What? When the kids are on my watch I just take care of whatever happens and then tell him about it later. Sometimes it's routine and sometimes it involves massive amounts of vomit or poop. Yes, he may realize how lucky he was that I had to deal with the bodily fluids but my DH doesn't owe me anything for being a parent and I would laugh in his face if he told me I owed him for the same situation. I would absolutely feel sympathy for what he had to go through but I "owe" him? No.

And having been through more puking and pooping episodes than I'd care to admit, I have no clue how he managed to text multiple long and coherent texts to his wife while it was going on. Makes me think this was staged or something.

Eh, even if it was staged, it's pretty darn funny!

This crossed my mind as well. One would think his hands would be too full to make all those rapid fire, seemingly scripted, texts without responses of any kind from his wife.

This was the fakest story I ever read. The cops just don't randomly show up right away and pass out breathalyzers. He would have left the ladies front yard right away if she was yelling at him and accusing him of being drunk.

An hour later, I got out of the bath, the vomiting episode thankfully behind me, and went out into the driveway to clean up the car. As I exited the house, I was stunned and eternally grateful to see my now husband stooped over the driver's seat and scrubbing away while wearing an apron, elbow-length kitchen gloves, and a face mask. I'm pretty sure I fell completely, totally, irretrievably in love with him in that moment.
That's a keeper right there.


As for the story, I think it's staged, as well. I didn't think of his hands being too full, I was thinking: What cop is going to let him stand there texting during questioning after responding to a call of a possible drunk driver with kids, and then just before and after a breathalyzer? No, it doesn't happen like that.

I could totally see this happening to my husband. One of our kids we used to refer to as the Body Fluid Performance Artist because he would projectile vomit every time he cried. And he was colicky for the first 8 months or so, thus you can imagine just how often we cleaned up puke. My poor husband would vomit every single time he did. So many outfits we threw away because we couldn't stomach even putting them in our washing machine. I even recall throwing out his car seat and buying a new one.

My sister in law's daughter vomited in the back seat while my sister in law was driving. So she turns around to clean her baby up and crashes into a telephone pole. Everyone was OK, she wasn't going fast. Her driving never improved even after 40 more yrs.

Done that - no big deal. Dog poo still smells the worst. I don't care what anyone says.
