, forty-seven minutes after Thing 1 woke me up with the dreaded words:
“Mom, I just threw up.”
What is there to learn from this situation? Here’s what I’ve gathered. I’ll let you use your imagination as to how.
-That I need a utility sink
-That the washer only has a limited capacity
-That it’s not good to let the boys sleep together after one of them complains his stomach hurts
-That certain foods just don’t digest quickly or well
-That dogs, as creatures go, are just plain gross
-That vomit is one of my very least favorite things to deal with (I knew that already, actually, but it bore repeating)
-That, one clean bathroom, bedroom, laundry room and hallway later, I have a heck of a lot more fortitude than I give myself credit for.
