Into Every Life…

by Stefani on 19-June-2008

… a few Saltines and cups of ginger ale must fall. 

At about 1 o'clock this morning my littlest fella, my little go box carrying, pesto lovin' bunny, began throwing up.

There is no polite way to say that is there? I tried, really I did, but although there are many MANY synonyms, none of them are real sweet. 

He's been fine since that first episode though. Warm, but no sick tummy. 

Frankly, he's milking it for all it's worth. He's fully enjoying the endless cartoons on Papa's computer, and the steady stream of head rubbing and clear liquids being lavished upon him. He even thinks that it's great fun to have that bowl next to him. Oh the suspense, the drama, the excitement of being "He Who Must Not Be Far From the Bowl."


For the mama though, it is never fun when your little guy is feeling bad. It is even less fun in the middle of the night. It is even LESS less fun, when it happens on the day of your other little man's first guitar recital, the day before you are supposed to leave town for a family reunion. 

NO NO NO!!!! 

If you are of the praying persuasion, this is where I beg ask you to lift up the Blue Yonder gang. 

We need a little guy to feel better fast. 
We need his brothers to steer clear of these germs.
We need a little guitar hero to be able to relax, enjoy and celebrate the first of what I'm sure will be many rocking performances. 
I need a nap 🙂 And maybe some chocolate.



and the Blue Yonder Boys

Oh no! So sorry to hear the little one is sick. I’ll be sending some good vibes his and your way.

I hope he feels better soon. These things always come at the best time don’t they!?

Poor babies! This too shall pass… but hopefully not to the sibling 🙂

Poor baby, hope he’s over it quickly (and keeps it to himself!)

I also had to ask…is that a double wedding ring quilt? Because I have a double wedding ring quilt done in those exact same colors/patterns – rose, pink & navy blue – that my grandma made for me around 1988. Yours looks identical!

already said one, especially that you can keep this contained just to him. tummy bugs are THE WORST!

heather jane June 19, 2008 at 9:53 am

Ugh. I do not do this well. The puking thing sends me into a downward spiral in a hurry. I can’t relax for fear of the next episode. You’d think it was me puking rather than my children. So if you are like me…you really do need a nap. And lots of chocolate. And many, many prayers. Here they come…(the prayers anyway. I’m a little far to get you chocolate as fast as you need it.)

unfair! Hurry and get better so you can continue yr wonderous world explorations little one!

Molly June 19, 2008 at 10:13 am

I remember when I was little and sick… being able to watch movies all day (The Neverending Story) or peppermint stick ice cream at night (hmm, what kind of sick was that?). Hoping the germs scatter soon.

crappy dealio Stefani! I will be thinking about you guys and hoping that boy of yours starts feeling better and that his brothers steer clear of the plague.

Good luck!

kristin June 19, 2008 at 11:32 am

Hi, Stefani!!
I know exactly how you feel. My kids have been sick a lot this winter. Your son looks pretty content! I am of the praying persuasion and I will pray for you. I also added you to my blog roll last night. I absolutely love your blog!

Diane June 19, 2008 at 1:14 pm

Ew, sorry friend. The prayers are coming…

Oh Stef! Hope your weekend goes as planned. Of course we will be praying for all of you!

OMSH June 19, 2008 at 4:20 pm

Our green bowl is nowhere near as pretty. Why are all puke bowls green?

Saying a prayer for ya.

Em June 19, 2008 at 5:02 pm

Oh Man! Sorry about the Yuckiness getting into your place! I hope your little man is better soon, and that it stays away from everyone else! Have fun at your reunion! FYI – I taggged you on my blog!
