Son #2

 Last week all of the children and I were sick.  We had a 24-48 hour virus that Kaiser told me did not require a doctor visit.  I ambled to the store and I picked up some  Gatorade, juice, water and some snacks. Kaiser said to drink a lot of luids and to get plenty of rest.  I was exhausted and all 4 of  us had to run to the bathroom all day from throwing up.  My middle son didn’t make it to the restroom and I was left to clean up after he had vomited in his bed.   He did not clean the sheets, hje simply put the sheets in the garage near the washing machine.  I asked him if owed me something for cleaning up after him and he smiled.  My 12-year-old appears to be growing taller every minute. Oh well, after I gave him some more medicine, he promptly threw that up. I was cleaning up the first mess and had to come back upstairs to begin the clean up of this second mess.  While I was cleaning my son asked me what I was doing and I told him that I was cleaning his sheets before I put them in the washing machine.  He gave me a kiss. I asked him what was that for and he said because you are a good mom and added; not to many moms would clean up their kids throw up.  I smiled even more and continued my work. He went back in the house.  I smiled and thought what a good kid I have. Not to many kids would take the time to thank their mom for cleaning up after them.
