“Come sit on the bee, honey.”
“I’ll lift you up.”
“Be a good boy and sit on the bee, John.”
“Just quickly so I can take a picture for your nanny and poppa.”
“No, Mommy. Scary.”
“It’s just pretend, John. See? Mommy’s petting the bee.”
“Mommy sit on bee.”
“Don’t be ridiculous. Here, stop squirming. I’ll just put you on for a second. It will be fun.”
“No. Bees hurt.”
“Fine. Be silly about it. No picture for your grandparents. That’s not very nice.”
John wipes the hot tears off his cheeks and picks a flower.
“I take this for them.”
