Almost Worse

Almost worse than projectile child vomit during breakfast is the hysterical screaming proceeding PCV…not because the child got vomit all over himself and his beloved blanket.

Not because the child got vomit all over the counter where other children were eating and up and down the stools where other children were sitting.

Not because the child feels terrible for his mother who must now reverse out of “10 minutes to get the kids to school mode” and immediately into “scrubbing while dry heaving mode” and OMG she can’t do this AND get the kids out the door in 10 minutes panic.

No.

Almost worse than projectile child vomit during breakfast is the hysterical screaming proceeding PCV because said child is still HUNGRY.

Listening to a five year old scream about being hungry WHILE cleaning up his food filled vomit is enough to send a panicked, dry heaving, crazy mom into a hysterical fit of laughter on the kitchen the floor.

It’s almost worse than projectile child vomit.

Almost.

    Barely almost, huh? So glad I haven’t had to deal with any vomit, from anyone, in a good year (KNOCK ALL THE WOOD FOR NO PCV TONIGHT (and certainly not any that is preceded nor followed by wails of still hungry because um, ew)).

    What an upbeat and positive take on life you have to acknowledge that there could be something worse.

    Mine freezes. She knows she’s going to detonate, and she can’t move. I have carried her like a department store mannequin through the house and plunked her in front of the commode. I HAD TIME. She still can’t eat a McChicken sandwich, though.

    Love that kind of morning!!! Oh, I have soooo been there!!! My daughter actually had pancakes an hour after puking… she was “starving” so I said, well this will surely be the test. Stayed down…thank GOD. ;)
