About a Stomach Bug

A stomach bug has visited the land of minjenah and I have to say that fucker is an unwelcome guest.

First Kidlet , in her words, told me, "Mommy, my butt exploded."  That happened for a few days and then there was a great big puke that involved me washing not only her bedding (and this kid has WAY too much bedding) but also the stuffed animals that are her favorite because she sleeps with them every night. And she also flung chunks of vomit throughout the bathroom so I had to clean the towels and bathmats and all other surfaces.  She ended up sleeping on some beach towels because those are easier to clean.

Then Chuy pukes a few days later. While it is happening,  I realize that she is about to puke so I grab her shirt and improvise a makeshift container to hold it and ask kidlet to bring me the bucket that was in her room.  She cannot find it. So I wait on her to find it and then Chuy gets the bath treatment.  Then I take all of her toys and blankets out of her crib because I do not feel like washing more bedding since it took me a few days to get everything under control from Kidlet's vomitorium.

Then Chuy pukes at midnight.  She pukes into her blanket bag and outside her blanket bag.  So back to the bath we go.  But this time I put her in, clothes and all because I am going to have wash the chunkies out of the clothes anyway so I might as well get it all done at once.

Chuy finds the idea of wearing clothes while bathing distressing.  She yells an me, "No SOCKS, I no LIKE IT, Za za NAKED mommy! "  And then we clean her up and put her back to bed.

Today Chuy had a poop that leaked through her clothes, blanket bag and onto her sheets.  It was up to her shoulders  So again with a bath. And another load of laundry,

I have used two whole bottles of laundry detergent this week.

So fuck off stomach bug.  Go bother someone hateful.

How they watch TV


007
Chuy is sitting with her baby.  Kidlet is snuggled up.  That is Chuy's favorite baby.  It was originally kidlet's but now it is Chuy's.  Kidlet wrote her name on it but Chuy cannot read so how well does that work?

Funny Things

Last night, Kidlet told me two of her stuffed animals got married.


Chuy calls herself Zsa Zsa
