Why Is It?

Why is it when kids vomit they can never get to the toilet? Or just lean over and hit just one spot on the carpet? No, they have to throw up on the bed covers, the sheets, the dust ruffle, and a crap load of stuffed animals. And then when you are summoned at 4 am, you need to do the laundry, and figure out how to launder stuffed animals, and move the mattress to somehow get the dust ruffle without spilling puke everywhere. Now if confronted with this problem at say, 4pm I might be able to figure it out. However at 4am I am just not in my zone and puke ends up everywhere, which of course means more cleaning. Somedays Mom is a pretty thankless job.

I once did this. I ate olive loaf for lunch and drank red Kool-Aid. I passed not one but two bathrooms on the way to my parents' rooms to tell my mom I had to puke...just in time to yak all over her bathroom floor.

She still remembers this.

Some days Mom is a pretty thankless job in your house? It's most days here.

I hope your kids are feeling better and stop puking on stuff.
