Consistency

We're 2 for 2 at our house now. Carver began throwing up at 2 am last night. Another night time vomit cleaning spree. I'll spare you the details but it was a doozie. I am considering tarps for the kids' floors at my mom's house instead of carpet. I think one of the harder things about motherhood is the way your days change on a dime. One day everyone is healthy and you make plans and appointments and play dates, and the next day kids are sick and you're trapped inside and start wondering how long this tummy virus will take to run through the entire family.

It's part of the job. I can't complain. Every other mom has done it too. It's possible I'll give the mop and bleach to David next time, though. I really feel like he's missing out.

Okay, that just sucks. Blech. Here's hoping for healthiness on the quick. Or at least the ability to make it to the bathroom in time. Seriously, blech.

Making a mental note to remove carpet upstairs. Blech. And a college savings plan contribution if they make it to the bathroom. Blech.

Yeah, we had our very 1st puke & diarrhea fest today. Needless to say, we stayed downstairs on the couch (no carpet) all day. I'm hoping for a better day tomorrow :)
Hope you guys have a quick recovery too!

Oh Cathy, didn't you guys just have the flu? Hugs and wishing everyone a speedy recovery. Their poor stomachs. Best of luck!
