Last night I was returning from a perfectly enjoyable day in B.C. and at approx. (9:30 p.m.)...it fell apart.
I spent the afternoon doing fun things only: Got my hair done (love love Tami W.) did some shopping, visited both Gma's, some friends and topped it off with a gigantic salad and slice of fresh peach pie from Maddox:)
My way home wasn't quite as perfect.
I heard wierd noises coming from my backseat. I, of course, was chatting on my cell phone with the hubby...and before I realized what was happening....I felt/smelled/heard Puking. It was pitch black, I was attempting to coast the 35 mile drive home on an Empty Tank (because Jarom fills my car with gas....and I hate too) I was on the freeway...and my son showered himself, his carseat and my right arm (amongst other things) in Vomit. (also previously known as chocolate milk & pizza)
Luckily I located the flashers...pulled over while cars sped past me at 90 mph and proceeded to encourage him to aim into his beloved "Yellow" blanket next time. (It's a member of our family and is commonly referred to as Lellow:)
The smell....oh the smell.
That was throw-up #2 in his lifetime...so I'm still not comfortable with the thought of my child being sick. THAT sick, especially.
I was also NOT comfortable with the darkness the LOW FUEL light flashing the sounds of gagging and splattering..the inability I had to comfort or hold him...or exit the car. The list goes on. I'm weak. It was way past my ability to handle.
But I survived.
I wiped him up...plugged my nose, cut off a semi and made it home (on fumes) in 12 minutes:)
Jarom spent the next 45 mintues scrubbing the carseat:):)
Today we stuck around the house and played with my favorite toy #2...in a hopes to get well!
He's sorta kinda feeling better....after 4 days of this fun:)
It's darling and teaches them hand/eye coordination, shapes, colors, etc.
He spent a good 3 hours (on and off) today playing with it!
...you need it....
We're heading out for a walk...we need some sunshine and a change of scenery.
The couch, TV and computer are getting old:)
