A Gentle Reminder

Sometimes, even the most seasoned of mothers needs a refresher and I am here to help.

First of all, before ripping a diaper off a toddler and flinging it open, always check to make sure that there are not a thousand little poop drummels in said diaper. I think that is clear enough.

Secondly, when a child, who has been complaining of a tummy ache, says that he thinks he is going to throw up, DO NOT PAUSE!!!!!!! You must spring into action immediately, fling the nursing baby away if you have to! Quickly move the vomitus child to a toilet or other nearby receptacle. Then make sure the child is actually done puking before beginning the clean up. Under no circumstances should you allow the child to wander the house aimlessly while puking in multiple rooms.

Just remember, I fail, so you don't have to.

This brings back memories, and not such fond ones at that!

That's funny. You could pray for a child who, at the tender age of 3 or 4, gets up on his own to puke, takes cares care of it himself and then tells you about it in the morning. That's what I got with the first one. It went downhill from there!
