Shit happens, I know it and you know it. And sometimes it happens at the same time as other things, like vomit. I hesitate to say “thankfully”, but it’s better that it was me and not the boys. They wouldn’t have been able to understand what was what and I wouldn’t have been able to do much for them.
Today I was able to hunker down while they ate carrots and watched stuff online. We have a 14yo french exchange student with us this week and he took a nap (because teens stay up late, yo) and probably went hungry, because today was the day I had planned to do grocery shopping.
