A Typical Family Dinner

Sitting down to dinner tonight was pleasant for the four of us. A nice serving of barbecued corn, chicken and nature burgers and a delicious salad. And then Ava (5 years old) sprays pukes all over the table. Then she continues to spray it all over the bathroom.
The kid has the weakest gag reflex (and worst timing) ever! You know the reason she puked (this time)? She didn’t like the bite of corn in her mouth.
Eye roll.
It’s really hard to maintain compassion when it is constantly little things like this that make her empty her stomach contents at less than a moment’s notice. I love my child, I really do. Sometimes the reasons for her puking like the exorcist (I’m not joking here, folks) just makes me shake my head though.
