What a day....now I have a sick kid.....ain't life grand?
I didn't think this day could get any worse...but, I come home to find my eight year old running a fever, lathargic, lying on the chaise...not wanting to eat, etc...etc....This is a kid that takes a pill every night for ADHD, but can not swallow liquid medication to save his life...top it off...he won't chew Junior strength chewables either....so,knowing I had to get his fever down, or end up in the E.R. before the nights out, I poured a couple teaspoons of kids Tylenol fever into a medicine cup, grabbed a couple of strawberries, and approached him to try and get it down him...between a bite of strawberry then a teeny tiny little "lick" of medicine, this process was taking forever..one teaspoon down, with one left to go...the worse possible thing happened....I am sitting at the front of the chaise, telling him, "just don't think about it...just take it quickly" when he threw up...."IN MY FACE!!! HE HURLED ALL OVER ME!!!!" I have dealt with many things being a Mom...I have cleaned up my fair share of puke, pee and poop....but to have someone puke...in your face....there are no words...I love the little guy, I hate that he is sick...but, this day? Is truly one for the record books.....Once again, Can I have a do over?
