My poor Ephey is sick:( It always makes me so sad when this happens. He started throwing up around 11:00 last night. Kids don't always know what is best for them- but they ALL think that they do. So, here is the conversation we had last night at around 3 AM.. when he woke up thirsty.
Ethan: Mom, I need some milk.
Me: No, Ethan, milk will just make you throw up- you can have tiny, tiny sips of water.
Ethan: No, Mom- I really need milk. It won't make me throw up.
Me: Ethan, you are sick- it will make you throw up.
Ethan: Mom! Milk makes me go pee in the potty, not throw up.
Me: Ok, I'll get you some milk in a sippy cup
Ethan: (after I give him his sippy cup with milk in it) Thanks Mom!
Me: K- I love you, try to go back to sleep.
Ethan: (not 10. minutes later) Oh boy, MOM! You were right! (after he threw up all of his milk)
Hey- he now knows he will throw up his milk if he is sick:)
Today he has been much better- he only threw up a few times this morning- and has been able to keep down his yogurt... and now he is napping. Let's hope it doesn't go around!!
