1. As soon — and I do mean AS SOON — as I read the following ill-fated words, ‘My kids have never thrown up. Knock on Wood,’ I grimaced and thought, “She does know that simply by uttering those words, it was like offering up an invitation for the Universe to prove you wrong, right?

    Welp…chalk this up to yet another rite of passage that you can mark off your list: Vomit vortex…check.

    Not that it really matters, but,just curious: What prompted this “gift” that kept on giving?

      My daughter and I both came down with it last night and still recovering…ugh! I think it was probably germs from the playground Saturday, but who knows!

    My 2 year old got pretty proficient at hitting “the bucket” while I was holding it during a recent spate of what you’re experiencing. She also gets a telltale confused look on her face which allows enough time to grab bucket and (hopefully) position it a correct distance from her face.

    We also yanked out the futon, slapped the old linens on it & I slept with her nestled on top of me so that when she instantly sat up out of a dead sleep, it would wake me in time to commence bucket duty.

    On Monday & Tuesday, Daddy had to stay home with her for a fever of 103.4 and he got the bucket ready, “just in case”. She knows exactly what it’s for now because he would ask her how she felt and her reply would be “no bucket, daddy.” And, sure enough, she was right. 🙂

      That is so sweet — ‘no bucket’. I love it. My daughter and I have since gotten the bog and still recovering. Dad has avoided it so far somehow. Thanks so much for visiting!

  3. Aw, that sounds AWFUL! (Although I did laugh at the Seinfeld quote, haha.) My dad hadn’t thrown up in almost 40 years, until this winter! It must be a MAD flu season or something! Hang in there and I hope they all start feeling better!
