We had a rough morning

This morning I set out breakfast for the three boys and Primo said he wasn’t feeling well and that he had something in his throat. I am not sure what this means but I asked if his throat was sore or hurt when he talked and he said it didn’t. He ate very little and asked to get up and I was a bit short with him telling him that we weren’t having a snack later and that our next food would be at lunch asking if he was sure he was done eating. He was. I emptied his eggs and cereal into the other two boy’s plates and cleaned up his spot. Late in the hallway he said he had something in his throat and then started to cry and then threw up on me as I was getting down to have a look. I got him into the bathroom to finish up and after a couple good heaves he said “There isn’t anything in my throat anymore!” and was pretty happy for a kid that just tossed.

I cleaned up myself and the hallway carpet and tossed all the clothes, towels, and rugs into the laundry basket and got the little man cleaned up. He was immediately better and wanted to go outside and that has held up though out the day. I had the same type of thing on Sunday but I wasn’t immediately better like Primo. He seems to be made of tougher cloth than I am.

    Gotta love it when they hurl on you. Very Monty Python. Although I think the flailing while changing the diaper so their foot goes straight into the poop and then they kick you for good measure so the poop is all over you takes the cake 🙂 Good to hear he’s better though. And you should learn from his example and toughen up for crying out loud 😉

    I know I should, the three year old puts me to shame. And the two year old takes a face plant on the cement and comes up with the biggest knot on his scratched head and say “I ok” while throwing his hands in the air. Not sure these are my kids after all

    Yeah, well, you got three little boys every day. I keep my daughter home from daycare on Wednesday afternoons and on Fridays, and I am a wreck with two kids.

    But then I am only on paternity leave. I know it is ending. I’m not really forced to figure it out.

    Kid’s just have this great ability to bounce back. New site looks great.
