My poor sweet Sienna was interrupted from her usual patio activities when a not so nice bee sneaked up under her foot last night! At night! Yeah. She was whining and starting to cry-whine. This had been an all day occurrence already, so I was thinking "hush child!" Thankfully, Stephen is such a good dad and gave me a break going over to see what was wrong. She started saying "Ow-E" pointing to her foot. She totally stepped on the bee. So I pulled out the stinger and we tried to ice it. She didn't like that so much, so we resorted to Baking Soda-mixed-with-H2O-paste. Worked like a charm! I felt so bad that I was actually wishing she would be quiet when she was in pain!!
About a half hour later she konked out on daddy's lap while watching "Cars", which, really....NEVER happens. She must've needed that pretty bad. We are also happy to report that for her first bee sting, there were NO allergic reactions! Hooray! For some reason I am pretty sure one of my kids will have a horrible bee sting reaction, so I have Epi-Pen Jr. in our little first aid kit, just in case (yes, I'm totally a "just-in-case-er").
