Here’s a quick Wednesday tidbit from this mom:
Nathan has always had a sensitive gag reflux. If he coughs really hard, he might throw up, especially if he has a coughing fit right after he eats. Now thankfully, Nathan isn’t sick very often, so this has only happened a handful of times. But it does happen.
It appears that Joshua has inherited this lovely trait too. Both boys have a minor cough now, after getting over a cold, so that’s why this has come up.
Last night, after he finished his last bottle, Joshua started coughing and then threw up. I was holding him of course, so it went all over me. But even better, he happened to grab my shirt and pull it out in the exact instant of throwing up, so he puked INTO my shirt and all down my chest. And while I’m sitting there in disbelief (“he didn’t really just throw up all down IN my shirt?! Oh my goodness, he did!”) Joshua looks at me and cracks up laughing. He thought it was the funniest thing. I’m glad someone did! Not that I couldn’t help laughing myself either. Sometimes, you just have to.
You really do see it all when you’re a mother.
Okay, back to your regular scheduled programming. Just had to share that little moment…
