How Do You Know That You Love Someone?

6 Dec

Answer: When you clean up their vom.

Ben had his wisdom teeth removed last Friday, and yours truly played the role of nurse for the weekend. (That might have conjured up a sexy image for some of you, but let me assure you that it was anything but.)

After cleaning up projectile vomit (he had a bad reaction to the sedation), I decided that you know you love someone when you clean up their bodily fluids without anger or disgust. And, since I’m not a mom, I can only remember doing this one other time. It involved my best friend’s 21st birthday party, 21 shots…and Japanese food. She had an exam the next day, so I just put her in bed and wiped down the floor. And walls. And toilet. And sink.

    As his Mom – I thank you and Love you too. You are correct – There are things you do and don't think about it – hopefully he will do the same for you should you need him.

    I remember the 21st birthday myself! Cleaning up kids is not quite as bad, sorry L!

    I'm pretty sure he'd return the favor. If he is ever hesitant, I will remind him. ;)Amy,I told her the other day that she's a walking miracle. Thank goodness for mini-bottles and shots split three ways. We surely would've killed her otherwise.
