Friday Favourites: The One With The Flea Bites




Friday Favourites Flea Bites 01


>> Friday Favourites Link Up Below <<

This week something happened which has never happened to me before – my boy got flea bites.  And lots of them.

I actually struggled internally about whether or not to put this post out, mainly because I was so embarrassed and ashamed of it.  In fact, I still am.

We have a cat.  A freaking cat.  Her name is Daisy, but I often call her the Devil.

Yes, we do regularly flea her, but clearly something didn’t work on this occasion.  Unknowingly she slept on a basket of clean washing, and my boy bore the brunt of whatever ended up in them.

I didn’t know about this until I went to swimming with the kids, and got him changed.  In public.

I was devastated for my boy. And I was embarrassed.  INCREDIBLY embarrassed.

How could I let this happen!?  What sort of parent does this make me look like!?  People are going to think I live in this flea-infested house and don’t care about my kids!

I was, and still am, beyond upset.

When I got home, I did everything but burn the house down.  I threw all of his clothes in the washing machine.  Unleashed a can of fly spray into his room and let it sit there for 20 mins (and yes, I did air it out).  Took the sheets of his bed and burned washed them.  I even re-homed the cat!

Ok, no I didn’t do that last one, but by golly did the thought cross my mind.

I already criticise myself enough as a parent without this happening!!!

Have you had anything like this happen? Perhaps where you felt embarrassed about it?
