Please Assure Me It’s Normal

So tonight I was getting the girls ready for bed. We did our normal routine and were wrapping things up. The way it works is this ~ we read a book, then we rock a little, sing a little and pray. After that the Little One gets tucked in bed and then the Big One gets tucked in bed.

As I was trying to get the Little One tucked in, she suddenly says, “I’m sick! I need to puke in the toywet!” And then ran with her padded little feet into the bathroom.

Before I can even react, the Big One races past me in the hallway exclaiming, “I want to see! I want to watch {Little One} puke!

Seriously? Is it really that much fun to watch someone puke when you are four?  Please someone reassure me that it is completely normal little kid behavior to want to watch your sister (or anyone ) puke.

And thankfully for the record, there was no puke. It’s been about 90 minutes since this proclamation was made. Unfortunately, I can pretty much guarantee that I will NOT sleep tonight because I am still anticipating the puke.

    I (accidentally)puked directly on my sister’s head when I was about 5. even @ the time, & even though I was sick, I DID see the humor in it…pretty much instantly.

    Not sure if it’s normal, but my 4 year old wants to see everything, so my guess is that the Big One is on track developmentally. She’s just afraid she’ll miss something.

    Totally normal. We haven’t had the puke incident, but Big A. insists on seeing Little A’s dirty diapers. “Is it poop?? I wanna see!”
    Yet when I ask if he’d like to change that poopy diaper, he proclaims “No, I only change pee diapers.”
