My confession for the day..I'm a bad mom!
She's 11..she started throwing up about 4am. So at 7 I heard her in the bathroom..she said how sorry she was. I guess it came out both ends. I told her to rinse the rug off in the shower..put it in the washer..and wipe up the floor. I went in after her and steam cleaned the floor. I guess I'm mean for having her clean the floor herself...

ETA... I never yelled..I wasn't mad at her. I had been in the bathroom with her every time she threw up..and she had been sleeping with me. I have never had my kids clean up after themselves when sick. This morning I had just fallen back to sleep.. so when I heard her..I did have her rinse the rug off..throw it in the washer..and wipe the floor. It only took a few min and she was back in bed with me. She wasn't up for hours scrubbing. Actually she didn't get it all..I did when I steam cleaned..and I never said anything to her about it.

That is not quite the way I would've handled it, but she's your child to raise the way you see fit.

I would've done it for my sick child. Hell, I went over to my 22-year-old daughter's apartment when she had the flu and cleaned up. But different strokes.

The poor thing. I would have helped her completely. 

But, hey, whatever works for you.
