I was wondering where our ants have been coming from, as I've been absolutely scrupulous about cleaning the leftovers Jaxon flings from his high chair. Well, today, the mystery is solved. I found tiny bits of food behind my darling 4-year-old's bed, with countless black ants feasting. And during dinner tonight, he was setting little bits of dinner on the linoleum and watching them eat....when I asked him why he had fed the ants, he had a somewhat logical reason. Apparently, it's a fascination/fear thing. It turns out he was feeding the ants to pacify them so that they wouldn't bite him!
