Vomit Watch 2008! (Now! with more puking!)

So, um, yeah. For your Monday Morning Pleasure, a summary of the last few days:

Last Wednesday Night: Baby wakes up covered in vomit. We clean up, get back to sleep only to be awakened by more vomit in about 45 min. Lather, rinse, repeat.

Thursday: Stay home with baby. Seems fine other than periodic puking. I give him water in a sippy cup and breast milk only. We have high hopes.

Friday: Still throwing up in the morning. Puke now covering everything we own.

Saturday: Things looking up! No have some crackers! Oh. Oops! Puke.

Sunday: Puke free day. Seriously, not one puke. Baby eats crackers, applesauce. It stays down! Praises be!

Today: 8:00 am. Eager to return to the world of non-vomit, baby returns to daycare (with instructions regarding bland, starchy diet, excess of liquids etc etc) and I return to work.

9am. Phone rings. Daycare. You guessed it- PUKE!

Its OK, really. I totally wanted to use up ALL MY SICK TIME on my kid this month. Because, you know, VOMIT RULZ.

To be continued...

Once, Margot puked up a chocolate cake. I tell you, you haven't lived until you have scrubbed chocolate puke out of a carpet. :-)

Hope the deluge of puke ends soon, for the mama's sake.

BRAT - Bananas, rice, applesauce and totast. Sometimes the bug can be out of their system, but their intestines need to have a reset pushed.

Also good/important. Cheese, probiotics, carrots, potatoes.

M didn't eat anything green for two weeks after she had a bug.
