Out of necessity.
Cooper threw up big time.
It was the first time that I can remember either of my kids throwing up in the car. Usually they save it for the middle of the night, just as they are standing over my side of the bed telling me that they don’t feel good.
I’ve been kind of spoiled. I have very bad gag reflexes so Dave usually cleans up the vomit. No such luck tonight, he is working a late shift and won’t be home until after midnight. My friend Lisa said I should leave it for him (as I was gagging and crying on the phone to her while trying to clean it up). I thought about it for a bit, but then decided that by the time he got home it would be dry and crusty and extra stinky in my car. So I drug out the 409, the Folex Stain Remover, the Febreze, a roll of paper towels, the shop vac and the hose and I cleaned up the whole mess by myself. Out came the car seat and the floormats. I used the hose on both of those along with the clothes that I stripped Coop out of outside before sending him in to the shower.
Then the shop vac for everything else, so Dave if you are reading this…………..
ummmm, the shop vac is going to need to be emptied and cleaned out tomorrow. Yeah, thanks!
The worst part of it all is that Coop isn’t even sick. He just gagged on his own spit and ended up coughing so hard that up came the contents of his stomach. Which by the way was FULL of movie theatre popcorn and Panda Express Orange Chicken. That about ruins it for me on both of those foods.
Speaking of movie theatre popcorn and Panda Express Orange chicken. (both of which I used to like!) We saw Kung Fu Panda today. It was the last day of school and we celebrated with a movie. It was very cute. Well, what I remember of it anyways. I did fall asleep for about 20 minutes.
Speaking of the last day of school. (see how this is all related? me neither.) Guess what the new elementary school trend is? Well, besides this. It’s digital scrapbooks. Instead of the big bulky, plastic comb bound, labor intensive scrapbook of the whole year, Ben came home with a sweet little DVD with a 20 minute digital scrapbook of pictures from the whole year all set to fabulous little tunes like Somewhere Over the Rainbow by IZ and Kids of the Future by Jonas Brothers . How great is that? I just may be able to get his entire school career into one Rubbermaid box afterall. Actually it makes me almost want to volunteer for room mom just to be sure that it happens again next year.
I said almost.
Alright, enough random blather.
Tonight I leave you with the great philosophical words of Master Shifu:
“Don’t stand that close. I can smell your breath.”
Thursday morning edit……….
So I didn’t do such a great job cleaning my car in the dark last night. I neglected to notice that he had managed to projectile all over the back of the drivers seat.
Good thing I left the windows open all night.
