B, post puke show
If you want a good laugh you should read this. But if you have the flu I recommend not reading ahead...

Karma's a beast. Remember when I mentioned B's little puking episode at the end of yesterday's post? Turns out I missed all the action then but made up for it today. Apparently she didn't puke because she was having a melt down. I should've known.

I woke up this morning to find her laying in her own puke. Her hair was spackled to the side of her face and everything in her bed was a crusty mess. Surprisingly enough she didn't seem to mind. She made her bed and was lying in it.

Our day went ahead as usual. We ran to the bank, the post office, Sprouts, and the beauty supply store (I needed top coat). At the store she requested some milk. Now I'm no idiot. I know that dairy is no bueno for toddlers with upset tummies. So I figured I would play it safe with flax milk. It freaking says "non-dairy" on the carton for crying out loud.

We got to the car and I filled her cup up on the spot. Besides, she was saying "please" and "thank you Mama" so sweetly I couldn't resist. Fast forward to thirty minutes later in our backyard (thank God this didn't happen in the beauty supply store). B was in her swing while I was watering some plants and then I heard her frantically say, "Mama up! Mama up!" Before it happened I knew it was coming. So I did what any good/smart mother would do and backed up. ;) Sure enough projectile flax milk spewed from her little mouth all over the concrete. She seemed surprised but not upset in the least bit. I really thought I hit the lotto on this one...a) we were outside b) she was in her $2 jammies and c) Bella was there to lick it all up. Yup, it was a pretty tasty sight watching her enjoy B's seconds. Yummy.

Needless to say I haven't fed her anymore dairy, fake or real. And we spent the rest of the morning outside with her in her diaper. It's been in the 80's here so that was a win.

The ironic thing is that I was telling someone yesterday how B has never thrown up. Ever. Like in her whole two years of existence. Ha. Jokes on me. So next time you think you're outsmarting the dairy fairies by giving your kid "dairy free" milk you're not. And you better get home real quick afterwards or at least bring your dog in the car. ;)

  4. I'm not sick, but I might be after reading this! Ha! Seriously though the stomach flu is no joke. I had it twice last Winter. I wouldn't wish it on my worst enemy. Poor B!!

  5. Yep. Went through this same exact chain of events about 2 weeks ago but with soy milk. Beware, I got it shortly after my daughter...

  9. It's funny how you can always count on your dog to clean up the mess (whether you want them to or not!!)

  12. Oh, poor baby. Was she freaked out about it? The first time Mac threw up like he I think it scared him more than anything. He said "burp?" like he was confused because he thought it would be a burp but it was so much more! :) Poor kiddos.
