Life's Like That

So the short people have been vomiting. I actually found myself at three a.m. cleaning vomit out of my 5 year old son's ear. In all my visions of mommy-hood I can definitely say that without a doubt this didn't factor in. Poor little tot. The most heartbreaking of moments came when it was time to slip back into the recently de-puked bed and go back to sleep - the holy teddy had a throw-up encrusted head. Again...not nice. So with much coaxing and soothing I managed to get him to accept 50 other stuffed stand in's while teddy was given an impromptu romp in the washing machine. Now he smells like Downy - and this is so, so much better. I - on the other hand - am quite sure that no matter how many showers I have I will forever forth smell of sick. Sure of it.

Thanks Moxy! I needed that! ;-)

Um - Yoga - Thanks but I don't think you can know that I smell sweet. Trust me I smell really unsweet right now! LOL.

"I will forever forth smell of sick. Sure of it."

I thought that myself once, after a particularly 'messy' pub crawl... It's amazing what modern science can do though!
