Well, today was full of surprises! As we hurried ourselves to get ready for church, Jaxon complained of a stomach ache (he called it a throat in his belly) and we passed it off as nothing. We got to church just in time to sit in the very back (which turned our to be a blessing) and take the sacrament. After we had been given the water, I ran out to throw away a banana peel and some uneaten string cheese from Sage. On my way back in I heard what sounded like a water bottle being pored out, and a dear ward member had taken Sage from Jake and I thought it must have been Jaxon who spilled it. The only problem with that scenario was that I had not brought a water bottle to church. As I neared closer to the action at hand, I saw Jake carrying Jaxon out as he vomited on a nearby chair.
Now, I can not continue until I tell you about my deep and abiding fear of throw up. This is not your average not liking vomit, this is more. I can't hear it, smell it, or be around it without wanting to vomit myself, and rip all the skin off my body, throw it in the washing machine just to make sure I am rid of the foul substance. It's an intense hate.
So Jake was gone, someone had taken Sage out, and I was left with a pile of bile (hehehe) all to myself. I must thank dear Bridget for immediately lightening the mood.
"At least you'll have something good to blog about!"
Hence, this post.
Another kind soul was quick to help me, and before long it was cleaned up, and I was out the door to start a load of my tainted skin.
Poor Jaxon. While I was gone he told Jake he had to go potty. Just wait until mom get's back, he told him. He asked again, and them lifted up his shirt to look at his stomach, and lost it all. Afterwards in the bathroom Jaxon asked Jake, "What was that daddy??" There is nothing worse than throwing up. It's so unnatural! So now he is sitting on the couch, playing nintendo, with blankets protecting my couch, and a bowl by his side. I know everyone of you mothers out there have experienced this, but today is a first for me.
Wish me luck!
