Reason #769 why I can never be a cool parent with these children. Why I will never be the cool parent I assumed I would be.
What is that festering stick laying on the floor you ask?
Why, it's a lollipop! It's a lollipop festering on the floor of the closet of my girls! How on earth did that happen? I let the girls have a lollipop each one day but I know I said to throw it away when it is finished. I KNOW I never said put in on the floor in your closet.
And oh my gracious, what is THAT bit of nastiness?
Why yes, it IS an ant!
See, the nice thing about that picture is that when the ants heard I was coming back with my camera they all scurried their little selves off.....somewhere else and left this one to die alone. Before I warned them I was coming back there were probably 15 ants feeding off this thing.
Ya know, if you can't beat 'em, join 'em. I stuck a couple of ant killing bait traps in there with the lollipop. Normally no self respecting ant I have ever met would be caught with its pants down near a bait trap, but this appears to be one powerful lollipop.
You might be interested to know that no one did this. Mmmm hmmm, I thought that was strange too. But my children do not lie and they both insisted they are not responsible. So. That's all I know.
