Standing in "Bommit"

"Is this poop on the floor?  Or vomit?"

I asked with deep fear....seriously asked.

10 years of medical experience..wiping butts, changing diapers, serving medications, feeding tubes, working as a CNA, a Direct Care Trainer for the handicapped, and a Phlebotomist and I truly could not distinguish what this substance was all over my bathroom floor.  I had no clue.

I yelled a bit louder, my words somewhat sharper-
"Is. This. Poop. Or. Vomit??"

The deep wrinkles in my forehead became deeper...I just needed a solid answer!

Both boys were standing nearby looking at me with anticipation of my next move.
One of them decides to approach with bravery and full sincerity.
He steps forward and looks at me with a stone cold expression.
With no doubt in his words and as if to console me he says with tender eyes, "It's bommit Mommy," he pauses and says in a somewhat sadder tone...."it's bommit."

Have you ever stood among something and wasn't quite sure what you were dealing with?  Sometimes you just can't determine what kind of mess you are standing in.  Sometimes you need someone who has wisdom that you don't, to step up and tenderly tell you what kind of stinky mess you are in the middle of.  Sometimes you need a special kind of friend to just stand there with you.

With their nose plugged with cotton, that friend will be the one to hang out when things are going good & when also when things are covered in "bommit."

My son, however, didn't stick around to do cleanup duty, he instead walked around demonstrating to his brother how he had chewed up his sandwich bit by bit and spit it all over the bathroom floor.  :)

Good friends are an adornment & when you get a few that will stand among the muck with you, hang on to them as they are your greatest investment.

I hope you are all blessed today!  Thanks for visiting my page and  please consider linking up your posts below to share with other readers.
