Fifteen years I managed. Fifteen years of kids before I had to deal with it. It was understandable with the big one, lucky with the little fellow. I have now experienced my first ever vomiting child incident.
Hard to believe, I know. It’s one of the many peculiarities of Prader-Willi Syndrome that many people with the syndrome lack a vomit reflex. So my PWS daughter, aged 15, has never been sick, apart from a bit of milky dribble when she was a baby.
Meanwhile, surprisingly, my five-year-old, non-PWS son, who regularly partakes in the extreme sport of ingesting large amounts of cake and being completely unable to sit still whilst doing so, had also never been sick.
That was up until the other night. Three times. Three lots of bedsheets. Three sets of pyjamas. Tucking-ups and chucking ups.
I’d quite like it to be fifteen years before the next one, please.
