Taking the Night Off!

The stomach flu has hit the Fun House. First Andy, now Pickle. Poor little Pickle--she doesn't understand and the throwing up is freaking her out. Also--who knew such a tiny body could spew so much? It never seemed to end. Luckily, by the evening, she was able to keep down some Pedialyte--so fingers crossed for a good night's sleep for her.

I have spent a good part of the day cleaning up vomit so I'm giving myself a break from my no t.v. watching and spending the evening with the Real Housewives of New York--though the housewives are semi-vomit-inducing. Could Simon be more of a creep?? He just bought his wife a burlap corset for seven thousand dollars.

I kind of feel like a slacker, but I'm not feeling so great myself...

OH NO!!!!! Bless all your little stomach flu hearts!!!

Reason #78 why I wouldnt make a good mom... I could NEVER clean up vomit without throwing up myself! :o)

Hope you get to avoid it yourself! & hope everyone got a good night's sleep!

Oh no! So sorry! Throwing still freaks my girls - heck, it still freaks me out! Hope everyone gets better soon!
We have talked about the Housewives before but just how weird is that Simon??? I really can not stand him or Ramona! But I still watch them! Have you seen the NJ preview - those sound like some catty women!

Ugh!!!! Not fun :-( Hope they are feeling better soon and that the rest of you don't end up with it..

Despite having been both a nurse and an EMT, I do not cope very well with people vomiting.

Severed body parts, blood, guts and all other associated injuries and mayhem, do not bother me. I used to take them in my stride. However, someone vomits and I'm gone.

I'm an extreme wimp when it comes to vomit..

Oh no, Jen. Hope the nasty flu leaves as quickly as it came and everyone feels better soon.

Yes- Simon is very creepy.

Praying that the kids stop vomiting & you don't start!

I hope the sickies get out of your house FAST, Jen!

I thinking cleaning up throwup entitles you to a break from the no tv rule. Enjoy!
