So I took another crack at being a fun mom and slept on the outdoor deck with my tween last night. I wasn't worried about mosquito bites this time because with the cooler weather, nearly every part of my body was covered. I wore two pairs of leggings, socks and a long sleeve t-shirt topped off by a sweatshirt. I tucked myself into a sleeping bag snug as a bug in a rug with only my face exposed.
Which is where I received four mosquito bites. Including one that nearly swelled my right eye shut.
Next time the boy wants to sleep out there it's dear husband's turn to play along.
