There Are Bugs in Here & They Are Going To Hurt Me!!!
Monday night at 5:30 or so and as I am cutting up tomatoes and onions for Pico De Gallo for fajitas for dinner time, I hear what sounds like a small child crying in pain.
When I stop to hear better, it sounds like it is coming from our bathroom. It also sounds like Lily not Emma.
I wash and dry my hands, putting my chopping to the side to go check.
When I get in the bathroom, I find Lily sitting on the toilet. Eyes bloodshot and face completely wet from her tears.
I immediately bend down to ask why she is crying and try to comfort her.
Her response is one I don’t completely expect yet somehow doesn’t shock me either (and will explain why in a moment.).
She utter the first block quote on this post, about there being bugs in the bathroom. She is afraid and seems to think they will hurt hurt.
The bugs are no more then tiny, little fruit flies and the type you see this time of the year usually after you garden and hanging around picked fruits and vegetables.
Let me make it clear, I am not a gardner of fruits and veggies one bit being a city girl born and raised through and through.
Even though Emma’s sunflower is indeed prospering, I really most of the times have a black thumb. Even when Kevin and I first got married, his mom gifted me a flowering shamrock plant. It was beautiful and lasted all of 3 weeks before my handiwork got to it. I followed the directions and still somehow murdered this plant. Thankfully, Kevin’s mom is forgiving and also not a gardner by any means. But yet I digress.
Back to Lily and her fear of all things bugs.
Seriously, if a bug outside even comes anywhere near her, she will back into the corner and cower in fear, crying and screaming.
The kid hates and fears bugs with the best of them.
So, the scene in the bathroom to two tiny little fruit flies (again not sure where they came from), didn’t shock me in the least, but I did feel so bad for her, because she was definitely scared and unnerved.
However, once I calmed her and got her finished up int he bathroom. I began to get back to preparing dinner, where I recalled an earlier conversation with Kevin.
It was only that morning, he shared a funny video with me of a bear cowering in the corner in reaction and fear to a lion coming into contact with said bear.
He was cracking up when he shared this with me and told me the bear was Lily (and Emma, too) and the lion were outside bugs – and how they react to these bugs.
I stood in my kitchen remembering this and couldn’t help, but begin to laugh uncontrollably at what had just occurred a few minutes previously in our bathroom.
While I once again felt sorry for Lily, I still couldn’t help but laugh at the thought of her sitting their paralyzed with fear on the toilet reacting to flies that couldn’t hurt her and thinking of the bear that could more then defined herself against the lion, too.
You be the judge and see the video/gif for yourself that had me in fits of laughter and giggles, too.
