Only other mamas can truly appreciate this and I had to share:


Sometime in the night our 5 year old came into our bed.  We were all sleeping, but I must have heard something because I suddenly sat up, pulled her into sitting position, and cupped my hands in front of her face just as she vomited up everything she ate for dinner.  Mamas, I caught ALL OF IT.  No soiled pajamas. No bedding change.  No 2 a.m. bath to rinse a vomit-covered child.  Honestly, it felt like winning Olympic Gold.  I know all of you have had similarly triumphant feelings over seemingly un-triumphant things.  We are AWESOME!  

Mama to F (3/09) and S (3/11); and never forgetting my babe gone too soon angel1.gif(4/10).

Lol, way to go! Intuition, reflex and plain old practicality; Mom saves the day (and night) once again!

Wow! You're awesome.

A couple of years ago when dh stayed in hospital with 2yo dd who had pneumonia, he was doing a great job catching her vomit. He was beaming with pride when he told me how impressed the nurses were.

I hope your little one is feeling better. Ninjas need some rest too.
