mystery reactions at home
seeit2 posted:
DD keeps getting major break-outs from some exposure here at home and I can't figure out where it's coming from. I am so frustrated. I am cleaning everything I can think of but she keeps breaking out, and I think the heat in the house (the AC is out again) is aggravating the situation. (She is sweaty and rubbing her skin which is spreading the contact I think). It's too hot for this shtuff. I've asked DH to take the kids out tonight so I can just scrub down the whole kitchen and playroom to see if I can get rid of it. If that doesn't work then toys are going into quarantine.

Oh my! You have been having a terrible time with your A/C! Hopefully it will get fixed for good soon. Or, it will be Fall, and you won't need the A/C. Although, does it ever get cool in Texas?????

Is Lily still eating the bread with the baked-in milk? Do you think that could be it?

I guess I'd try throwing all the toys in the dishwasher or washing machine. What a nightmare having to go through all of them, though. Ugh.

I put a bunch in the dishwasher and wiped down the rest. Frankly, we should replace the AC but we are too cheap. We have a home warranty and that is paying for all of the service calls and replacement parts - so we are letting it get fixed for free while we save for a new one. We just have to put up with their schedule, which is not always easy. DH's co-workers have been calling him Ebeneezer lol.

No more bread with milk. Mommy can't stand the stress. :)
