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!
