It's Not Funny Mom!


Yet again I fail at Best Mother award.

But I can't do puke. I mean I know I have to because it's in the job requirement, but I can't do it w/a closed mouth.

I'm one of those ones that will sympathetic gag. I smell it and I'm gone. I usually just start gagging...that's about it. Over the past 14 years I have cleaned up some doozy messes!

My kids probably hate me when they are sick. Which thank you Lord is not often.

Here's a scenario

Kids "Mommy I don't feel good"

Me "Does your tummy hurt? Do you need to go poo poo?"

Kids "No, I think I'm gonna puke"

Me "No you don't...don't think about it...think positive thoughts"

Kids "No really......" (get weird look on face)

Me "RUNNNNNNNNNNNN RUNNNNNNNNN LETS GET IN THE BATHROOM QUICK. Aim for the toilet"

Kids (retching sound)

Me "OHHH MAN THAT'S NASTY"

Kids (retching) "Mom I can't help it (retching)

Me "OH gosh Honey..I know...Mommy doesn't OH MAN THAT SMELLS...OHHHH I mean Mommy knows it sweety. I'm sorry...ewwwwwwwwwwwwwwww"

Kids (retching) "Mom"

Me "I'm sorry honey...it's not your fault...it's just gross"

(now this is the worst part...I start laughing....like total all out giggle...no idea why...maybe nervous...maybe part b/c it's a funny thing the body..puking....i mean you can't stop it...it just comes out ..which is kind of funny)

Kids (done puking) "Mom, I'm done now you can't quit laughing"

I know how horrible it is for me to giggle..I really try to stop. I guess it's my mommy defense ...and how I psych myself up to clean the bathroom.

Then I run around like a mad woman w/the can of Lysol spraying everything in sight. I keep the poor sick kid quarantined from the rest of the house. I just can't stomach (haha)the thought of having it pass to all the other kids.

Why the puke topic? Got a call from the school a few minutes ago that child #2 puked! Ugh! He looked pretty happy when I came. Said..."hey mom I made it to the trash can and no one from school saw but the nurse" haha good boy!

Hahaha... I hate puke too. Mostly I hate it when my oldest gets sick because he is 10 and he FREAKS out before it comes up. We are talking runing in place, yelling "No mom! No Mom! I don't want to...I don't want to!!" I feel like screaming "Pull yourself together, boy! It's coming whether you like it or not!!"
My husband is the one with a weak stomach. He is always gagging. It cracks me up.
Hope you all start feeling better soon.

I hate puke too. Makes me want to upchuck. I start gagging at the smell. That scenario is too funny though. It made me laugh. :-)

Have a great, Puke-free day!

I hate puke too!

jen said...

Puke is the one thing that always makes me even more grateful for a washer and dryer.
Here's to electricity. You're gonna need it, I think.

Mara said...

ugh I hate puking too! I can imagine laughing in defense too haha

Together We Save said...

I hate puking but I do handle it pretty well.... and I am a Lysol freak!!

K said...

Puke is gross. I hate it when one of my students does it. My body wants to be sympathetic with them. Darn my gag reflex.

carissa @ lowercase letters said...

thank goodness he left the puke (hopefully) at school and not your house!!! i don't blame you... it is sick nasty. i haven't had to deal with kid puke yet (knock on wood) but i'm sure not looking forward to it.

Angie S said...

Puke is very hard for me too. I wish I could giggle...I'm a non stop gagger! I can't stop! Ughhh!

Much More Than Mommy said...

Poor things! (You included!) We had a touch of that here! My usually sensitive stomach turns to steel when my girls are sick, though -- I don't know if I'm thankful for that though, because The Husband doesn't have to take care of them if they're puking!

Jenn said...

eeww the worst is after they have had milk to drink. Oh my does that smell awful. I can handle puke pretty well, example, was taking my daughter to daycare right before I headed off to work and she spewed all over me. Yuck, but I handled it. I cleaned her up and we headed back home. When its milk it is sooo not handled well.

Kristin said...

My Mom was the same way! I can totally do puke...Poop is where I gag!

Hello! I'm Kate. said...
