The "flea mites" are coming!

I was just cuddling with Sarah when I told her the skin on her nose is flaking off a little bit - most likely a result of being outside all last Sunday and getting a little burned.

She looked at me with big eyes and asked: "Are the flea mites going to come and get it now?".

Huh? Ohhh... She was thinking about DUST mites, those little invisible mites that lives in all of ours beds, living on little dead skin particles that fall off our bodies when we sleep...

I can see how in her mind those little critters where going to have a party with all that dead skin on her nose! Cute! (But not so cute with dust mites, they are the reason I wash my bed sheets in really hot water once a week.. Yuck!
