Seven Things I've Learned About... Vomit

Lily was a little sick last night so she and I stayed home from church.  This allowed me ample time this morning to ponder a few things I've learned about... vomit.

1.     Even when it's your kids, it's still pretty gross.

2.     It always starts between 2 & 4 AM during one of the best sleeps of your life.

3.     They never make it all the way to the bathroom.

4.     No matter how you attempt to protect the sheets, you will be stripping the bed in the middle of the night.

5.     When all else fails, you will use your pajama top to "collect the deposit".

6.     At some point in your parenting, it will slide down the inside of your shirt.

7.     Your child will feel better afterwards and you will feel like the inside of a dumpster on a 100 degree day.


  1. Oh girl! We could have talked last night around 3:00a.m. We had vomit at 3:00, 4:00, 5:00, 6:00, 7:00 and then a little break until 8:45. Just about the time I fell back asleep there it came....on the hour. Landry did ALWAYS make it to the bathroom but....all beds were srtipped and bathrooms disinfected today. Now I'm telling her it's time to go to bed and she thinks I'm nuts!

  2. Good for Landry making it to the bathroom - she must be fast on her feet! I hope she is asleep (and you are too!) and that you have a vomit free rest of the day!
