We have a minor ant problem. Just a few in the front of the house, we never see more then maybe 5 at a time and they're tiny Pavement ants. So... I want to get rid of the ones in the house as they are starting to range further afield. They haven't made it from the front living room to the next living room yet (we 'dispose' of them by various means, which I feel awful about. I don't like to kill creatures 'just because' but they've invaded my space and I want them out!)....
i'm not an American, although I live here, so baby showers are a little alien to me. I wouldn't go I'd absolutely send a nice baby gift and a card once the baby was born though as that's the tradition I'm familiar with.

I'm glad you guys got the wee man's medical issues resolved. Do you think the steroid cream worked because it loosened the foreskin or because it treated an underlying, unidentified condition that was causing the pain, inflammation, irritation etc? I ask because I have a background in dermatology and betamethasone is a fairly potent steroid so my thinking was, the majority of 5 yo boys have very tight foreskins (if we agree that the average age of retraction is 10.5...

That's adorable It sure beats the family of mice (it sounded like an extended one) that lived in the walls of an old house I used to live in.
I lived in a VERY rural area at one point and as someone who wasn't scared of bugs, I still had an 'ewwww' reaction to them being so up close and personal in my everyday life, garden and home. I have never been a squisher, all indoor bugs are escorted outdoors including house flies.
