My boy's going to be a nurse!

  1. Yeah, ok so I get a hair in my hide and decide to take my 6 y/o (Luke) and 10 y/o (Dommenyque) boys on a "date". Decent restaurant, lots of family members (Red Robin), and I have already worked for 16 hours. I am tired and want comfort food. So, I decide I really need cheese sticks for an appitizer.

    Uggggggg, so each of us gets 3 cheese sticks. I wolf mine down in nothing flat. The kids decide to let theirs "cool off".

    Uggg, so my 6 year old takes a large bite. And swallows. And begins to choke. He is able to spit everything out, looks at me and says MOM, I AM FIXIN' TO PUKE!!!!

    And he does. All over the table, all over all our food, all over the floor, all over the next table, do I need to go on?

    So we go to the bathroom, get cleaned up, and come back out to find my 10 year old with my purse in his lap eating a pizza the waiter brought out to replace our food.

    I have to say I am happy Luke was safe, but surprised Dommenyque would eat the way he did. Is he going to be a nurse or what?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?! LOL

    So, Luke seeing older brother eating, grabs a slice and digs right in. ROFLMAO. What else could I do but jump right on in?

    Yep. Only a future nurse could watch someone vomit and turn around and eat pizza.

    Of course, I'm the type that can vomit and immediately eat, so I don't know what that says about the other kid. LOL

    Within 8 minutes. Come on! It was actually a bit of comic relief for me. Boys will be boys, and future nurses will be future nurses. LOL

    Bwahahahaha!!! KIDS!!! Love 'em!!


    Of course, being a PARENT steels one to all sorts of situations. For example:

    There we were: two couples and their four children, four boys ages 2-6, sitting in a Chinese restaurant, eating and gabbing. I'm shoveling broccoli down our youngest as I talk and gesture with my friend S. The two men are talking and eating and talking, the kids are eating and talking about the latest and greatest in their lives . . .
    my little one makes gagging noises . . . seems I've shoved a little too much broccoli into the open mouth, before checking to make sure it was empty. . .

    From out of that mouth comes all that half-chewed broccoli! I cup my hands with a napkin to catch the out-coming broccoli . .. wrap it in the napkin, place the napkin next to his plate. The kids never missed a beat of talking. The men never even glanced over, kept talking and eating and talking. S. and I kept talking and eating . . . NO ONE BLINKED AN EYE, LOL!

    S and I realized what had happened, stopped mid-sentence and burst out laughing till the tears came! I did excuse myself to wash my hand . . .

    But, yeah. Kids. Love 'em!!!
