Never High-Five a Honey Bee!

My little guy (5) had been asking questions about why the honey bees kept going in and out of the flowers.  I explained that they were getting nectar to take back to the hive and make honey.  My little guy was so delighted that he ran off to thank the bees.  I thought he would just say thank you, but my ears were soon met with screams.  Apparently, my little guy decided to try and give a honey bee a "high-five" for making one of his favorite foods!   Poor little guy!  Now his hand is all swollen and he feels rotten.


  1. Oh, poor little guy! He must really like honey!

  2. O how cute and how sad all at the same time.


  3. Oh poor guy- that is so sweet and so classic all at the same time.

    Don't forget that one- write it down somewhere. It's a good story to tell when he's grown.

  4. Ouch! Poor guy, but also funny/cute!

    My in lap 3 year old wants to make his letter


    Thanks for indulging him. : )

  5. That is so sweet. I feel badly for him that it ended poorly.
