Tick… tick….

No, not a clock… unfortunately.  The creepy, crawly, Lime Disease and Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever kind.  I was the first after a hike at the In-Laws “Old Place.”  Oh yeah… I also got poison ivy, lovely:)

We went over to the neighbors the other night and the kids played in the woods.  During baths something told me to check Princess a little more carefully… Bingo!  A big old tick in her hair.  The CFO took that one.  So while I was finishing up with Princess the CFO stripped down Dash and Bruiser to do a thorough tick check.  She found one on Dash.  This was no ordinary tick.  This was a ninja special agent tick.

So I geared up and took this one.  It seems this guy had already dug in and it seemed to bother (hurt) Dash a bit, based on his scream.

So I did what every Dad would do, I said “give me your finger.”  His next comments…. “Is that my blood?  Cool!  Look guys, my blood!”  That’s my boy:)
