It's flu season. Every year, the nasty little bugger doesn't stop until it has hit each and everyone of us it seems. Today it snuck in my house at dinner time. I only had three little ones at the dinner table today. Two girls and a boy. I was standing at the sink washing up a few dishes while the kids were eating when I heard one of the girls sitting next to the boy say, "**** threw up in his spaghetti!" I turned around and ran to the table with two seconds to spare before round two came. I encouraged him to lean over his plate, as I didn't want him to get it all over himself or my upholstered chair. (I had no idea I would be doing dc when I purchased that dining set!)
The little girl who made the announcment never stopped eating. But after round two, she paused for a few seconds, looked at his plate and said,
"He's gonna need more spaghetti."
She was just tellin' it like it is. But, she made me laugh when I least expected it. Puke and all, it made my day.
*For the record, I took away ALL the plates and gave the girls NEW dinners AFTER I bleached the entire table, chairs and floor down! I won't go down without a fight! (The little boy's dad came within minutes and took him home.
Hope he feels better soon!)
