Summer Puke

Le Stomach Bug has descended upon The Planet Pink once again.  Sigh.  We had a really good run of health, only to be cut off at the 3 month mark by all things nasty.  As soon as I heard the words, "honey, Princess #2 just threw up everywhere", I knew we were in for a looooooong week.  Why is it we can't get the princesses to willingly share ANYTHING except stomach bugs?

So, unless you want to be entertained with gross stories of puke and other unpleasantness, I don't have much to share.  We did have one humorous moment in which hubby and I heard from the living room Princess #2 declare to Princess #3 in a rather annoyed tone:  "Stop BREATHING on me!".  Ah, brings back memories of childhood doesn't it?

We are resting up this weekend in hopes of a healthy and productive week ahead.  In the meantime, Chelsea over at Adventures in Vandyland honored me with another blog award.  How fun!

Random moment:  is this quote from a movie?  I (quite nerdily - is that a word?) googled it but came up with nothin'.  Seems like it should be....

ANYWAY, I'd love to pass this award on to 4 brand new (to me) blogs I've discovered in the past week.  

Be sure to check these ladies out!  

And let me leave you with a bit of advice.  Mamas do not get sick days.  Ever.  If you and your hubby (or significant other) ever decide to get sick on the same day, it will ALWAYS be THEM that gets sick worse, and thus by default you will be called upon to not only care for your own sick self, but also for your gaggle of children who, by the very nature of Murphy's Law, will NOT currently be sick enough to stay in bed and sleep all day like little angels, but rather only be sick enough to whine and complain when you don't get them food quickly enough or put in the right movie.  Thus leaving you feeling like death warmed over by the time you drag your tired, sick body to bed and lay down next to hubby, who has been sleeping his sick off all day long.  Consider yourself warned.


  1. Congrats on the award! Back in April we had a TERRIBLE time with the stomacb flu! It was awful!

    Your blog is super cute! I love it! And thank you for following at mommy monologues!!! I'm following you back! Your kiddos are pretty darn cute, but I bet you knew that already didn't you?!

  2. Oh, I am sooo sorry to hear about your week, but (and forgive me) I couldn't help but smile when I read your post as it is soooooo true!!!! They (hubby included) are almost always sicker, more tired, whatever, which leaves mommy to still take care of everyone... Hope this week will be better in every way.

  3. HAHA! After the birth of each of my 3 babies I willed myself to contract some mild, nondescript infection, which would send me back to the hospital for "tests" or something... nothing serious. I just needed a little rest, and I really thought this might be my only avenue.

    I completely know where you're coming from. TRUST ME, my husband's menstrual cramps are WAY worse than mine!

    I hope you all feel better soon!

  4. I also have a husband who is always, always sicker than I am. It's just the rules of life, I think, that the man will always be sicker. I love your blog. I am becoming a follower. I hope you'll do the same for me.

  5. Sorry to hear your house has the bug! Yucky!!
    The only thing worse than your Murphy's Law statement is to be a sick working mom. Who has to care for all plus sick hubby and go to work bright and early the next morning....I have had many of those days.
    It will be a better week.

  6. Oh Susan, yes, I have done that too. And that is worse than all of the above. Miserable!

  7. Congratulations on the award, but boo about being sick!!! I got mastitis when my daughter was about 4 weeks old & luckily my husband was able to stay home & clearly I wasn't contagious, so I pretty much nursed my daughter & he did everything else. I don't look forward to the days later when she is older & we are all sick at once. Definitely not going to be a good time...


Let me know what you think!
