I Smell Of Vomit & Pedialyte.

Here is a list of things that will happen in your life, should your 13 month old child ever become violently ill with the flu:
  • Ineveitably, you will wash every single piece of clothing and blanket that he owns because it's all covered in vomit. Like, cups and cups of vomit. Like, how did this much vomit even come out of this little body, vomit. Oh, and you'll also hose down BOTH strollers, because those got vommed in, too.
  • You will make midnight runs to Walgreens for copious amounts of grape Pedialyte, which strangely, tastes delicious. The sales associate will also look at you, all rugged and ragged in your sweatpants and sorry excuse for a tee shirt and just say, "I'm sorry."
  • You will sleep very little, worried that he might vom in his sleep and choke on it.
  • You will neglect your blog, Facebook, Twitter and internet friends - not because you don't love them, but because you have literally no energy left to give to any other cause.
  • You will, despite every effort to shower, scrub, disinfect and cleanse everything in your house (including you), still smell vomit everywhere you go because the scent is burned into your nostrils like a hot, schwetty day at a open-air fish market.
  • You will ADORE your husband for staying home with the babe, because your job is currently mind-blowingly insane and busy.
And then, when everyone is healthy again, you will breathe a sigh of relief and say hello to your internet friends once again. Hello, friends.

Oh I can totally sympathize! Last time Liam had the flu he threw up for 5 days. FIVE DAYS!!! WTF.

We ended up just throwing out the rug from our dining room. It had been spewed on too many times.

So glad he's feeling better. Here's hoping you don't get it!
