Twice bitten, Once hysterical!


As I sat down to enjoy my quiet morning off, I hear a panicked voice at the door. "MOM, MOM, OPEN UP!! HURRY- there is an EMERGENCY!!

I run out the door and what do I see?? One hysterical child running towards me. Two red eyes crying and two angry welts, led me to know that a wasp had attacked.

Twice this angry insect attacked my precious child!! The grandfather that watches the bus-stop stated: "Just a little sting is all-- she will be alright. Off to the bus she goes and it will drive out of sight".

Well-- seeing that she had never been stung, I did what any smart mother would have done! She stayed home while I watched for a possible reaction to come. Tylenol, benadryl and cream on the wounds calmed down this frantic child while she watched cartoons.

Okay-- enough rhyming!! I am not a poet after all.

She settled down quickly and no reaction came. We met Joshua for lunch and she still wanted to stay home--- IMAGINE!! A little TLC and off to school tomorrow.

What a way to start a day!!
