I've mentioned previously that everyone seems to have some kind of eczema/skin thing going on - all different types, but everyone seems bothered at once.
So of course I've been thinking constsantly about it to see what I could come up with as a cause, and trying a few internet searches. Jeffrey's was mostly in one area...I thought, "Maybe it's some kind of bite?" Not soon after, I come across a thread on bedbugs on Mothering.com, and I start imagining some horrible infestation (they are apparently very hard to get rid of, and just for the record, I'm 99.9% sure we don't have them!). But now they are in my head and I keep thinking "bedbugs."
Fast forward a day or so to tonight. A new-ish neighbor and his wife have taken a liking to our kids (they don't have their own yet), although we don't know them very well. He dropped something off inside our door because I missed the bell while trying to wrestle a clean diaper on a very upset Jeffrey. I go to open the door, and see a bag of...
Turns out they are really supposed to be dust mites. ;-) The neighbor pops by later to explain that he works for a pest-control company and they were giving away these things, and he wanted our kids to have some.
I'm still chuckling, but a little :-P.
