Omg bathroom horror story (almost)

Posted by   + Show Post
So my 5 year old daughter (Sophia) comes screaming out of the bathroom with her pants around her ankles. "Scorpion!! Scorpion!! Mama there's a BIG ONE!!!" Cracking up & thinking I haven't seen a scorpion in months, since it got cold I go to investigate. "Are you sure baby? I don't see a thing." "No mama, it was a HUGE one crawling on the vent above the potty." So I look up, nothing. I look on the floor nothing. Then I look IN the toilet. And yes, there drowning in the toilet is a scorpion close to 2 inches long!! She had been sitting there!! It would have fallen on her head if she hadn't seen it and ran. God only knows why she was looking up. Now we know they're coming back & it's time to start checking shoes & such. Good grief.

We get them too. Every one but me and the baby has been stung. DD got the worst one last summer. It was hiding in the laundry. She wanted to help put the clothes in the washer and it got her twice on her arm. She sick the next day.
