Where Would We Be Without Vomit?

It just isn't really a full week until someone throws up. Maybe we just have weak stomachs around here, but it seems like somebody in the family is ailing almost every week these days. Sure the house isn't spotless, but I don't think we're breeding that much food poisoning.

This morning is was The Girl. She woke up cranky, whiny and lethargic. Then she looked pale and for once I wasn't the one holding the child when everything came up. Still unlike me, who always winds up either covered in vomit or catching it in my hands, my husband grabbed her, held her two feet in front of him and let her puke on the hardwood floor -- which is better than the sofa or the rug, I guess.

She's all tucked in and feeling gross. It figures that someone would get sick when we actually have a party to go to tonight.


Poor kid. Poor mom. Y'all take care of each other.

Maybe this is what they were talking about when they said overuse of antibacterial and antibiotic products were going to come back to bite us (and not just those who are guilty of overuse!) It seems like there's a lot more sickness going around this year.

Let's just hope it's not appendicitis!

Oh, I hope that whatever it is doesn't spread to the rest of The Family.

May the crud get no further than The Girl and may she get well, soon!

Ohhh!! I was hoping you guys would make it through the week without "incident". I'm sorry!

It was just last Sunday night when I was thinking, "No one puked this weekend. I don't know what to do with myself!" I couldn't believe it. I think it had been about 2 months since no one had some sort of icky ailment. Let's hope your respite is around the corner!

And NO appendicitis!!!

We had a vomiter, too. I never made it to the neighborhood home tour like I had hoped :( House rule: you can leave a sick kid with dad, but not if you want vomit on the leather sofa when you return.

Oohhh poor darling...I hope she gets well and stays well and the whatever it is doesn't hit the rest of the family.
