Just a quick update. Monkey has survived the Yellow-Jacket Stinging Incident. So well, in fact, by dinner-time she had completely forgotten about it, except to tell Trey when he got home (and I even had to remind her, then).
Final verdict: I like using baking soda on bee stings. It works. There wasn’t even a dot where the stinger went in and all swelling was gone within a couple of hours. Also, I’m thankful to know she isn’t allergic!
Now, on to birthday party planning, back to school planning, puppy classes (yes, we still have the puppy) and the regular day-to-day life of a socially driven mom who loves to “do things” instead of stay home and clean. Who wouldn’t, right?
