It’s HOT in southern New Mexico during the summer months! I feel sorry for the kids, because they love to play outside, but during the summer months I don’t allow them to go outside until the evening rolls around. So about two years ago my husband and I built them a fun little playhouse in the backyard, really it’s more like an apartment. They have a bed, table, chairs, TV, radio, DVD player, and an AC!
This year Mattie and Vayda were always in the clubhouse. I let them spend time in the clubhouse during the day because they have a little window until that keeps it nice and cool. It’s been a great way to let them get out of the house, without letting them spend too much time in 115 degree weather.
About 21/2 weeks ago, the girls stopped going outside to the clubhouse, and started using all my old boxes to make a clubhouse inside. I swear my kids like BIG boxes well than they do what is inside 9 times out of 10. Anyway, I asked them why they were not playing in the clubhouse, and my youngest daughter says all dramatic, “Mom, the clubhouse is riddled with ants!” Which means, she thinks she saw one ant, and wants mom to use that stuff that gets rid of the bugs, because NO BUGGY MESSES WITH MY GIRLS, lol. That’s what I used to tell Mattie when I would take care of buggy business for her, and it’s just sort of stuck.
I’m have to say, Vayda and Mattie really did a great job turning a big box into a clubhouse. They even had all the adult sign in, and when Vayda asked Mattie to take it outside, Mattie wouldn’t do it because she was scared of the ands that riddled the clubhouse, lol.
Thank goodness, I have Hot Shot® Insecticides, because I was able to spray their clubhouse for ants. I had to let Mattie stand outside and watch me, because she didn’t think I was really going to spray the clubhouse, lol. Poor Mattie is scared of bugs, anytime a situation comes up where she sees a bug, in order for her to believe you took care of the situation she has to see it.
Since we cannot put up a little sign that says “no bugs allowed “Shawn (my husband) and I try to always have a can of Hot Shot® Insecticides in the garage. There is no way I’m going to let bugs feel at home in my home, or in the kids clubhouse!
The girls were back out in their clubhouse in no time, thanks to Hot Shot® Insecticides they were not stuck inside and I have not lost my sanity, lol.
