A Hole in the Bucket

While my son was sick last week he became quite proficient at throwing up in a bucket. For two days he carried the bucket around with him everywhere he went. In fact I sent him and his bucket off to his grandparent's house on Tuesday afternoon, which I know is kind of terrible of me, but I had a lot of work to get done.
On Wednesday he seemed better. No throwing up in the middle of the night. No throwing up after breakfast. So I suggested we all go to library story time at the recreation center.
"Okay," he said. "I'll bring my bucket."

song: A Hole in the Bucket • artist: German traditional
