Well. We found a tick on Claire tonight. Which was disconcerting. Surprisingly, I was able to remove it without Ken’s Italian dressing and spent matches. Some of you will appreciate this more than others.
It wasn’t engorged or anything, so it hadn’t been on her long at all. Probably since her afternoon romp in the yard. It was just under her armpit. I tickled her and snatched it out with some tweezers like a ninja. Time elapsed from discovery to removal: 2 minutes. Children harmed in the process: 0. BAM. That’s how we do it up in here. Like a ninja.
