Bites, bites and more bites



My oldest isn't having a good couple of days. Wednesday he came running to the door saying he was bit by a snake on his arm. When i asked him to tell me what it looked like he said...." At first I thought it was a cat, but then it bit me and it was a snake." How do you mistake a cat and a snake?? No worries we believe it to be just Gardner snake. The same one that bit my middle son last year. It has a taste for kid blood now I guess. LOL! Then yesterday again here he comes this time screaming and crying. Yeah, he was stung by a bee on his finger. Thank God he wasn't allergic. That was the first ever bee sting. Anyway, upon further questioning, I discover that him and the neighbor boy where chasing bees and trying to kill them. My compassion level really dropped after that fact. I mean really, hello! They sting, it hurts, we say stay away from bees they can be really mean. So this all adds up in the male brain to.....Let's chase as many as we can with bats or bucket lids and try to kill them so they can't hurt us first. Seriously, the child is almost 9. We have giant bumble bee's, not the cute little one's buzzing around. Can't wait to see what today brings.

When I read this I called my sister in and said girl he said it look like a cat until it bit him. We laughed so hard your children remind us of our boys. I hope he hasn't ran into any other outside creatures.
