Bug Bites

The kids were like a buffet for the mosquitoes over the weekend. I can blame myself for failing to put repellent on them. Madi must have ten red, swollen bites on each leg.

After watching Madi scratch at her poor legs all day long for relief, I applied some Benedryl cream to the bites last night.

As I rubbed her legs, I shook my head and told Madi that I was very angry. "At who?" she asked. "At the mosquitoes." I replied in disgust. 

"Why did God make mosquitoes?" she asked. "I don't know." I replied...again in disgust.

Madi suddenly became very annoyed with me and said, "MOMMY!"  "How would YOU feel if you were just a little bug and you had no food???!!!"

She sure puts things in a different light sometimes.

"So....you're not mad at the mosquitoes?" I asked.

"No." she responded quite adamantly.

How smart Madi is to have made the connection. And how sweet to forgive her attacher!
