Ants...and how they led to a cute thing Muffin Man said

We were straightening the living room and I was putting two of Muffin Man's cds away in the carosel when I noticed a little movement under the DVD player.

We have ants.

They're carrying crumbs and marching in a little line out from under the rug to under the DVD player, out from under there to a clump by the wall. We see that they have some food back there and Mr. Spock diagnoses the food source. "Tortilla Chips." he says.

Muffin Man says, "I ate some tortito chips the other day. They were magic tortito chips. The tortito chips had wings and the tortito chips could fly and I ate the tortito chips and they flew ooooooout of my tummy and I ate the tortito chips and then I could fly too."

So, at the same time that I am completely grossed out about the ants (getting traps ASAP!), I am complete plotzing from the cuteness of my son.

Just want to let you know that the ants are bad everywhere this summer. Almost everyone I know is battling them in some way, shape or form. Good luck!

Ugh -- sympathy on the ants. We have carpenter ants, for a change. But they don't eat torito chips.

Muffin Man is soooooooo cute!

I want some magic tortito chips! I'd love to be able to fly!

I can totally sympathize! I've found food in the strangest places. My kids are really quite creative!

Too cute.

We had ants last summer. SUCKED. HARD.

I'd give you advice, but it took forever even with the traps. And vinegar. And every other crap home remedy we could find.

Good luck.

Sorry about the ants, but MM is so cute! Tortito chips - I might start using this word.

We had ants a few months ago too, but after we did some thorough scrubbing, they disappeared. I fear they have just moved on to a place where we can no longer see them. AAA! I am freaking myself out!

MM sounds adorable.
