That moment in life where you realise......

.... your super secret ninja power is nothing more than (warning a bit gross ahead)

being able to catch your child's vomit. We were at lunch today and started to make a choking sound then as I patted his back he started to puke and I caught the whole lot in my hand. He's perfectly fine now, he's runnign a track around the house from the computer area, through the dining room to the back part of the living room with a toy lawn mower.

No I never thought a nice lazy Sunday lunch ( well brunch seeing as I ordered off the breakfast menu, scrambled eggs were the only soft thing they serve) would involve that.

My secret ninja skill is getting a toddler covered in poop away from the dinner table and changed without making other patrons vomit.

It's weird how one day your think "BLEH PUKE!!" and the next you think nothing of catching it!

Glad he's ok

Nice job!! I don't think I could achieve that. Lyla randomly puked this morning too. No signs that she's sick at all, but she has been cranky for a few days.

i've caught his puke with my body before. Where instead of puking all over himself and the floor he puked all on me instead Blum 3 I don't think anything of it. DH on the other hand gets totally grossed out.

Hubby thought the whole situation was hilarious, but was laughing to much to really be of any help.

ah yes. The joys of bodily functions of small ones lol. Closest encounter we've had recently was when I wasn't quick enough to keep Charlie from feeding a friend one of her boogers on a playdate.

Oh yummy, I remember doing that when DD1 was a wee one. There's just some jobs as a mother I'd prefer not to have often, and that is one of them! And of course, pretty much anything involving poop outside of a diaper!
