When I'm rocking Jane to sleep at night, I like to tell her little things about how much I love her. Like, "Jane, I would love you even if you wore socks on your ears and earmuffs on your toes to keep warm." Or, "Jane, I would love you even if you decided you hated Mardi Gras and loved the Atlanta Falcons." Or, "Jane, I would love you even if you were green and were covered in polka dots."
Well, my silly little banter backfired, because as of yesterday, Jane was indeed covered in dots. The dots I speak of are care of the terrible, awful skeeter situation we have here in New Orleans. With no winter freeze, they are worse than ever! The second we step outside, they swarm around Jane. I counted ten bites including one on the bottom of her foot and one on her ear...
We've got this bug repellant sunscreen from Whole Foods, but it turns her into a citronella candle and doesn't seem to do anything.
Readers. I NEED YOUR HELP!!!
What do you use to keep these icky pests away? What do you use to help your little one once they've been attacked?
