I had a different idea in mind for todays post, but as I sit down to write I am exhausted both physically and mentally, and the last thing I feel like I can write about is FUN. Because today, was the opposite of fun.
What is the opposite of fun?
Watching your helpless one-year old throw up for the first time. Yes, I am officially writing a blog post about throwing up. But I keep in real around here, and today I was up to my eyeballs in throw up.
And not only did my poor baby get sick for the first time, but we were out when it happened, which just made me want to cry. Because when I don’t feel well, the last place I want to be is out and about. Plus, I gave the boys coconut for the first time at lunch, so then I was panicking that perhaps he was having a serious allergic reaction to a tree nut. He does have an allergy to gluten already. So not only am I panicking about having a possible allergic reaction on my hands, but I was completely unprepared!!! Which is so not me; I predict everything and am always prepared for all possibilities.
Apparently all possibilities, except throwing up.
Our days of spit up our long behind us, so I no longer carry a change of clothes in my diaper bag. Mistake number one. I also no longer carry those little bags that can hold clothes, burp clothes, or anything else that may have spit up on them. Mistake number two!
My poor baby walked back to the car without a shirt on to make our trip home. And sadly the throwing up did not end there. Each of use wore several different outfits today. I did many loads of wash, carpets were cleaned, carseats were cleaned; it felt like everything under the sun needed to be cleaned. Not to mention the most important thing; my precious one year old needed a couple baths along the way too!
So I was tired, cranky, so over doing wash, and completely worried about my baby. But as I watch him play, I can’t help but smile. As he runs around chasing the dogs, as he walks up to his brother and gives him pat on the head, as he comes to give me a cuddle, as he plays with his favorite toy.
Here I am feeling exhausted and overwhelmed, and I’m not even the sick one! Yet the one who is sick, is happy. So darn happy!! His giggles, and babbles of, “Mama, bubba, ball.” reminded me that Mary Poppins is right…. in every job that must be done… even the yucky ones involving a sick, throwing up baby…. there is an element of fun!
Also a spoonful of
sugar wine (or really a glass) doesn’t hurt either!!! That Mary Poppins really knows her stuff!
Announcement: There will not be a link-up next week, we won’t be back until August 3rd. When we get back we cannot wait to see what quotes you will share! Keep writing!! XO
