Bumblebees & Allergies

My oldest daughter begins 1st grade this week and of course it's probably a more emotional time for the parents then it is for the kids. You're constanly revisiting memories of the past, but I'm not going to do that here. I'll say just a few things about Emmy. She learned to ride her bike without training wheels a few weeks ago and her scrapes are healing just fine. She's an old pro at it now. She does often act like she knows everything (I dread what she'll be like as a teenager sometimes), but of course she doesn't. We were at the dinner table the other night and somehow the conversation turned to bee stings and allergies. Emmy piped up that she knew her friend down the street wasn't allergic. When asked how she knew this, figuring her friend had just told her that she wasn't allergic to bees, we ended up rolling on the floor with laughter when Emmy replied, "Well I saw her walk right by a bumnblebee and she didn't sneeze or anything."
