Puke Puke Puke!

Today was one of the those days that tests you and I'm not sure I passed. Our daughter Claire is having some issues with food textures and a very quick gag reflex. She has been throwing up alot lately. Today was no exception. I had to go grocery shopping today. By the time we got out of the house it was already lunch time. I decided to go to McDonald's on the way out of town. There was a sign that said we're currently not accepting debit and credit cards. I had one dollar on me, I never have any cash. So we left and headed towards another McDonald's closer to the store. The kids were not happy. Claire didn't understand why, she just wanted her nuggets. We arrived at the other McDonald's 25 minutes later. We waited in the drive thru line and finally got up there. What did the voice from the box say "sorry we're not able to accept debit or credit cards right now". Now I had to leave again without getting any food for the kids. Claire was screaming and hungry and Loch was concerned about what we're going to do. So I went to our bank to get some cash from the atm and wouldn't you know it temporarily out of order. So I pull around to go inside. Sign on the door says lobby closed temporarily. At this point I'm think you have got to be kidding me. So I pulled around to the window to write myself a check. The ladies informed me that someone hit a pole line and all the credit and atm machines were down in town and surrounding towns. Anyway we got the cash and I got the kids their happy meals. Then after eating in the car and breastfeeding the baby we were off again. I loaded everybody into the cart and headed towards the kids/baby department. I picked up the diapers and wipes and then I heard it. That noise that Claire makes. Its kind of like a gag cough. It came out of nowhere she wasn't coughing and she wasn't eating any kind of weird textured foods. I tried to calm her with your ok, its ok. It didn't work, once she makes that noise it's to late. I grabbed Adelyn's blanket to help contain it. It didn't work all that well. She got it all over her shirt, shorts and in her hair. Meanwhile the baby is crying at the top of her lungs and Lochlan is dancing around saying I have to go pee I have to go pee. I was about to give up right there and then. I ripped open the wipe box so I could clean her up a little. Then I picked out an outfit and I changed her right there. Did I mention that I don't do very well with puke. I'm trying to keep from puking as well. After we cleaned up I took Loch to the bathroom. I was going to leave and come back without the kids, but Claire was fine. So we pushed on and got the groceries. Then on the way home she pooped her pants and leaked out of her diaper. So those pants that I bought lasted about 45 minutes before they were stained with poop. We got home and I put Claire down for a late nap and sat down to feed the baby. I was exhausted!! Why am I staying up this late to write this, I don't know. Good Night!!!

How Time Flies!

We just celebrated our sons 5th birthday. How can that be? Last week we signed him up for T-ball. Today his teacher came over for a home visit and gave him his kindergarten tub. Kindergarten and t-ball, he's getting soooo big. I swear the day after his birthday he grew three inches and looked like he was ten. Usually he chunks up around his birthday then grows taller and evens out, but not this year. He never chunked he just stayed tall and slender. He is really becoming a handsome young man. His vocabulary amazes me all the time. One word that he has been using and that just cracks me up is per se. We also signed him up for swimming lessons. And so it begins Moms taxi service. I can't wait, what fun we have ahead of us!!!

Mother's Day

One thing I love about having my own blog is that I can write on it when ever I want. Three times a day or not for 2 weeks. Yesterday was Mother's day, I had a pretty good day. The weather was cold, so my plans for playing outside with the kids and planting flowers didn't happen. So we played inside and took it easy for a while. We had donuts from the local bakery that was a nice treat. The kids each gave me a card that they picked out with daddy and inside was a gift card for Home Depot to get some more flowers. My husband surprised me with a mac laptop and wireless internet. I'm so happy!!!! Lately with having to feed Adelyn so often, I'm sitting in the living room breastfeeding and thinking of all the other things I could be getting done. Don't get me wrong I enjoy the time I have with her but I could also be paying bills, responding to emails, keeping up with my Uppercase Living job and writing in my blog. So there I was feeding Adelyn in the chair in the living room surfing the web and watching HGTV, life's good!!

After Claire woke up from her nap we went over to John's parents house to say happy mother's day to his mom and give her her gift. I thought we could go to home depot after that so I could pick out some new flowers. We stayed at John's parents a little longer than I thought we would. It was 5:30 by the time we were leaving so I decided that I wanted Chinese for dinner and after that we could go get flowers. This was the first time that all five of us went to a restaurant together. I told John that I could handle the baby and keep her happy if he would help the other two with their food.

As soon as we sat down the baby started to cry, she was hungry, so I started to feed her. John went and got the kids their food everything was going pretty good, Claire tipped over her choc. milk but only a little bit spilled out. John probably made 10 trips back and forth getting everyone their food. We were about half way through when Claire got that too familiar look on her face and started to gag. Once that happens we know she's going to get sick. Sure enough John's holding her hair back while she is puking into a plate on the table. By the time it was done she had filled up two plates. I don't know whats with me but in recent years I can't handle the smell and start to gag. So our poor little girl just puked up her dinner, I'm next to her gagging and trying not to throw up. All the while Loch's saying how gross it is and that he can't watch and mommy mommy please don't do it. John and I both said in unison Lochlan be quiet!! Luckily I didn't get sick and Adelyn was very good during the whole thing since I had to put her down quickly to help Claire.

After all of that we were pretty much done. Then we went by McDonalds to get Claire a chix nugget and apple dippers. We went over to home depot to get some flowers and they had just closed. That was a big bummer b/c it was going to be nice to have some help with the kids while I picked stuff out.
