A couple weekends ago we celebrated our baby’s second birthday with our families. Stella had such a wonderful time, we had a yummy meal, and lots of fun even though we also got rained in and had a rather terrifying experience.
I’m serious. Terror ensued. Everything got set up and ready outside but just before we were about to sit down to eat, it started to rain (ugh) so we quickly moved the whole party inside. Luckily I had already gotten my pictures (phew!) and we had plenty of room to still set everything up all pretty inside.
But, just after moving everything inside and just before dinner was ready, we saw a bee.
Then we saw another one. And after we took care of that one we saw three more. After killing about 15 bees, things finally settled down and we ate our dinner, opened Stelly’s presents and had cake in peace. Now, maybe my telling of the story doesn’t sound so terrifying but it is because bees are the WORST. They are my literal biggest fear. Well, to be fair, wasps and yellow jackets and the like are the actual worst. I love bees because they make honey and honey is my favorite thing ever. But still, they’re all kind of similar and they all fly and can really hurt you and so that’s scary.
I’m terrified of bees because I’ve been stung (more correctly bit) on at least six different occasions and on every single one, I got 5+ stings. That’s right, I’ve been downright attacked by bees more times than I can count on one hand and for that reason, they are so much scarier than spiders, mice, snakes or anything in the ocean. haha JK, I refuse to get in the ocean because everything in there is so much scarier than a bee. I’m a wuss.
And, just so you know, the party didn’t end with no bee incidents. The birthday girl, our sweet and happy Stelly, got stung at the end. There was a docile bee crawling around on the floor and was blending in perfectly so we didn’t see it. It may have been hit before and didn’t die or it may have just been tired cus it was late at night by this point. Either way, poor Stella was just sitting there and then the saddest crying I’ve ever heard and my heard broke and now she is scared of bees too :(
