Carmine quotes No. 17 : Mrs Malaprop strikes again

Tuesday, and yet more rain. There are mushrooms mushrooming on the curtains...

Here in Carmine, we're suffering an unusual plague of mosquitoes. Too much rain and not enough bats, perhaps. 

Says B, aged not-quite-four, and scratching yet another inflamed mosquito bite : 

"Mama, I'm covered in molehills. It must be the mozarellas....!"

Eeeeww mosquitos...I hate em!! My husband would tell you that what you need to do is hire me...mosquitos LOVE me and when we go out no-one else gets bitten! (Seriously, he was threatening to hire me out when we lived in Thailand!). Love your son's comment...priceless :-)

Ps. I've never heard the expression Mushrooms mushrooming before...

Those blasted mozzarellas they are here at our house too. My kids get molehills all over their legs and arms.
Very cute!

Oh, I do like the funny things children say!

Hope the sun comes out for you soon.

Mozzarellas and molehills, certainly time they left us all alone to enjoy summer!

LOL!! Kids say the cutest things! Apparently if you carry one of those dryer sheets like Bounce on you in a pocket, the skeeters don't like you. Don't know if you have them over your way!
