My life consists of cleaning up vomit

Bode just puked all over me for the 900th time. It dawned on me that for the past month I haven't done much more than clean up vomit and run to Walgreen's. Motherhood is humbling.

Remember when you used to dream about being a mother and all you thought it consisted of was dressing up kids in cute clothes and showing them off at church? It is so much worse and better than that all at the same time. Funny how that works.

GREAT QUOTE! and soooo true!

Sweet picture though, even if he is the culprit of all the nastiness! Hope your day gets better.

Kaison is vomiting too with a temp of 102+ at times. I need a vomit bag or something he can just sit in to catch it ALL!! I hope Bode feels better soon!

One time when I was like 10 I was hanging out on my parent's bed and I suddenly felt sick and threw up all over my mom's white bedspread. She tried to catch it in her hands but it didn’t work so well.

I guess what I'm trying to say is that it doesn’t get any better...just grosser and in larger amounts.

That really sucks, i am such a pukeaphobe have been since i was a kid. My 20 month old has only vomited once but that was when she was tiny and got choked feeding herself a bottle. Even then it mostly only got on her the rest on the highchair seat cover that can be thrown in the washer.
I dread the day it really happens for the first time because it will undoubtedly take her and i both by surprise and be somewhere not easy to clean.
