After that excitement, Jake and Ella Kate decided it was time to make their debut on a ride......hmmm....... We chose the spinning, yes spinning, teacup type things. Jake, mama(who does get motion sick easily), Ella Kate, and 2 little friends of ours, Joshua and Dillon (whose Mom was actually smart enough not to get on) hopped into our cup.
Ella Kate decided fairly quickly that she didn't enjoy the ride and laid down in my lap. I immediately covered my eyes and laid my head as far down as I could get and still be upright. Jake began spinning the cup with Joshua and Dillon. He was thoroughly enjoying the ride for all of 30 seconds. At that time, he informed me that he didn't feel very well and that he was going to be sick. I told him to close his eyes and put his head down until it was over. About 10 seconds later he was gagging and I was waving my hands and yelling for the operator to stop the ride. He apparently thought I was kidding and Michael yelled back that I was a party pooper!! About that time, Jake lost his cheetos and coke! That got the operator's attention and we finally stopped but not soon enough. Jake continued to throw up while we used every wipe we had to ry to get him off of the ride and clean up the seat. Oh well, you never know what happened in the seat before you at the fair!! We found some port-o-potties with a make-shift sink to wipe him up. Then my sickness started to hit me. It really amazes me how well God equipped mothers to completely ignore their own urges to vomit until their 4 year old is feeling a little better. When I quit worrying so much about Jake, I realized that I was pretty sick myself!! Michael found the whole situation to be a little too amusing, by the way. He laughed the whole way home as Jake continued to throw up, and I continued to catch it, all the while trying to hold mine in. He did mention as we got on the ride that we would all be sick the rest of the day. Who knew that would be the one time he was right?! : ) I am now finally feeling better and Jake is still asleep. What a day!
