Don't scratch!

Have I ever mentioned that I'm highly allergic to mosquito bites?

Exhibit A:

Yes, highly allergic. Putting aside the fact that my feet are horribly swollen at the moment and the fact that I obviously need to vacuum my stairs, LOOK AT THE SIZE OF THAT BITE! Do you have any idea how hard it is not to scratch something this itchy that also happens to be the size of a pad of Post-Its?

So. Very. Itchy...

Oh, and Jasper would like you all to know that he doesn't approve of anyone taking a picture unless he's included in the shot.

What I really want to know is how is your pedicure holding up so well?

During my first pregnancy I made J paint my toenails for me...he was, let's just say, inexperienced. But what could I do? My toes were so far away!

During my second pregnancy I happily paid a professional and left the first 'baby' home with daddy!

Rub a little wet Dial soap on a fresh, or one just a little bit old, mosquito bite and it will shortly disappear. Liquid Dial may work too, but I just have never bought any so haven't tried it. You will be greatly surprised!!

OMG, your poor feet! That was the first thing I thought when I saw the photo. And second, OMG, I hate mosquito bites...there was one time in Maine where I got bit 15 times between the driveway and our door. YUCK. I really hope that you can find something to make it stop itching!
