I am almost 50 and this post unexpectedly made my cry. So many forgotten memories came flooding back. Of spills and mistakes. Of throwing up after.i came home from.my very first birthday party I was ever invited too. I won a red jello straw sucking contest. I threw up red liquid all over the bathroom that night. I couldnt have been older than 8. I remember being screamed at and sobbing and trying to mop it up off the floor in the middle of the night. As a parent now, it's very very difficult to reconcile treating a small scared child so horribly. Its criminal. I am so glad you had atleast one female showing you love. I did have my sister thank goodness. I knew my mother was sick and crazy all the way back then.
