A tender moment...

As I was tucking my younger daughter into bed tonight she looked up at me with her big brown eyes and said,

"Mommy, I love you, because when we throw up you tell us to do it in the
toilet, and when we miss, you don't get mad."

Is that sweet or what?! :)

But seriously, that's what I love about little children. They don't care whether you're good looking, rich or smart.

It's all about the basics; love, nurturing and staying cool when the puke hits the floor!

I told J to stay downstairs on the couch today. "It is easier to clean puke off hardwoods then carpet." I am going for Mom of the year. Compassion and all that crap. He had already "missed" twice!

That is insanely sweet.

See, that's why we have kids.

For comments like that.

Wow, Just last night I told my daughter if she threw up on the floor again she was going to clean it up! She likes to lean over the bedrail and puke rather than climb down and go the the bathroom.

My daughter also hangs over the edge of the top bunk and pukes over the side as if she's on a damn boat as I'm screaming,
"PUKE ON THE BED!"
"PUKE ON THE BED!"

That is so sweet! I always feel so bad when they vomit on the floor, and then apologize!

Oh, the little things.

You mean shoving your daughter's head in a bucket isn't the correct way to deal with puke?!?

I *knew* I wasn't cut out for this parenting thing.

What a sweetie. Love it!

As much as I dislike puke on the floor, I, too, just deal with it nicely, because I know how horrible you feel when you're throwing up. It's the worst feeling in the world to me, so you obviously don't want someone mad and fussing when you feel that bad!

that's PERFECT. love.

Obviously, you're a great mom raising a wonderfully appreciative kid.

Mom on the Run said...

What a good mommy! The only thing I ask is that if you're going to puke, you stay in one place. If you don't make it to the toilet, please don't continue running and blowing chow all over the house.

I think I've already lost Mother of the Year. Again. Rats.

Ok, that's the cutest thing I've ever heard!
