The thing about my kids is they have a hard time keeping things to themselves. Especially when they get carsick. On the car ride down to VA Samuel threw up everything he had possibly consumed in the past week. Thank God Alexis was with us! We stopped at Starbucks and I stripped the boy and threw the clothes away- they could not be salvaged! And Mike and I bathed him in the sink. But the car stunk so badly. I thought I would pass out and it was everything Alexis could do to keep from turning green. she had her head buried in her pillow but I know it wasn't enough! We were able to keep Samuel hydrated and so all was well.
The ride back... we stop at dinner for Chick-fil-A. Libby desperately wants some ice-cream. I told her to eat her chicken and fries first. Well, she tried. And then it all came up. Two chairs and the floor... completely covered. GrOSS!!!! Why didn't anyone tell me being a mom could be so gross! After she was sick she begged for ice-cream. She didn't get the fact that throwing up elimnated the dessert option.
Today...Libby pushed Samuel back into the doll house. He banged his head. I first thought the crying was from the pain and then I saw it. Blood on his curls. He had scraped the top of his head. Nothing that a wet paper towel couldn't cure but I could hardly handle it. It's not that I'm normally squeamish... I just think I want everyone's bodily fluids to be kept to themselves!
I do look forward to sharing some pictures of the time with Alexis, our trip in VA and family pics, etc.... Another time. When I don't feel so nauseous.
