Today was the day ~ Kaitlin's first official BEE STING!
Kaitlin was playing outside, just out of sight, when I heard her start crying. I went over to see what was wrong and she pointed to her hand and cried, "BEE!" I could tell right away that she had been stung. We rushed inside and after some standard Kaitlin drama, she let us put some "medicine" (baking soda paste) on her hand. To my surprise, she held her hand still for five full minutes!
After we washed the "medicine" off and gave her a bandaid, life was good again. The swelling went down after just a few hours, but she talked the rest of the day about "The Bee."
I suppose no kid makes it through childhood without a bee sting.... and when you're as sweet as Kaitlin, it's pretty much inevitable...
