NOT for the Feint of Heart!

Here is my warning!!! If you get easily grossed out... stop NOW!!! OK, I've said it!

So on the way home from the fireworks Braeden began saying he had an upset stomach. He was moaning and groaning and mom was not being so nice about it after a while! :( It took a while to even get out of the parking lot. He finally said he would need to use the bathroom once we got home and I told him that was a good idea. That kid ATE when we were at the buffet and had a bunch of candy at the fireworks!

About one block - ONE BLOCK - from home, I glance back and he said, "I think I'm going to throw up."

I said, "Oh honey try to wait, breathe, you'll be ok..."


This is what happened ONE BLOCK from home!


So I hosed him off in the shower, cleaned the floor in the house he "dripped" on walking through, got the kids to bed with Braeden on my bedroom floor on a towel and with a garbage can, and gathered items to clean with. I picked up as much as I could with towels and then using a little dishsoap in water, scrubbed with a dish sponge (now in the garbage!). Can't believe how great it cleaned and how nice it looks!!! I may have to do the rest of the van!

Now the only thing worrying me is what it will smell like in the morning! :( Luckily a few people on FB have given me some great advice, so hopefully we'll be ok. Here's hoping B's not sick tomorrow!!!

When I read "buffet" in your last post... I knew what was coming next. LOL! My first kiddo (RAD, asperger’s, etc...) was a pro over-eater/vomit-er! But I was blessed I guess in the area that he could hold it until he could get to the bowl and never missed the toilet. Hey…we take our blessings where we can get them. You will have to share some of the FB hints you got regarding odor. I sure they would helpful in other areas.

Happy 4th and …Peace!

My 7 year old is a projectile fact she kind of looks like a sprinkler when she does it, because she almost always turns her head from side to side while ...well you get the picture.

The last time she was sick it was all over the bed, her comforter (practically brand new!) and even her pillow. We had set a towel on the floor by her bed and a medium size trash can...not a single bit got in or on those, but she did stratigically get the wall and the bottom of the bunk above her! I threw most everything out...can't stand the smell.

Do we get awards for this...prizes, something? Oh yeah, we get to be called Mom, I think that's worth it!

What you should know about HIV

-HIV can NOT be spread through casual/household contact. HIV is not spread through hugging, kissing, shaking hands, sharing toys, sneezing, coughing, sharing food, sharing drinks, bathing, swimming or any other casual way. It has been proven that HIV and AIDS can only be spread through sexual contact, birth, breastfeeding and blood to blood contact (such as sharing needles). - HIV is now considered a chronic but manageable disease. With treatment, people who are HIV+ can live indefinitely without developing AIDS and can live long and full lives. - People who are HIV+ deserve to be treated with love, respect, support and acceptance as all people do. Additional information on transmission of HIV can be found on the Center for Disease Control website:

Little Did I Know

Little did I know that the road would be so rocky
Little did I know that the trip would take so long
Little did I know that my heart could hurt so much
Little did I know that God is never wrong

Little did I know that love could be so powerful
Little did I know that a dream so far could go
Little did I know that God would place the right ones
Little did I know that my heart, so large, could grow

Little did I know that a dream has it’s own timing
Little did I know that this day would finally come
Little did I know that four souls would be sent to guide me
Little did I know that they would choose to call me mom

But God knew all along and He had a plan to follow
God knew all along that my dream would soon come true
God knew all along that we five should be together
God knew all along that I’d share it all with you
