Things I've Learned

1. 24 hours after a stomach bug is too soon to give a Toddler milk.

This may result in residual Linda Blair type episodes at random, just when you think you are in the clear.

2. Puke is Puke.

Do not be fooled - just because your child is cute, their puke still stinks.

3. Toddlers can puke in buckets.

Give this one a try. Munchkin now knows that if she feels it coming, to look for a bucket, bowl or trash can - this saved me many times over the last couple of days.

4. Sick = Sweet

Sick babies, as sad as it is to see, are the sweetest things ever. Cherish the cuddle time they are willing to give, it's short lived.

5. Puke no longer begets Puke.

I guess it's true what "they" say, it is different when it's your own child.

I learned similar lessons this weekend too... our house still smells of toddler poo/vomit.
