Sick day

This morning Brendan was stalling big time on getting himself dressed and ready. I was rushing around like usual trying to get ready for work. Adam was fussy, crawling around following me and crying. Every time I rushed by Brendan I would say "Brendan, get your clothes on!" "My tummy hurts, I can't" was his response each time. This is an excuse he has used before when he doesn't want to do something, so I figured that was the case again. "Brendan, get your clothes on, we need to go" After about 5 times I finally helped him get his clothes on, and we rushed out the door, got him and Adam strapped in the car and took off. I gave Brendan some water and crackers for in the car on the way to daycare. About 10 minutes down the road I realized I was VERY low on gas. I almost went on and tried my luck thinking I probably had enough gas to make it there, but at the last moment I decided to go ahead and take the exit and get gas. Good thing I did! As soon as we pulled up, Brendan said he needed to "swallow". (for some reason that's what he said instead of throw up). I still thought he might just be saying that, he's done that before and pretends to throw up to be silly. Well, just in case I did unbuckle him and told him he could stand outside at the pump with me. "Where can I swallow?" he asked. It's then I realize he just isn't letting this go, he must be serious. I pointed to the trashcan, but poor little guy, the trash can was too tall for him, and just then BLAAAAHHH he puked all over the ground. Ewwwww! Thank goodness it was outside and not in my car. lol Okay, so now I feel like a bad Mommy for not believing him this morning when he said his tummy hurt! I wiped his face for him, and asked if he was okay. He said he was. We got back in the car and I drove the rest of the way to daycare to drop Adam off (don't want him around a sick Brendan all day). Then I turned around and brought Brendan back home, and called in to work. So, we are here at home today. He is watching cartoons on the couch for now. So far he seems okay, and he hasn't thrown up again yet. We shall see how the rest of the day goes! Poor little guy :(
