My sweet (sick) daughter is just beginning to really talk and come up with things on her own. I had quite a stellar parenting moment this morning. We were eating a lovely breakfast with my sister before we left Chicago. I was attempting to get Abigail to take some dramamine before hitting the road but she knows what it is and how bad it tastes.
So, being the wonderful mother that I am, I just shoved it into her mouth. Not the best idea - in hindsight - but live and learn, right?!
Anyway, she chokes, gags, and screams in a restaurant full of people. Bad mother moment.
Anyway . . .
As she is gagging on this bad tasting pill she yells out in a very loud voice (while crying):
"I need a bucket."
Meaning, she needed a bucket to throw-up in. Ha!
I have been laughing at this all day. She didn't end up throwing up but it's funny that she knows she needs a bucket to throw up in and her dramatics are still making me laugh!
Anyway, lesson learned. Do not torture your daughter in public by shoving dramamine in her mouth - wait to do that in private - ha ha!
