A stomach bug has been visiting the various members of our family. While not pleasant, it's certainly not been as bad as it could have been.
However, two kids have vomited at school. Lucy is too young to be embarrassed by this.
Theo, while old enough to be embarrassed, is mostly just amazed by the weirdness of it all.
When I picked him up from school after the "incident", he kept wanting to recount to me all the details of how it all went down (or up, as it were).
For example: "It was so weird. One minute I was just going to get a drink and then suddenly I was barfing."
He would keep on talking about it and then say, "Okay, can we PLEASE stop talking about this?!"
And then moments later he would start back in with the contemplative musings about throwing up.
If you're friends with me on Facebook, you already know this one, but I must share it here.
As we discussed WHY people vomit, I told him that it is a way for the body to get rid of stuff it doesn't like or want.
Theo agreed: "Yeah, it's like a yard sale for your body."
