This morning Sophia decided she was a kitty cat. She crawled everywhere she went and even wanted to eat directly off her plate with no hands! Although I am trying to be consistent with establishing manners, I think sometimes a little imagination serves a bigger purpose. Sophia soon came to me and told me she needed a Benedryl because she had an allergy. She showed me her chest and abdomen which was covered in nickel size welted hives, so swollen they were translucent in color. I believe that she had a reaction to a lingering protein that must had been on our carpet. THIS is why we have the no shoes policy in the house. A bath and a topical Benedryl cleared it up within an hour and a half. It's a scary day when 'our home' is unsafe for our little girl.
