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