What is it about little kids and weak stomachs? I guess their little, growing bodies need more protection from crud than adult stomachs or something. I don't know any adult that just all of the sudden needs to throw up, and then is fine once it's all over. But kids, that's a whole different story.
Michael was fine last evening. We played outside for a little while when we got home. We are having the nicest fall weather right now, and a number of kids were out having fun. Michael was right in there with them, clearly feeling fine.
He was a little cranky at dinner time, but it was pretty mild crankiness compared to some of the crazy 3-year-old behavior we have seen recently. Once I sat down with him after dinner, he cheered right up, and was pretty easy going up until bedtime. We started the routine as usual. He and Andy brushed his teeth, Michael blew kisses to me, and then he jumped up on my lap. We snuggled and started to read his bedtime stories.
Part way through Counting Kisses Michael mentioned that his tummy didn't feel good. I asked him about it, but he said it was OK. Having been down this route before, I didn't trust his judgment. When I noticed he was swallowing a lot, I grabbed a blanket and placed it over his lap. Good timing too. I managed to keep everything contained to items that can be washed in the washing machine. We headed into the bathroom and Michael finished emptying his stomach.
Then, he started jumping around, laughing, and insisting I give him a bath.
I have no idea what happened. It came out of nowhere, and once he was done he was fine. No fever, no complaints, and fortunately no repeats. This morning he was fine. We are keeping a close eye on him, but this seems like an anomaly. Kid's tummies are just weird.
Lets see, yesterday I blogged about boogers, today vomit. I guess I should work on a poop post for tomorrow to stick with the theme.
Then again, maybe not.
