Stellar Housekeeping and Parenting
Unfortunately, the pancake breakfast was momentarily delayed by an ant invasion. There are lots of ants outside our house. If you leave anything available to them, we then have ants inside our house. There was a hearty trail of ants coming under our front door, crossing the carpet in to the kitchen, and heading under the kitchen cart. I moved the kitchen cart to discover a chicken nugget (from lunch with friends the day before), which was heavily peppered with moving ants. I was laughing at the absurdity of it as I grabbed the broom and dustpan to sweep up the ants and nugget in one go.
But then I looked down and there was no nugget, just ants. I looked around and saw that Gigi was holding the nugget, and lots of ants. And I could see that she had taken a bite out of the nugget, just by looking at her face, which now had ants on it.
I felt bad that she was eating old meat and bugs, but I laughed a lot too. You don't need to bother, I'll call DCFS on myself.
