I feel impressed to share my thankful thoughts with you this afternoon. Be kind gentle readers, be kind.
Today I am thankful for:
1. Washing machines. Washing machines that can just be here and sit and wait to be used at random moments. For example when your child throws up all over everything. And I mean everything. Crib, hitting all bedding, himself, the floor and a little bit of me.
2. My husband who forgot his lunch and happened to walk in the door to get said lunch at exactly the right moment so he could take the child off of my hands and I could clean up the horror that was without interruption.
3. Chocolate cake, two pieces, as a reward for making it through said ordeal because of all the vomit experiences I've had thus far with my child, none have been this big or this... everywhere.
Now, lest you should feel sorry for me and this situation, a little background.
Item, 1 sippy cup of orange juice that I could not get the lid off of.
I handed it to David so he could use his superior strength. Even he had a hard time, but eventually got the lid off. I took it, dumped it out and noticed... a smell. A rather rank smell. One could even say a little fermented smell. Upon further investigation, I found out that the sippy cup that I had taken from the fridge this morning with the OJ in it and given to my son to drink for breakfast had actually been left out the day before. But rather than making it to the kitchen sink, it got put back in the fridge in a moment of distraction. I've changed the names to protect the guilty so I shall call this culprit Shcmavid.
Yes my friends. My son was sick this morning and vomited all over everything (after his nap so it was nice and half digested) because his parents had him drink fermented orange juice.
So on to things that you should be thankful for!
1. I have taken the parent of the year award already so all ya'll are off the hook!
Have a fabulous Tuesday and may your orange juice be fresh.
