!" I try to remain serious as I carry Jayden to the kitchen and set him on the counter. Reaching for the first aid kit, I quickly apply the Insect Sting Relief. It works like a charm, and minutes later my little boy is smiling again!

  1. Ahh poor Jayden. I think gramdpa will come and get you and take you back to Chilliwack so the bads ants won't bite you again. A BIG HUG and KISSES from grandma.

  4. If you are ever stuck, a paste made out of baking soda and water will take the sting away very quickly.
