What's That Stench?

For The Toddler Girl (whom her older siblings inform me can no longer be called a baby) the past week could be summed up as such -- vomit in my sleep and all over the floor, leaky diarrhea diapers, nothing, more diarrhea, vomit all over Mom at the library, more diarrhea, don't sleep all night, even more diarrhea. I took her to the doctor yesterday and other than the obvious stomach bug, she seems fine, well-hydrated and without other health problems. Lucky us!

Today seems good. We haven't had any foul-smelling emissions as of yet. And thanks to the previous night's complete lack of sleep, last night I fell asleep at 9 and for once actually feel rested.


Of course, the truest mark of an old hand at parenting is being around all this, and still be able to say to yourself, "Hey, you know a nice hot bowl of chili would be pretty good for lunch."

Hope she gets to feeling better quickly!

Poor thing. I'm glad she's feeling better! Diapers and diarrhea don't mix so well.
