TODAY, we went to the park for HOMESCHOOL PLAYDATE our second time there and alex had been SOOOOOOO EXCITED AND HAPPY to go out there! he had been looking foreward to it all week long! anyway, we get there and he jumps out with his pail and shovel and he takes off for the playground. i have a clear view of him as he sits on the side and starts to play with the sand and there are tons of moms there with their kids. i told him i was getting out the baby and would be there asap...well, as i am pulling out joshua, i hear this CRY and i look over and there is alex RUNNING AND SCREAMING AND CRYING as he looks for me...i call him over and i at first think that maybe someone had taken his bucket away or something but no, as he gets to me, he is COVERED IN ANTS, all over his neck!!!!!! OMG, ONE OF MY WORST NIGHTMARES...and to see them all over him....i was soooooooooooooooooo sad for him! a ton of moms came over to help out and i striped him down and just trying to console him and take care of him at the same time. we got some benadryl on him (he has over 20 BITES on him) and he was just wanting to go HOME! after talking to him and helping him to get over it, he went on to play with his buddies he met last week and have a great time......he didn't want to leave after that!!

but in my mind, i keep RE-LIVING him RUNNING to me with this look of TERROR on his face and him just CRYING AND SCREAMING with ANTS on him!!!! and he had been SOOOO HAPPY AND EXCITED to be GOING over there then to have THIS happen to is like you get a special treat of a BIG ICECREAM that you have been waiting for ALL WEEK LONG then as you get ready to take a big falls down and falls into a big ol' puddle of MUD and it is basically RUINED.....but GOD WILLING he will want to go back next week...i have been slathering him with cold benadryl lotion and giving him oral benadryl to help with the itching....if i can ONLY get it out of my mind.......
