DISGUSTING!

So Zachary had a hearty meal tonight of cut up chicken nuggets and applesauce. I love it when Zachary eats because he always chews (or gums) what is in his mouth before he will open up again for another bite. But when he is feeding himself, as with the chicken, he puts about 5 pieces in his mouth in one handful. So towards the end of dinner his is coughing a little bit which I figure is because he put too much in his mouth. Next thing I know he sounds like he is gagging so I did the finger sweep and got everything out. He was pretty upset that I just shoved my finger down his throat so I took him out of the high chair and he proceeded to puke on me....TWICE! BLAH! You would think that I would be used to this with an almost 1 yr old. But lucky for us Zachary has never been sick. Yes there was the occasional spit up when he was smaller but he has never "blew chunks" before. I've only ever taken him to the doctor (other than his normal check ups) once for what I thought was an ear infection...but was nothing. So I consider us lucky in that respect. Back in the day when I was preggo, Joe and I decided that I would deal with the poop and he would deal with the puke. Obviously he isn't home to clean it up. So being the SUPER MOM that I am I cleaned it up...and myself up too. I guess when you become a mom the things that used to gross you out or thought would gross you out don't. It is like you are granted some super powers and can deal with it. Or maybe I just haven't encountered the "gross stuff" yet......

Good for you. Its great that you made it through. back when I just had one kid and she was a baby, and we were living with Mom and Dad D. Heather had the flu and had puked on the floor right by me and I got up and said yew gross and walked away. I couldn't help clean it up. Mom wasn't too thrilled with me at that moment. I can't say I blame her, but.. Yuck.
