Went to another party today. The children were outside playing in the yard, and Lilia picked up an insect and held it up for me to see. I thought it was a grasshopper or something, but when I got closer I saw that it was a bee! I was a bit alarmed, as bee allergies run in my family. We got her to put it down and our hostess’s adult daughter smashed it with a shoe. Lilia began crying over the death of the bee. I’m amazed she wasn’t stung. Could my little girl be a bee charmer?
