Debt Busters

Want to become one of the best debt busters around? Learn how to turn a weakness into a strength!

My 3-year-old daughter is all girl. She loves princesses and dress up. She has beautiful blonde hair that she lets me curl. She has piercing blue eyes and a lovely smile.

She also used to be deathly afraid of any bug, even flies. And since we live in an older home in SE Arizona there tend to be a few creepy crawlies here and there. Flies, spiders, weird beetles, etc. If she saw one outside she would come screaming inside, waking up her napping brother, in tears because she saw a bug.

If there was a fuzzy string on the floor she thought it was a bug. She would not go to sleep at night or wake up convinced there were bugs in her bed. This went on for quite some time. We tried all different methods to help calm her fears. We even took her to the doctor thinking something was wrong with her eyesight since she was sure there were bugs in her bed.

Finally my husband had a great idea. He decided to nickname her the “Bug Stomper.” He empowered her to kill the bugs.

Soon after this started neighboring farms started to spray their cotton crop in preparation for harvest. This causes very large black beetles to invade all surrounding areas. So we had some in our yard. To be honest I am creeped out by them. But we thought this is the best test. We told her to go get some shoes on and stomp on these beetles. She DID IT! We were so thrilled. Ever since she has had no problems with bugs.

Sometimes she will be scared just for a second then a light comes on and she says, “wait I’m a bug stomper!” in her little voice. So we now have the cutest little girl in the whole world (I may be a little biased) running around our house saying, “I’m a bug stomper!”
