Don't ya hate it when.....




Your awakened in the middle of the night with your kids throwing up?

I'm home with the little guy today.  He said in the car yesterday as we were leaving the school parking lot, "I feel like I'm gonna throw up."  Where I desperately grab my lunchbox, dump all of the contents (vitamins I didn't take, some granola I didn't eat, and the ice packet thingys) and tell him to put his head in the lunchbox if he has to throw up.  Well half way home, it happened! My daughter plugs her ears and puts her head out the window she says, "I just can't take the sound mom." We get home, I dump the deal in the grass way over by a tree and he goes straight to the shower and toilet.  That poor kid went to bed at 5:30 and stayed asleep until 12:00.  That's when I see him holding the bucket saying to my husband, "Dad, I threw up again."  My husband says, "go dump it bud and go back to bed."  That's it! Ok, then I get up and dump the bucket take care of the washing of hands, getting water, and tucking back in.  You might be asking yourself, how is he feeling? Well just about an hour ago I could hear him singing very loudly and trying to do a somersault in the family room.  I guess the bug that came a creeping is gone.  Can you tell I'm bored?






What should I do? Clean it or burn it?

ouch! Ok, I'm not gonna touch part of this post....

but the lunch box has GOT TO GO sister!! I know that I could never eat out of it again. :-o

Oh and BTW, I'm glad that he's feeling much better. 24 hour bugs are the "best" (if there is such a thing as a best virus) :-)

Poor Jay!!! You're a good mommy :) Don't you just love those memorable moments....thank God for blogs where we can vent it all out.....
In one of the seminars I went to in Dallas, the speaker said "you Moms out there? You all need a barf partner."
You can be mine :)

Oh, and throw it away... :(

Eeeeeew gross. Toss the lunchbox. Even if you clean it you still think about what happened to it. Glad to her that Jay is better! I'm forever sad that I couldn't have been his teacher this year.
