I had two plans today.

The first plan was to blog about our major project of the week while Papa was in town.

That plan got hijacked by my frustration about my second plan- hence today’s post.

If there is one thing that I am sure of at this point, it is that being a mother means that if you have a few precious hours without kiddos, and you have a plan to do something awesome, someone will puke.

In my case, it is always Maddox.

What is up with that?

I think my mom and I might be cursed.  Maybe it is the shopping gods sending a VERY loud and clear message that we should not be allowed to shop by ourselves…

Today Maddox was going to be in school for 4 hours.  Yes.  4 hours.

We were going to drop him off and head to the shops…eat a bite of lunch and then pick him up.

When he woke up this morning saying he had a tummy ache and felt like he was going to throw up, I went through all the things…

Me:  Maybe you just need to go poop.  

Mads: I don’t think so.  Mommy I want you, my tummy hurts.

Me: Maybe you are just hungry?  Do you want some toast?  

( as I muster up a big snuggly hug – I secretly feel pissed and am directing it a little towards him (honestly) even though I know that in no way is this his fault…)

Meanwhile my little inner voice is saying: NOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!Are you f-ing kidding me?  If there is any kid that knows what it feels like to have to throw up, it is Maddox… but maybe he is wrong this time….??  

I give him a little piece of toast- because despite what he is telling me, he is TOTALLY PERKY.

At this point I am thinking that maybe, just maybe, he got it wrong this time.

Then…. up comes the toast.

My plans are D.O.N.E.   Game Over.

So this is what I am doing today-


Yep.  Gumby.

I thought mom and I could sit on the couch with the computer and shop online, but it just doesn’t seem like it would be the same…

Does this happen to everyone?  Or just me?
