Around lunch time Mattey let out a squeal. Next thing I know she's running away from the microwave. I asked her what was wrong and she said there was a huge bug (I think she said hornet) over there. I saw it and asked for someone to get me a shoe. No one did. (So helpful, aren't they?) While I went to get a shoe the bug moved. I couldn't find it anywhere and I knew it wasn't a hornet. Maybe it's a new mutant bug that can disappear. Even though I said it was gone the reds didn't want to step foot in the kitchen. I found that to be humorous since it could fly and literally be anywhere in the house.
After a few minutes Mat decided she'd risk it and get lunch. Kade still wouldn't. A few minutes later I found the huge bug on the floor.
It looks like an enormous mosquito but I'm not sure what it is. Can anyone tell me?
I shooed it toward the back door with a shoe. I got it close enough that when I opened the door it hopped right out. While doing this I probably let in five other bugs. It could be a long buggy summer if we keep this up. The kids will just have to learn to kill them on their own.
