I Should Have Known



I should have known when...

she whined about the fun part of her homework.
 
I should have known when...

she wanted to lay down and watch a movie instead of playing with toys while she watched.

But I didn't.

I should have known when...

she didn't want to eat popcorn during the movie.

But I didn't.

I should have known when...

she didn't quite make it to the potty in time (it's not like her at all).

But I didn't.

I was in full denial. 

I didn't know until...

it was all over the living room floor, making a trail toward me.

And then it was too late.



You probably already guessed it.  My current misery.  My little sweetie has the yucks.  My hubby is out of town.  My mom is in Florida.  It's just me.  Me.  The one who is in charge of blood, broken bones, stitches, and shots.  I'm not the one who handles the vomit for good reason.  But I am.  I'm doing a good job of it too.  Now, please join me in praying that it only takes out one child and not all four.  And...for good measure...that it doesn't take me down too.

  1. Poor Robin! Those are signs we don't want to recognize. Hope everyone else avoids, but that's not likely to happen. Ugh!

  2. Oh no! Even though it was a bad situation, you made an excellent slice. I can't handle vomit either!

  3. Oh no! Poor kiddie, poor mommy. Hope no one else gets hit. And that she feels better soon.

  4. Yuck!!! Poor little sweetie. Poor, poor you! I'm so sorry. That's a really poetic and beautiful way to share it though!

  5. I will certainly pray on that for you, Robin! I'm in a similar boat (with the laundry situation, not the illness, and the hubby out of town) so I can empathize with what's happening on your home front. I hope all is quiet by tomorrow morning!

  6. Oh, Robin, what a miserable situation! It always amazes me how I can make it through throw up as a mom and teacher when it is something that has always been so horrifying to me. I hope this passes quickly and spares the rest of your family. I love how you built the anticipation in this slice, but am so sorry it has to be about such a very unfortunate subject! :(
