The Unfortunate Milestone in My 3-Year-Old’s Life (and in Mine!)
Before sitting down to relax, I had finally gotten my own 3-year-old macho man to bed after a his very first wasp sting.
I admit – today, I was “one of those” parents. Even though it’s pretty common knowledge that far less than 3% of all toddlers have bad allergic reactions to wasp or stings, I was a bit concerned and kept a constant eye on it for quite some time. With the crazy way our world works, who knows.
Knowing that there’s an evil little sac which pushes all the venom out of the stinger as it dies (and into our kids!), it’s always best to get that stinger out of there immediately. Luckily, it was an easy one.
(Look it up on YouTube. It’s a real thing.)
It was a wicked bad sting, though – by those nasty Florida Paper Wasps. Not sure what they’re called. The bastard that got my son was killed pretty instantly (atta boy!), and I made retribution with an entire can of Raid. (Found 5 more nests in the next 5 acres.)
Let me explain how my preparation paid off – before the worst parents of all time video!
The real story I want to share is about parents who are a disgrace to all humanity. But I feel like I need to tell a POSITIVE STORY before I share with you the craziness in the video below.
I had been preparing for this moment for a long time. I probably over-thought this situation, and I never would have imagined that it would have happened today – May 27th as I brought in our groceries. But it did. (Have you noticed that’s kind of how life goes?)
Pity Purchase: Stops the Sting
I started preparing for this a few years ago – I was with Matt and we were at our very first gun show. The booth next to me was selling this ointment called “Stops the Sting.” I don’t think they sold much over the weekend, but they were super nice people and helped us learn the “gun show ropes” that we were invaluable lessons.
So I bought a couple of tubes of “Stops the Sting” as a pity purchase.
You’ve done a pity purchase. We all have. Don’t judge me.
When I came home from the gun show 3 years ago, I strategically placed the bottle in the first aid kit I keep on my counter – secretly vowing to make 100% sure I would’t misplace the “Stops the Sting” bottle just in case Chris got his first real burn from Mother Nature.
We’ve finally found a REAL PRODUCT that does exactly what it’s advertised to do.
Stops the Sting was so awesome that I just HAD to start telling you about it. This stuff needs to be shared on social.
I’m pleased to say that this stuff is incredible. What these people said at the gun show really happened – it took the pain away instantly, stopped the swelling, and saved the day.
This stuff is so awesome, I decided to call the company and resell it – and seeing as how my accountant told me that my relaxation techniques need to actually make some money for once, sign up below for a $5 coupon off this stuff.
