It finally happened, Duckie was stung by a yellow jacket for the first time while on break tonight at cheer practice. The good news is that it was a very typical sting, no excessive swelling or allergic reaction so far. One of the other Moms is a volunteer firefighter and helped me tend to my hysterical little girl. This was her first exposure so there is now some risk of a reaction with the second sting. She was reluctant, but rejoined the squad for their final few minutes. Her coach was impressed with what a trooper she is. I just feel awful that she was so hysterical. I'm pretty sure she was terrified she'd have a bad reaction. My poor Duckie.
