Our church had a chili cook-off. First of all, we are not able to be very social when we go out as a family. We get there, and one of us sits at a table to try to keep the kids happy while the other quickly grabs some food for everyone. Then we sit at that table feeding everyone while everyone else socializes. With Adam and Isabel, you have to stay focused. As soon as you relax a bit, something happens.
Adam tried to follow me when I went to get Anna some dessert. A nice girl we know picked him up. A few seconds later I hear a commotion. When I get over there, Adam has thrown up all over her. Not on the ground which would have been managable, but right on her shirt. She was very nice about it and even stayed at the party - I would have gone home.
But did we go home? No. We've gotten used to the chaos and stayed, and actually had a decent time. We just made sure no one else held Adam. I think I owe that girl a present on Sunday.
