Parenting tip…

It is good to teach your children the importance of triage. Always give the most urgent information at the beginning of the conversation. For example…

“Mom, mom, mom,”(thump, thump, thump on my head this morning), “is it time to wake up yet?”

“No JD, go back to bed”

whine, whine, whine “but I want to get up”

“No, its too early. Go back to bed!”

“Pleeeeease can we get up?”

“NO JD! Stop asking. I said no.”

“But Annaliese is throwing uuuuuup.” whine, whine, whine

“Annaliese is throwing up?!” I jump out of bed, push the 4 yr old aside, hurdle the dog. Arriving in Annaliese’s room to see…yick. There it is. The classic bed throw up. Must be time to clean the house again.

“Thanks for waking me up JD. That was the right thing to do.”

Yippee!!! TV day!!!!

    I am so thankful my son is not a pukey kid. He has only thrown up twice in 3 years. Once when he had pneumonia and then we were out for Chinese food. We had ate our dinner and were sitting there talking and our son was standing on the seat between us and just threw up. ALL OVER ME! Then he was fine. I know it wasn’t the food cause everyone else was fine. And he wasn’t sick any more. I do almost the same thing. I turn on cartoons and give him breaky and go back to bed. 6 am is TOO early!

  3. I have to confess I was the night throw-upper. Haven’t thrown up in years though since moving out of my parent’s house, so there’s hope 🙂

    Hi there! since this blogpage is about parenting, I would like to share with you my recent posting about school institutions that are making a business out of educating kids. This may be relevant to you as you are sending or probably will send your little ones to school soon. We know that this money making scheme of some school owners are proliferating now adays. When you read the article, you will have an idea of what kind of school you enroll your kids into.

  5. Don’t ya just love toddler random puking? We were enjoying a nice dinner at Olive Garden a couple weekends ago, and Zoe (2 1/2) apparently didn’t agree with the “chunky” marinara sauce and up it came. Luckily hubby caught most of it with her bib. I was ready to box up and go home. Nothing ruins a dinner like puking.
