the ants go marching....
ethan and kendall and avery were playing outside the other day when, apparently ethan was playing too close to an ant home...not a hill, it was just a hole in the ground really. but kendall got him to the door and i heard him crying really loudly so i took avery and he rushed into the bathroom with ethan to put him in the tub. he was wearing sandals and long pants and short sleeves...he had welts all over his feet, on his fingers and they were starting to swell some. his arms were red/rashy looking. he had ants crawling up the leg of his pants. not good folks. they were super tiny ants, but these blisters were huge and bright white with red around the edges. the pictures were taken the day after...so they are all red now. even in between his toes...is there no justice? poor kid. pretty itchy. we have him on benadryl and some hydrocortisone cream for the itch. it doesn't seem to bother him TOO much. but it was pretty traumatic for him. we went and bought some ant killer today in case we have introduced some new "friends" to our house...we'll see.
