Birthday Present?

Jordan went to a birthday party yesterday. The 4 girls in her class at school got together for E's birthday. E had a riding party. All four girls got to ride horses and learn a little bit about taking care of them. E's mom had called and invited Jordan and said she should wear her riding clothes. Since Jordan doesn't HAVE riding close we went with a pair of leggings, a sweater and her new boots. In the states we would wear a pair of jeans to ride horses but here they wear jodhpurs so leggings were more in line with that dress. The only thing Jordan had to borrow was a helmet. Any guesses on where this story is about to go? Well, she had a great time at the riding party. Then they went for pizza and had cake. Party was a success. Fast forward to this evening - bath time. Normally I would have all 3 kids just take a shower - it's quicker. Jordan wanted a bath so I decided why not. I'm glad I did even with what we found. I washed her hair and there in the tub was this little bug. Fingers crossed I rinsed some more and the evidence was clear. The little birthday presents were there!!!! An hour and a half later I think she's clear. The laundry is being done and the kids are in bed.

Ugh, I hate that. My children marinate in rosemary oil (a few drops behind each ear and at the nape of the neck) every morning to ensure that those yicky itchy creepy-crawlies won't want to come visiting!

I don't even get what bugs they are? Does this mean my horsie husband has bugs? Did I miss out on "bugs" when I had little kiddos? Yikes!!!!
