I was driving home in the dark, two of the three kids in the back were asleep when Jane asked me to, “Take it Mom… Take it!” This is a normal car request and so I did that awful arm contortion that is necessary to reach a child that is buckled into a car seat directly behind you yet still keep your eyes on the road – and held out my hand.
And that’s when I asked a question I wish I had never had to ask.
Did you just give me throw up?
Judging by her answer, the slime she oozed from her hot little hand to mine and the smell… yes.
And that’s when for the first time in a long time I was happy to still have a girl in diapers. A girl in diapers travels with diapers and baby wipes!
Oh no! Yikes! I hope she is feeling better, but thank goodness for wipes and such.
I actually think it was a fluke gagging on a water bottle incident brought on by a nasty cold. (sorry about the TMI on that) so she is doing good, just sniffly. And I am resolved to try to ALWAYS bring wipes along- not just randomly when I remember like I normally do. That would have been ugly without them in the seat next to me!
I love these posts!
Feel free to start your own Did I just say what I thought I said’s I bet you have good ones too! 🙂
I do but they usually involve a swear word. I’ll think about it.
Oh Jessie! I feel sorry for you – but, I can’t help laughing – between this story and her honesty over the chocolate cake, I just can’t help laughing. I would like to encourage you to write a book on her antics ! Janet Evanowich-style, about parenting instead of New Jersey. It will be a best seller, I am sure!!
I was reading old posts on here and laughing at Clara’s antics. I think if it’s a book it should be about two year olds, they are something else at two…
Oh my goodness! What is it about little kids that they think they must share EVERYTHING! 🙂 Thank goodness for baby wipes – just a suggestion though – you might want to keep them handy, long after your little girl is out of diapers. Just a thought 🙂
I’d like to think I’d be that organized but the truth of the matter is I only remember to bring wipes along half the time as it is now. I’m just glad that night was one of them!
You make me laugh! Priceless.
We are past the diaper phase, but I still carry wipes the car 🙂
Only a mom could have that experience and not freak out, but actually turn it into a blog post!!
