Thankfully, Blogs Don't Have Germs

If germs could be transferred through the computer, you would need to Out Click ASAP!

That sick bug I mentioned (last post) evidently had a cousin that he brought over, as well. Thankfully, we don't get sick often in our household, but when we do, we go down hardcore!

Sunday night I awoke to the sounds of Park coughing and whimpering on the monitor at 2AM. As his cries elevated, I rolled out of bed and stumbled into his darkened room. I rocked him a few minutes, thinking it must have been a bad dream, and attempted to return him to his bed.

It was at this point that I realized his bed was, well, let's just say "contaminated" and that we were about to embark on our first stomach bug journey with Park. If you've read my blog much, you can probably guess what I did at this point.

"CHRIS, PLEASE COME QUICKLY, " I screamed into the baby monitor.

Thankfully, Park has one parent who is not squeamish and does not lose their minds in such circumstances. I had high hopes that in becoming a mother, I would be selfless enough that my own child's illnesses would not bother me in the least. Perhaps the fact that I passed out while trying to dissect a frog in middle school should have been my first clue that this would not be the case.

Between Park's retching and my dry heaving, Chris finally reached his limit and banished me to our bedroom.

It was not my finest hour of mothering.

All in all, though, we survived. Much of which can be attributed to the fact that Park did not get his mommy's "High Maintenance Patient" gene. The kid actually laughed and played between "episodes", maintaining an overall pleasant disposition throughout the entire ordeal. He wanted nothing to do with pity or pampering, reminding me very much of someone else who lives in our house.

So, as Park sits, eating soup from a sweet neighbor who heard he was sick, I am busy counting our blessings. Thank you, Lord, for thoughtful friends and neighbors, a husband with a servant's heart, a son exactly like his daddy, and another sick bug that once again reminded me of all I have to be thankful for.

*And I promise to write something soon that does not include the words retching, sick, germs, or bug:)

I love it! I am the same way. My husband always takes care of the boys. They must know it too because they usually get sick when he's home.
