Tummy Bug

by Toiny Westberry on 26 February 2011
in Kids Pin this scrappy stuff!

We are on the tail end of the tummy bug.  It’s not a big deal when Christian, 18, or Cole, 13 have it.  They are big and can take care of themselves.  A little hot tea, some chicken soup, a sympathetic look and I’m done.  But when the little ones, Dane and Tessa, get sick… well… my life gets a little tougher.
I’m a huge fan of horror movies.  Always have been.  Something about being scared out of my skin just makes me feel alive.  However, when the lovely puke scene from the Exorcist visits my bedroom in the middle of the night.  Not a big fan.


I’d literally gotten all tucked in and comfortable, and believe Dave when he says this is a process, when Dane sat up (we are in the process of weaning him from our bed, he’s currently on a mattress in our room) and literally projectile vomited halfway across the room.  It’s a big room.
And, honestly, I’m mom enough that one time would have been fine.  But he repeated this 4 times through the night.  Why?  Why? Why can’t little guys ever make it to the toilet on time?
The really, truly horrible part?  I’m still washing it all up.  I’ve got a lovely, top-of-the-line even, 5kg washing machine.  I so miss my extra huge capacity US-spec washer.  And my dryer is not a dryer.  It’s a centrifuge.  Or as I like to call it a “Water Sucker Outer”.  The clean-up is taking me forever.
Cole, age 8

First Fountain Pen

by Toiny Westberry 23 February 2011

  We got up extra early this morning because Tess had forgotten her to do her homework.  As it turns out, first thing in the morning is a great time to do homework.  She got third in a class competition (that I completely do not understand) using the “8’s”.  A big deal since she was […]

Toe Socks

by Toiny Westberry 19 February 2011

Last night I was watching an old episode of Bones.  Tucked in my bed, warm, tired, my arm propped up on a pillow with a wonderfully soothing bag of ice over it.  At the footend of my bed were Tess & Dane.  Also tucked in, not very soothing.   After the opening salvo, the Bones […]

Best Friends

by Toiny Westberry 16 February 2011

While I have some gorgeous pictures of my cut-on, stitched-up elbow, I’m not sharing.  For all I know you are eating your breakfast & drinking a cup of coffee (my favorite activity while reading newsletters) and I really don’t want to interfere with your enjoyment of some quiet time.   So, instead, a picture of […]
