When dad Ben Patterson was left with his kids while his wife spent time with friends, he probably thought it was no big deal.
‘What could go wrong?’ he might have chuckled. ‘Being a dad is so fun!’

But what ensued was pretty much the exact opposite.
In a Facebook post that has garnered 83,000 likes and almost 140,000 shares, Ben outlines what went down on that fateful day.
His status reads,
Last night I was supposed to watch the kids, so my wife and I swapped cars after work so she could head out with some friends. On the way home, projectile vomit occurred and the whole time my wife wasn't answering her phone.... See the ensuing text messages.
Ben initially sent his wife a picture of his son, Declan, covered in vomit.
'So this just happened,' he wrote. 'I just pulled over and am trying not to throw up myself.'
It appears that Stephanie did not call. Because she is a boss lady.
'I just threw up trying to clean him up,' Ben continues. 'It smells SO BAD.'
Still no response from Stephanie, because... boss lady.
'I'm standing on the side of the road dry heaving, I can't even be in the car it's so awful,' writes Ben. The imagery is truly outstanding.
