Scout is just over 3 months old, and I love staying home to take care of her and soak up as much of her cuteness as possible.
But being at home also stinks.
I hate bugs. All of them. And last week they teamed up on me.
Never have I ever been stung by a bee, so I’m especially scared of them because I am terrified by the unknown.
I mean, look at childbirth. I’d never been through that before and that was awful. I’m sure bee stings are equally as awful.
So the bee is buzzing around the kitchen window.
I decided to grab some paper towels to wrap around my hand to protect it, so I could reach next to the bee to unlatch and open the window.
One problem. There was a spider on the paper towels.
A bee and a spider? At the same time. Life is so unfair.
I’ve read Scary Stores to Tell in the Dark, and I know what happens when spiders bite you. This:
So I had a choice to make: bee sting or spider bite.
I decided to take on the bee sans paper towel shield. Luckily, the bee flew out the window without a stinging incident.
Then I ripped off the paper towel and dropped it in the trash and took it outside.
But that’s the downside to being a stay-at-home mom. You have to risk your life to take care of the creepy crawlies yourself.
