Can you think of anything worse than cleaning up vomit?
How about cleaning up vomit everytime you get in the car?
Apparently, Elizabeth gets car sick.
Last week when she spewed orange chunks all over Jacob after we'd retrieved him from school, I figured she had a stomach bug and limited her meals to bananas and toast and bright red pedialyte most of the weekend. When she yakked again yesterday, I thought maybe she still had a touch of the bug. This morning when I caught her in the rearview mirror spraying the back car seat as if she were auditioning for the remake of The Exorcist, I was going through the list of all possible deadly puking illnesses because, dang, that just ain't right! Salmonella? We haven't been around any dirty amphibians lately. E. Coli? She doesn't eat meat. Reflux? Again? Oh no! Please not the reflux again. Then Adam started crying, "Sissy is car sick Mommy....Sissy bummetted all ober me"
Duh. She's car sick. Is that even possible? Can babies get car sick? I've never heard of anything like that. But, she's only sick when we're in the car. Isn't that the definition of car sick? UGH.
You do realize we are in the car twice a day, right?
Do you know how much fun it is to scrub your child, your car seat, and your car twice a day?
Do you know how lucky you are to be driving a car that doesn't smell like Gerber bananas vomit?
I don't know what to do about this. She's only sixteen pounds so I can't turn the seat around yet. Does anyone else have car sick children? If so, spill it. And if you could give me some tips in the next hour before I have to get in the car again, it would be much appreciated.
Let's see....no sleep, tantrums in public, lots and lots of vomit. Refresh my memory. Parenting is lots of fun how?
