April Fools Day?

Growing up, this was another holiday I hated because it usually went like this, kids (annoying little boys) would say in that taunting tone "April's a Fool Day, April's a Fool, April's a Fool" and that would go on pretty much all day. So I used to love it when April 1st landed on a weekend. Now that I am a grown up I don't mind it at all and it is actually pretty funny to hear Colin try to trick me. But here is something that happened today that is NO JOKE. Poor Max has come down with a fever and threw up all over me. All I could do was sit there and wait for breastmilk vomit to soak into my clothes so it wouldn't get all over the couch. It got on the pillows which now reside in the garbage. Oh how I wish it were a joke.

I also woke up with a hurty skinned elbow and a bruised knee. From what you may ask? Well yesterday at aerobics, the kids play all around the outskirts of the gym and when I was sashay-ing, a little boy came out from behind the dividers and I did a dive to avoid him. I ended up doing a penguin like sliding landing. Very graceful, again no joke. I also took out my friend Heather with my feet during my tumble. We were laughing SO hard!! What a few couple of days it has been.

Poor mama! I hate when my babies are sick. I feel so helpless. And falling is never fun. I hope things turn around for you.

Not that fun of a day, April Fool's Day or not. I don't care what "they" say, it doesn't make it any better if it is your child's puke or not! Also, I can totally see that penquin-style dive in my head! It is a great little show going on in there...my head, that is. Hope Max feels better soon. Sick babies are not fun. For the mama or the baby.

I'm sorry your a bit on the sour side. I can only imagine your graceful fall, and laugh along with you. Hope Max feels better, vomitting is not fun at all. If it helps, my baby it a constant spitter-upper. I go through carpet cleaner like it's milk. Have a better day!
