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!
