Playing Catch-up

*This is only for those with an iron stomach.

We've had an interesting time since the last entry. Last Thursday, I left for the grocery and on the drive back I get a call from Kevin saying that Ben had thrown up. We didn't think much of it because sometimes he gets himself worked up and does weird things like that. We kept an eye on him, watched what he ate, and he seemed fine, even an hour after it happened. Then he threw up on Saturday, just as we were about to let them spend the night at Grandma and Grandpa's. It was red and all over their rug. We came home and put him to bed, and it was pretty much over, until the bug left by way of his bottom with a huge, liquid-y Hershey explosion on Monday.

Nope, not over yet! Charlie and Louie were hit next, and boy! was it messy. They still haven't figured out how to use the toilet or the little waste basket I set out for them. Poor Kevin came home from work on Tuesday and pretty much slept until Wednesday evening. Today, we all seem to be doing fine and I hope that it stays that way for a long while. There's still a faint "Kings Island LaRosa's Pizza Stand" sort of scent running around the house, if you know what I'm talking about. I can't figure out where it's coming from...

  • Louie finished Level 1 of swim lessons today. Although Miss Emily was very proud of him, she thinks it's a good idea for him to repeat the level until he can be under water for three seconds, because they do a lot of underwater stuff at Level 2. He went down the slide again and even though he had Emily go with him, he grinned the whole way down!
  • Charlie is sleeping through the night! Yikes--did I just jinx myself? Yes, he's 11 months old (can you believe it?) and I really think it is all the running around he does that wipes him out at the end of the day.
  • Ben is a somersaulting-fool! I don't know where he learned it. We were downstairs doing laundry and he did three in a row. He's having an awful time remembering that you're not supposed to do it off of couches, but the 99th time's a charm. As a side note, Lou is not good at doing somersaults.

So, I just puked in my mouth a little. Glad everyone is feeling better.

P.S. - you do so many fun things with the kids! Poor Tay is lucky if she even gets to play in the sprinklers!
