A First Time for Everything

Today we were at The Falls. Monday's and Tuesday I teach
about 20-25 Latino preschoolers. One of the little boys
is especially cute with big round brown eyes and a smile
that will melt your heart. However, he is very attached
to his mom. Sometimes she leaves for a few minutes with
her baby. Today was one of those days. She left, he started
crying. I went over to him and said Esta Bien- It's okay,
Mom will be right back. Big tears were rolling down his
checks so I picked him up and started around the table
to hand out coloring pages to the other children. Right
as I rounded the corner of one table he started vomiting.
It was profuse!! It got all over him,all over me, and all
over the floor. I put him down and began cleaning him up
with paper towels. I went over to the trash can and tried
to get as much off me into the trash and then I set about
cleaning chunks of throw up off the floor. Another mom-
one of our helpers(it was her 1st day) came over and helped
with the preschoolers while I went to the bathroom to take
off and rinse off my polo shirt. I put it back on wet. The
little boy was taken home by his mom. I came back and told
everyone its okay - but I am going to smell. I told them
there is a first time for everything. I have cleaned up
alot of messes being a RN and a mom of 6 but I have
never had it all over me and not be able to change clothes.
My families are so sweet though and several were concerned.
A little while later one of the moms came back in with a
clean t-shirt for me to wear. I am so blessed to work with
such wonderful people and families. God really is in control
even when the circumstances are not ideal.

I did not get pictures although thinking back later if it had
been video-taped I think we could have made TV!!
