My friend Jenny showed me this cute ladybug bedding that she was going to get her daughter and I instantly fell in love. So when I found out that I was having a girl, I just had to get this bedding (this picture is just the online picture... my nursery isn't that cute).
The sheets are pretty cute too. Below is a picture of what they look like. It is basically a bunch of little lady bugs that are pretty much the actual size of real ladybugs. I lovED this bedding. So then, what is the problem? Well let me tell you...
After we moved to Chicago, and after we got this adorable bedding, we realized it is not so adorable anymore. Why? Please see the picture below. These so called lady bugs are actually Asian Lady Beetles that just happen to look like ladybugs and they are EVERYWHERE! During the winter they tend to migrate into light colored homes (since they resemble rocks where they usually go) and since I live in a light colored home, I see them in my house quite a bit... and mostly in Lyla's room. So now, I have to be really careful when I set her down or pick her up to make sure her sheets aren't "moving". I know, it's pretty gross and disturbing.
Hopefully with spring coming we will see less of these unwelcome guests.
