one of the joys of motherhood...
i say that a little bit sarcastically, although i love taking care of my children...when they get sick, i just get a little bit grossed out. i mean throw up sick, other sick i can deal with, but throw up sick, i feel nauseated as well! ethan has no fever or anything, just threw up on the way home from church in his car seat. and i'm not talking about a little bit of throw up, it was pretty prolific. and it smelled...like nasty! okay so i thought maybe he'd had too many fruit snacks or something in nursery that day (because i could see them ALL, in all thier undigested nasty glory, they were red by the way), and then we'd be done with that. so he had some applesauce for lunch and took a nap. then he got up and a few minutes after he got up...threw up again, all over me. it was very applesaucy, in both texture and color...and smell--like rancid apples. pretty gross. so he's been drinking gatorade and sprite (alternately) and he hasn't eaten anything else, mainly because he hasn't said he's hungry and i've been too scared to ask because if he's hungry and he eats....will he throw up again? and what is this stomach bug with no fever or anything? like i said, a joy of being a mother, but it's all part of the wonderful package deal (no sarcasm in that comment, just love:))
