the great thing about throw up is...

you can smell it. 
this is helpful in the middle of the night when you're checking in on your little sickie baby & don't want to wake her.  open the door, sniff, sniff & you'll know whether she's yarfed or not.

have i mentioned before that my children have the most sensitive gag reflexes in north america?
yes, i believe i have.


holland quickly recovered from the croup, but it left her with a nasty cold.  & where there's a cold, there's snot & where there's snot with my kids, there's vomit.  it's that plain & simple.  they puke when they're congested.


truly, i have to say i'm super thankful for the short existence of the croup - i'll take a bad cold over the croup anyday, but throwing up is rough ground around here.  most of you know my kiddos have a metabolic disorder that takes a long time to explain, but isn't a huge problem until they're throwing up.  THEN it puts mom & pop in overdrive.  we have to make sure they don't go very long without food.

not such a big deal, right?  feed holls right before bed & she'll be fine, right??

did i mention that my kids have this teeny tiny little issue with puking in their bed & then going right back to sleep??

ummhmmm.  yeah.  SICK.  as well as super dangerous for them.

in conclusion, i'd like to say that i am happy for the following...

1.  mimi is coming today (hallellllluuuuujah!).
2.  i am going to dallas for a few days (yippppeeee!).
3.  holland is doing much better & hasn't puked in about 18 hrs 8.5hrs.

i am looking forward to a few days sans puke.
it's the little things, people :)
