a bee sting and one BRAVE girl

After a fun afternoon at the park with some friends, Berlin disturbed a little bumble-bee while playing and was stung. She was freakin' out and screaming and then we saw the bee buzz away and we knew what had happened. I've never been stung & Finley has never been stung, so this was my first experience with a Bee-sting as well. She swelled a little at first, but by the time we got home the little white bump was gone and in it's place a little red rash. Lucky for us, that's as bad as it got. Phew - no allergies to bees!

The sad yet sweet part about it all was that she was more upset at the fact that a bee could be mean to her than she was about the pain. It took a few minutes to calm her down once stung and after that she was fine, like it never happened. Except that she's talked about the "mean bee making her sad" all night long.
