I loaded up the boys this morning to head to the mall for exchanges and valentines gifts. We were having a laid back time and we decide to head to the food court for some Chick Fila. My mouth was literally salivating for it all morning. I walk past this table full of moms and toddlers. They stop me to check out my stroller because they all want one. They realized that I had a 6 week old and said, "Wow, You really have it all together". I smile half way and thought, "If they could see me at home!". Those were the famous last words because I was about to lose control.
I get Keegs and I some yummy nuggets and get us all situated at our table. I put him in his high chair, start unloading the bag, and all of a sudden Keegan throws up over and over again. It is coming out so fast that I feel so helpless in this situation but at the same time it felt like it was happening in slow motion. Poor Keegan was so sad and all I wanted to do was hold him. He is completely covered from head to toe and so is the table, high chair and floor. All I have are burp rags and that does half the trick in cleaning it up. I completely strip Keegs (minus the diaper and socks) while looking around at people just staring at me. (insert vent session) I am so frustrated at them because NO ONE offered any assistance. Just some extra napkins would have helped or even offering to get the cleaning crew would have been awesome. In fact, the couple sitting by me, got up and moved!! I grabbed a mom that was passing by and asked if she would point the mess out to a cleaning crew and she was so sweet to help me!
As I was leaving I overheard these older women say, "She just has her baby in diapers?", as I officially earned the "worst mother in history on a cold day" award. Luckily Jack slept through the whole ordeal and was facing the other direction, so hopefully he did not get anything. Who knows if this is a stomach bug or just motion sickness from the stroller ride. So far it looks like it is over but I guess we will know in the next couple of days. (yikes!)
I am being ordained here as a mother of two, first the absent nipple and this???... BRING IT ON MOTHERHOOD!!! GIVE ME WHAT YOU GOT! (but be nice...will ya?)
