Stop topical steroid abuse!

Playing with bubbles outside should not be stressful, right?


I believe kline is 7 or 8 weeks of the topical steroids!!!

For kline's birthday he got some cool colored bubbles from grandma and grandpa. So yesterday we ventured out in to the back yard to "play" with them.  Right away Kline poured them all over his skin and I freaked out. I didn't know what they heck they would do to his mess of what other people call their skin! 

 So, after I screamed at him for getting that stuff on him and freaked out that he was going to go into a itching uncontrollable fit because of it, we went to play on his play set. I pushed him on the swing for a little bit and then the hot sun was bothering him so he wanted to sit in the shade.  We sat down and all of a sudden the boy was covered in ants, he sat in an ant hill, really, come on!!!!!!  So, yet again another freak out...you know how you get itchy when you see a bug or a bug crawls on you, well, imagine you are already extremely itchy and then on top of that you are cover in ants crawling all over you! 


So after another freak out and strip down from both of us, well, ok, I didn't strip down but it makes for a better story!  We decided outside was way too stressful and we went inside!

Life should not be this complicated for a kid!!!

He should be able to play outside all day, not for 20min full of freak outs!

I hope one day that my itchy baby can once again enjoy this wonderful place that we live in!!!
