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.

  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.
