If you’re a parent who hasn’t yet had the pleasure of holding a substance that was ejected from your child’s body, well, don’t worry. Someday, you will.

And when it happens, I guarantee that maternal instinct will kick in and you’ll know exactly what to do.



When my child
starts to retch,


do I

strive to catch



as if it

were something
