My son sat at the kitchen table as he worked through his mountain of homework. He looked up at me and said, “Mom I don’t feel so well!”
I walked over and felt his forehead, “You don’t feel warm just finish up the last three questions and we will do the rest of the morning.”
It was with a sigh, I gave him a stern look, and made him complete the project. He gave me his puppy eyes and I thought to myself “I am not caving in this time.”
It was an hour later when I heard it, the noise every parent hates to hear, the gag, the cough, the sound of projectile vomit hitting the walls, and carpeted floor!
I took a deep breath, entering the room of vomit, he looked up at me “See I told you I was sick!”
It was as I waded up to me knees in vomit and fighting the urge to lose my own cookies that I vowed to never be skeptical of the words “Mom! I feel sick!”
If I had only paid attention to those simple words – it would have saved me from a three-hour scrub-out from hell!
Have you ever experienced the scrub-out from hell? Did you keep your cookies?
