They Have Equipment To Clean That Up

Carter had a field trip to the zoo and came bounding off the bus excited to tell me about the lions! And they had bald eagles but they looked like REGULAR eagles! And they even had a goat!

But the most exciting thing (and his most detailed story of all)
was when Katrina threw up on the bus.

Did she get it on anyone?

No- they have equipment to clean that up, he told me matter of factly. They sprinkled a can and it sucked it away!
Then we ate our sack lunch.

Good to know.

  3. Um, wow. There are days it is not good to be a teacher. The days you have to clean up the puke...those are the bad days.

    At least he saw a goat!

    Love,

  5. Wow... I had no idea there was something that made puke magically disappear. I too am flabbergasted that they were able to follow that up with lunch ;)

  13. My daughter had a field trip where someone wet their pants...that was ALL she remembered of the whole day. Glad to know that field trip money was well spent.

    I need me some of the magic can sprinkle...I wonder if it works on messy bedrooms.

  14. Ahhhhh! Isn't there always one child that pukes on the bus? Seriously! Thank goodness the "equipment" saved the day!

    The fact that the kids didn't let a little puke ruin their lunch just goes to show that sometimes, as adults, we tend to sweat the small stuff a little too much!

  15. :)

    He may remember Katrina throwing up for the rest of his life. I had a field trip to the zoo in first grade and the lion lifted his leg at the fence and peed on my teacher, who was a nun. I remember it like it was yesterday.

  20. With boys you will never ever be bored - grossed out maybe but never bored!

  21. oh, i love it. the most random (and gross) things are always the most fun for them. =)

  22. I STILL remember clearly the day in first grade when a guy named Brian Comments raised his hands and barely made it to the trashcan before throwing up. I vowed that day to NEVER be the kid who threw up in front of everyone. First grade--scars us for life!

  23. Totally gross. What is it with kids and vomit?

    ReplyDelete
  24. Oh, the things you can learn from a little one!

    ReplyDelete
  25. Huh. I need some of that equipment for flu season!

    I still remember when kids threw up at school when I was a kid. That stuff sticks in my mind for some reason.

  26. We've come so far in so many ways. It's good to know that the throw up cleaning method is still the same.

  27. Not much has changed in 20 years! I have a very similar story! Yucky!

  28. I chaperoned a group of first graders to the zoo, and at the elephant exhibit, one went to the bathroom. Well, that's all they talked about and, during a class assignment, wrote about as well. It's amazing what kids "love"!

  29. Someone threw up on Hunter's field trip last week too. Only I was there. Good thing he wasn't in MY group!

  30. Bless his little heart for being able to eat after that. I think I would have hurled right there. I am definitely a sympathetic vomiter! : ) Michelle

  31. Ugh, choke, cough, blech. I'm glad he could eat his lunch. I'm pretty sure I won't be able to eat mine now! ;-)

  32. Haha! I could have used some of that this past weekend!

    ReplyDelete
  33. LOL, that is pretty funny that was what impressed him the most from his trip.

    ReplyDelete
  34. LOL Well, it is pretty cool. I want some of that during flu season.

  35. I had a student throw up in my classroom during state testing (who doesn't want to throw up during a test?), but we did not have equipment to clean it up. Gross.

    ReplyDelete
  36. Oh my, I don't think I'd be so much eating the sack lunch after that. Kids are too funny!

    ReplyDelete
  37. Ha! I love hearing Bubbie's version of stories!

    ReplyDelete

  40. Uhh...yeah...that stuff is called Vo-Ban. (There's some other stuff too, but I can't remember what it is called) It really does "suck it up".

    ReplyDelete
  41. That's my Carter! He is one of a kind...love him.

  42. I used to work at a preschool and I can't tell you how many times I was grateful that they have equipment to clean "that" up.

    So grateful.
