Getting used to the puke.

How likely is it that I would be woken up two days in a row by being vomited on? Well, people. It happened. Maisie has been sick. Very sick. It isn’t that she has the stomach flu. It is that she is coughing so much that she ends up gagging on something and then puking her milk all over me. It is so freakin’ gross. But I will tell you something…It is the BEST alarm to get out of bed! It wakes me right up, like a freshly brewed cup of coffee and a cold shower. A cold shower of pukey milk. Sick. Anyways, I jump out of bed ready to start the day. Surprisingly, it hasn’t made me angry. I am an angry waker and usually being woken up any other way than naturally waking up in the late morning will make me go ape and want to scratch people’s eyes out. Ok, not that bad, but pretty bad. I think Justin purposely avoids me in the mornings.

So with all that to say, I am going to be thankful for the two days of vomit filled wakings, for I know that tomorrow I will probably be woken up in my normal frustrated, why did God create mornings, attitude.

    That’s what you get for co-sleeping. ha ha ha, just kidding.
    Praying for God to heal Maisie quickly!
    Perhaps also to help you be more of a morning person. 🙂 I also do not like mornings, I like to sleep in. Just wait, someday you’ll have to get up and get the kiddo’s ready for school early………..when it’s still dark out.
    Oh, I sound like I’m complaining. LOL!

    Hey Diane! Let me just say that I am already dreading waking up early to get Maisie ready for school! YUCK! I think that will be Justin’s job if he is around in the mornings! 🙂

    Nah, you get used to it…not happily or easily, but you do get used to it. I promise!
