Bugs and the Beach

The kids who cried wolf...

In my last vacation post I mentioned that our trip went off without injuries, stings or bites, but then remembered we did have some bites.  Between the house and the sand there is a yard which is infested with ant beds.  As long as you keep walking and don't stand in a bed, no problem and Jadon who is terrified of the ants always insists on having his hand held when walking across the grass.

One evening I was back at the house and Jadon was all upset that he had stepped in an ant bed.  My assumption was that no one held his hand, so he was freaked out at the thought of ant bites.  His feet were covered in sand and all looked ok... so I brushed off his tears and told him he was ok.  In the shower as we cleaned off his feet... lo and beyond.... ant bites.  Poor little man....  I feel like a terrible mother for not believing him, but in my defense the tears over minor things flow constantly in our home.....

Once the bites were discovered, he got tons of "poor babies" and kisses from Mommy....
