Mommy's Okay, Really.

On Sunday afternoon I went into the nursery to get Cub up from his nap. We settled into the glider like we always do, to rock and sing and wake up. As we rocked and giggled, I suddenly felt it.



Cub clung to me for dear life as I made a beeline for the guest bathroom. I plunked him on the tile and then made it to the toilet just in time. After it was all over, I turned my head, brushed my hair out of my face, and saw Cub still sitting there, staring at me. His eyes were wide and his little mouth was open.

Like, "Mom, that ... was ... AWESOME."

Then he started clapping.

I scooted towards him and he crawled into my lap and wrapped his arms around my neck, patting my back, as he does these days. I squeezed him tight. Sure, this round of nausea will be tougher with a little Cub in tow, but it might be a little sweeter to have my cute little man there to give me a hug when all is said and done.


  1. Awe, sorry you are sick. Nausea sucks. So adorable that he clapped for you!

  2. Aww, sweet boy. Glad you made it to the toilet in time. ;)

  3. Oh no! I'm sorry to hear that! My friend takes a phosphorus supplement that she mixes with water that she got from her nutritionist and apparently it makes a world of difference in the morning sickness area.... Good luck - hope it's not too bad!


  4. I know that exact face that Caleb gave you after you's priceless. I hope your nausea doesn't last too long!

  5. That is PRECIOUS! (Not precious that you had to throw up, but nice to have a cheering section!) During my few bouts with the toilet Weber would come and sit right next to it and just look at me with her head cocked to the side and a concerned expression. Maybe I should train her to hold back hair... ;)

  6. How stinkin' cute is it that he clapped! Sorry you don't feel well sweet girl...

  7. I hope it passes for you soon. That doesn't sound like any fun at all. I wonder if the reaction would've been different if Cubbie were a girl!
