My sister decided to give me a little break yesterday and take the girls to see a movie. Here they are all excited and ready to go!
My sister also picked up a diaper sprayer for me. Thanks sis! I had been using disposable wipes and flushing them down the toilet (which you're not supposed to do!). So in an effort to go more green, I have been slowly making cloth wipes out of some old cotton flannel blankets we have around. With the new sprayer it will be super easy to just hose them off and throw them in a pile with the dirty diapers.
However, my astute sister, when dropping off the sprayer said that the first thing she thought of when she saw it was that my kids would soak the bathroom, each other, etc. I thought, oh crap! You are soooooooo right! In other words, flooded bathroom pictures coming soon.
In other news, I have been searching for a natural ant killer. My kids play in the backyard a lot. Also, we have chickens. And, of course, we get ant piles pretty often. I wanted something to kill the ants, yet not harm my children or our beloved pets. Here is what I am trying.
It is food grade diatomaceous earth. I read about it online and saw some pricey organic ones I could have shipped to me, but I found this at the local feed store and figured it would work fine. I don't know about y'all, but whenever I put food scraps out for the chickens, they are almost immediately covered in ants. Supposedly, this stuff can be sprinkled in the coop to control ants and flies. Anybody know much about it or ever tried it?
