A Mom's (and Dad's) Worst Nightmare!

I am usually really sad when I miss church, honest, but I was glad that I wasn't feeling well this Sunday and decided to stay home with the baby who also was not feeling well. As Tyler and the kids were walking out the door Nick said, "Mom my tummy hurts". I totally thought that he was just coming up with an excuse to stay home with me so I sent them all out the door. The baby went down for a nap and I decided to get a little rest and was napping on the couch when Tyler walked in the door with Nick and they were both covered in vomit. I laughed and asked what happened. It was a mission farewell and during the future missionaries talk Nick stood up and just started throwing up - all over himself and then the people in front of him who were extended family of the missionary. Tyler scooped him up and made a run for it as Nick continued to throw up. Tyler said the he pulled Nick's knees to his chest to create a bucket and he was able to contain most of it. How embarassing!!!! On the way home Nick said, "Dad, I hope the Heavenly Father and Jesus understand". We have been working hard with our kids and Sacrament meeting - teaching them about respect for the church and keeping it clean. Tyler reassured him the he knew Heavenly Father and Jesus would forgive him for getting the church dirty! Needless to say, this was one Sunday I was grateful to miss!

I can sympathize with Nick's embarassment. Poor kid! And poor Tyler for having to deal with it all. What happened after he left the church? Hope you're all feeling better.

That is awful!! I would be so glad that I missed church that day if I were you! I got your comment on my blog a while back. It has been so much fun to see your family on your blogs. Your five year old looks just like I remember your little sisters looking when I was in eighth grade! You Hills all look alike! Anyway, you have such a cute family! Good to see you. Nicole

Oh man that is horrible! I went through the same thing with Mason last winter during the sacrament! It was everywhere as he did not stop until we reached the toilet. It is a parents worst nightmare. Good thing you missed it...hee,hee!

I am sorry that happened! I used to make up that I was sick all the time to get out of chruch. I guess from now on if he says he is sick he stays home (even if he isn't) Smart Kid!

Sharlynn said...

YUCK! Oh I feel so bad for you. How is he feeling now? Is that what the baby was sick with? I hope all is better and that it never happens again to you. Or any one else for that matter.

Oh that is the worst! I hope he is feeling better. Throwing up and triping down the isle while carrying a baby at church are a few of my worst nightmares!

Oh, I am so sorry! Seriously, what a nightmare! Those poor people! I hope they got cleaned up okay! Way to go on teaching your kids to be respectful of the church building. That's awesome!

Renee, that is my worst nightmare, I'm so glad you missed it. So far we haven't had any major episodes at Church but I rue the day and I'm sure it's coming.
