yesterday was a milestone kind of day.
our first stomach bug.
as in trent.
It started mid morning and went on till about supper.
he threw up all over my couch. chair. and favorite embroidered pillow.
he threw up all over the rug. the bathroom. and the both of us.
I put him in the bath.
trying to collect my thoughts. and muster up some courage.
he only got out to throw up some more.
all he wanted was me.
to hold him.
so we did.
on the cold bathroom floor.
he was naked as a jay bird.
surrounded by puke.
we sat there as still as the two of us ever could be.
it was maybe 4 minutes.
I soaked up every bit of it.
I felt like I was official.
a real mom.
not the bake cookies. push a stroller. read a book kind of mom.
but a a throw up mom.
if mom's got patches.
the throw ip patch would be a collectors item.
I am so in love.
