Stomach flu

Sam woke up in the middle of the night a few days ago and threw up. I hate the sound of my kids throwing up in the middle of night because 1) I know they don't feel well and (more selfishly) 2) I know I'm going to be cleaning up a stinky mess for awhile.

I am actually relieved he threw up in his bed because we just had our carpets cleaned two days before this incident. So I got him out of bed, took his icky jammies off, gave him a quick rinse in the bath and as I was cleaning up the rest of the mess I turned around to find him zonked out in the hall. It was just so sad and cute that I had to get a picture.I'm not sure if Sam has a weaker system than the rest of us, but he gets the stomach flu a lot. In January he threw up 18 days in a row. I took him to his pediatrician a few times and even the ER, but he was fine, just throwing up. No one else in the house got sick this time around, I don't know what to think of it.

That is so so sad. Poor little guy.
PS Your carpets look super good.

Sometimes kids just get bugs. Hope he's feeling better.

I'm so happy with how they look, you can see a stain by Sam's leg that didn't go away, but it looks 100 times better. That hallway was a disaster!!

Poor Sammy :( Hope he's doing lots better. I can't believe you've had the energy to organize and clean your house like that. Thinking about doing that to my house makes me tired! I hope the right person comes along soon!!!
