Chase’s sister Tara is in town this weekend, so we have been very busy trying to fit everything in while everyone is here. Friday all the women got together for a lunch without husbands or kids, Saturday morning we had a baptism and a baby shower in the afternoon, and for Sunday (today) we have a baby blessing in the morning and a big family dinner in the afternoon. Sam’s birthday was Wednesday, and Brad’s birthday is Tuesday I was going to do a birthday party for both of them this weekend but there just wasn’t any time left for it. So we planned on taking birthday cake to family dinner and singing to the boys and letting them open a present or 2. But…. I am sitting here typing instead of sitting in church for the baby blessing. This morning i woke up and went to the boys room to get Sam out of his crib when Brad starts complaining. “mom, i don’t feel good. I had a bad night. I need a bowl.” “did you throw up last night?” “no, i didn’t throw up until right now” and it starts coming out- thankfully he wasn’t looking right at me as he was talking, and it was all clear and limited quantities since he had only gotten a small drink of water by that time. Now he is so sad since he was going to get birthday cake and get his birthday card from grandma and grandpa today, and he really wanted to see Sam open his present we got for him. So I sent Chase on with the other kids while me and Brad hang out and watch the Disney channel. And this his current status report- he has eaten a plate of scrambled eggs, some marshmallows, a pop tart and a huge cup of grape juice and hasn’t thrown any of it up- he only did that 1 time. Now…. do I let him go to the party? Is he really sick or was it just a fluke that he threw up that one time? And if he was sick- shouldn’t all that food have made his stomach more upset? Instead now he is acting normal. I worry that other moms will get upset if i bring him, but i don’t want him to miss the fun either.
