stung!

We were at the MIL's house the other day when the little man had another incident. He was crouching down like he was trying to pick something up when I heard a very loud scream. I ran to him while he was running away from me screaming like a nut. Yes, I have a toddler who panics every time he gets hurt. The husband was yelling at me (again!) for not keeping an eye on his son. Like I could stop him from getting hurt all the time? I mean, he is a kid. He is liable to get hurt over things he does no matter how I keep a close eye on him because he does not have any sense of self-preservation at the moment. When I got hold of the little man his left index finger was starting to swell. The SIL said it was most probably a bee sting. What I was worried about is that what if it was a snake that bit him (or stung him or whatever it is that snakes do). I was relieved when I saw there was only one red spot which ruled that off. He must have seen a bee and decided to pick it up. Dumb I know but my son loves anything that walks, crawls or flies. I blame it on Diego and Dora really but I could not say that to the husband who was angry at me for what happened. His aunt made him hold a cold water bottle which might have lessened the pain because he was fine after that. While I was sitting near them feeling dumb. I still have a lot to learn when it comes to parenting. I don't know if I will ever be good at it although I try as much as I can. There is one thing that is disturbing though, he always gets hurt at Mamaw's. Now I am starting to be afraid to go there again. Who knows what the little man will get into next time. I do hope there will be no untoward incident that will happen.
