Today Daniel was going outside to retrieve a forgotten item. On his way out the door, he stepped on a bumblebee and let out a howl that probably woke any sleeping neighbors. He quickly told me through his tears what had happened, and I put him on my bed and went to the bathroom to collect the “magic spray.” After his little foot had been sprayed and he had been calmed, I said, “I’ll go out and get your shirt.” Immediately he threw his arms around my legs and cried, “NO! The bee will get you too! Just send Jack!”
Poor Jack 🙂
Daniel said, “I just love you and want to protect you.” It was so, so precious. But…poor Jack.
