A Picture is Worth Bumpkiss

What does this picture I took yesterday tell you? Does it tell you that I've spent over two days being puked on? Does it tell you that both my kids have crusties coming out of their noses the size of gerbils? Does it tell you they are bathing in the sink becaues my bathtub has become a watery depository for about 10 outfits of mine and the girls that have been thrown up on and are awaiting the coinop? No. All it says is the old cliche, "motherhood is easy and fun." Who am I to ruin that sentiment?

It also tells me you have a great shade of yellow on your kitchen walls =)

My family had a lovely throw up/diarrhea bug last weekend. There are 6 of us in our family, including parents. 5 of us got sick. It's never ever a good thing when mom starts throwing up too! I was up to my eyeballs in barf for about 4 days straight. Bad, bad times. I feel your pain.

It tells me you have a big sink. I couldn't fit my 3 year old in a sink...

I second Jamie J. No way would my 4 year old fit in my sink.

They look like they're having fun and that's what it's all about, right?

GERBILS? That's serious.

I think you need to block these types of things from those of us who have yet to procreate. I guess at least we won't freak out when snot happens instead of parenthood looking like a Babystyle ad.

You tell those girls to keep their dainty little mitts off that Italian ceramic plate or I'm coming out there to reclaim it, okay, Darling?

and "carefree" "easy" "simple" and involving no "planning" or "logistics."

I can feel your pain but in a different way...my twin girls put their fingers in their mouths and gag themselves to the point of puking. It isn't all the time but they do it on a regular basis and often enough to irritate the heck out of me.
I put them down tonight and one went right to sleep, when I checked the monitor the other was no longer crying but just sitting there, I went in to get her since she wasn't giving up the ghost and I smelled vomit...got her out of the crib and felt vomit. It was disgusting.
You can go to sleep knowing once the illness has past, so too will the vomit. I on the other hand do not know the day, the hour, or the minute, but I know it is coming.

I really hope things are better now and your sweet girls are feeling well.
