So I started off the day not too badly for having all the kids at home this week on vacation. My husband looked very handsome as I sent him off to work, he smelled good too. I had a nice cup of coffee and I got a lot of writing done yesterday.
I hear the distinct sound of a kid puking. Moms you all know this sound. Dread creeps through me and I look around the corner and see my oldest not only spraying vomit, but running around the living room and then hitting his sister head on with it. Shocked screams ensue from her as she’s standing, her arms out and glaring at her brother. I’m yelling at him to stop running and the middle kid is dressed in his spider man costume and gagging.
I order that one NOT to vomit and look at the living room, eyes watering. Sent oldest kid upstairs to his bathroom, start the water for a shower and get the washing machine running. Toss daugher in the shower in my bathroom after undressing her and trying not to join the party myself. I’m SUCH a sympathetic gagger. I got her cleaned up, dried off, changed. Got the oldest cleaned up and changed and I send him to his bed. Got the washer filled up and going and then I head into the garage for the rug cleaner – not the big kind, which I WILL rectify this upcoming weekend, but we have a spot cleaner kind. Sigh. I clean up the living room and cripes, of course they had all sorts of toys out and then have to get on my hands and knees to use the rug cleaner.
Sigh. By the time I was done and had run the washer, two showers and the rug cleaner, the water for MY shower was tepid.
Kiddo number one is sleeping and I’m just hoping whatever he has does not spread to the others.
OH – in actual happy news – HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO JACI BURTON!!
