Yes, pests have been pesky in our home the past few weeks. I have been doing my best to rid us of them, but there always seems to be a commando holdout of a renegade bunch or two.

Last night, I looked under the table and saw a fruit loop covered in ants. Deciding that there were surely more under there than just the ones on the fruit loop, I decided to grab the vacuum, rather than just a tissue.

When I came back 10 seconds later, the fruit loop was gone. As I stood there, marveling and scratching my head as to how the ants had taken the fruit loop away so fast, my 18 month old came up to me and hugged my leg.

I looked down at her, and she smiled…

…and there, in her sweet little mouth, was the fruit loop.
