Mosquitoes, Gene Hackman and a new club!

Little Elvis favors an older actor right now. Actually, our sweetie-pie looks more like Gene Hackman than either of us!

My poor little guy got bitten by an evil, blood-sucking, no-purpose-whatsoever-in-my-opinion mosquito.


We noticed the little bite on his eyebrow last night after about 3 minutes of frolicking in the sprinkler.


We decided to go in because of the way those awful creatures were feasting on Bob. We didn't even notice Little Elvis' bite until after we got into the house.

It didn't look bad last night. This morning, it was more swollen, but not terribly so. Then he woke up from his nap looking like Royal Tenenbaum.


OK, only his right eye looks like Hackman. And Hackman's eyes aren't a purplish-red.


The good news is that Little Elvis picked a cool actor to resemble for a while. I mean he could have picked a certain political pundit.


The better news is that his doctor thinks he's doing fine. He doesn't bother with his eye unless he's tired, and he didn't mind her inspecting his eye. He also took his medicine very well.


Since his little eye (maybe I should call it a slit?) looks so sad, I decided not to take any pictures and post them.


Mosquitoes suck. If you haven't guessed, I hate the little buggers. Guess I need to start using Little Elvis' mosquito repellent.


I think I will write tomorrow about why I haven't been using it more...


If you hate mosquitos, feel free to comment. Maybe we can start a little mosquito haters club called the Skeeter Beaters.

oooooo... sign me up for Skeeter Beaters!! I hate them too. One time when I was younger, we were camping and I wanted to go in the pool with my brothers and other family friends that were swimming and they wouldn't let me in the public pool b/c I had so many bug bites, they didn't know what it was so they couldn't let me swim. We tried to tell them they were only bug bites, b/c I would get eaten alive... but they just said nope...sorry, we believe you but we can't take that chance, and besides we have NEVER seen anyone with that many bug bites. ugh.

thankfully now I don't get bite up as much... and my kids don't seem to either!!

yuck.

hope Little Elvis' eye is doing much better today!!

HUGS!!!

FYI for backyard fun:
Cutter's Bug Free Backyard Spray.
It hooks up to the waterhose, and lasts for about 3 weeks. It TRULY makes a difference.

Oh, poor LE! And yes, it could be much, much worse. He could look like Bill O'Reilly or even Karl Rove. That would be awful.
