Kindergarten plague

1 May



The only thing better than one puking kid is ALL OF THEM puking.





It’s been a long night, folks, and the day isn’t looking much better.


We’ll get to strippers and austerity spending (yes, I’m going to link them) tomorrow.


Oh dear.  Mr. JB is looking a little pale this morning, too.




See you tomorrow!


Lots of love,

    your daughter has a couch bed?

    Bunk bed actually.

    That’s just some random picture from the internet of a kid puking.

    Very much like my night, though.

    The sound of puke hitting the floor from the top bunk at 230 AM.

    That’s the moment when you wish you had a dachshund instead of three kids.

    It’s the inevitable downside of living with other people…one person gets sick, and then everybody gets sick.

    I doubt dachshund puke is any more pleasant to clean up than kid puke, though. And at least kids will eventually learn to clean up after themselves. 🙂

    Even as a kid, I always thought it was a shame that people felt so sick when they were puking their guts out. I felt this way because I wanted to laugh. I’ve always felt it’s a hilarious human motion/stance/behavior.

    Yes, I couldn’t stop laughing at parts of “Jackass”.

    Get your family well.

    We’ll get to strippers and austerity spending (yes, I’m going to link them) tomorrow.

    When it comes to strippers, I am not at all in favor of austerity.

    Sorry to hear about the puking kids. I used to wonder why I would usually come down with a cold toward the end of September or early October each year. Then I realized that it was caused by the fact that kids had returned to school and enough time had passed for them to pass around a nasty bug among themselves and then smear it on nearly every surface in Manhattan–especially public transport–to pass it on to me.

    Perhaps they should rename “kindergarten” as “massively toxic disease incubator” instead…

    Oh no! And I was anxiously awaiting stripper talk! 🙂
    Hope the fam gets well soon JB. Stay healthy.

    My folks always freaked out when I hurled, which made the whole thing much more of a trauma than it needs to be. I treat it now as a matter-of-fact thing and no big deal, with a soulful big-eyed nod and “it’s not fun, is it?” The happychicklet therefore follows my lead and doesn’t sweat it NEARLY as much as I did as a kid.

    Hope everybody feels better, soon!

    Aw. I hope everyone feels better soon.

    I’ve already gotten to the strippers, but thanks anyway.

    Oh no, that sucks bad. Hope everyone heals up soon.

    Haha! My second son is so considerate, he has never puked in any place that would be inconvenient for me. Even when he was just a baby (he started walking at 10 months, climbing at 8). No matter how bad he has ever felt, he has either puked in the toilet, or the nearest cup/bucket.

    By contrast, his older brother puked on my new, white, Italian (dryclean only) couch a week after I bought it. Every time he had to throw up, he made sure to run to my bed or the middle of a room…even if the bathroom was much closer. He takes after me most. Karma is lol, I’m sure.

    My darling son got a bad vomiting bug when he was about 2. And every single time he was about to puke, he turned to Mummy in dismay. Yep. ALLLL the puke went into my cleavage. Even when we were right by the toilet, and he’d had his head down it retching – when the puke came, he turned to me.

    Hope it’s over soon, JB!

    Sorry…but LOL!
    This gave me a smile this morning. Mommy stories! 🙂
    They are even better than nursing stories (yet very similar in a way).
