Just another day

I crawled into bed at 3 this morning and tried to go to sleep. As I laid there, I heard wonderful sounds of snoring from the husband of my youth (my only husband...but Rod says I speak in bible I figured I'd throw that in). So, instead of dwelling on the "Sound of Rod's Music", I decided to pray until I nodded off. Now, at about 6am the man is refreshed from his wonderful nights sleep and as loud as ever. It is a sight to behold. I try to go to sleep as he tells me I am not a morning person. I have ALWAYS been a morning person (until I got married...when I was single I didn't have to wake up to the sound of hacking, shaving, and the hair dryer going...that's OK though) but I really needed some sleep.

Then, it is off to take Morgan to preschool. I made a morning run to purchase some bippees (pacifiers) and then I came home to get ready for her Christmas party and the drama starts to unfold. I told myself I was really going to get a good nap in when we got home. Well, I had a Proverbs 16:9 (9 In his heart a man plans his course,
but the LORD determines his steps.) kind of afternoon.
I get to her party and she was eating some grapes. She then starts to choke and coughs one up. Then, as I was talking to another parent she came and smeared the grape on my shirt in an attempt to give it to me. No big deal, moms are used to being a walking napkin, right. We get out to the car and she starts to project vomit. Then more....and more....and more. Was this a virus or was it from the grape? Then she starts some labored breathing which got me scared. Her pediatricians office was closed for lunch so I took her to the fire department just to be on the safe side. They were so sweet and remembered me from the field trip I went on with my niece. They checked her and one of the men got in the car near her and asked her if she was OK...she projectile vomited as he was sitting there. Fortunately, it landed on me, my keys, and the phone...the other fireman ran into the station to get me some towels as I stood there dumbfounded. They were just about to eat lunch....tasty. They assured me that they had seen worse than that. Then, I took her to children's and they checked her out. She has a virus so it was coincidental but I didn't want to take a chance. The little booger is asleep next to her dad. So far so good.

Oh girl, what a day!! Some days being a mommy can be pretty dirty work, huh!! I hope she starts to feel better soon, there's nothing worse than having to see your baby sick (esp w/ vomiting at this age- it ALWAYS freaks Sara out when she throws up!) Let us know how she's doing and take care of yourself too!! Love ya!

Oh sweet Jenny. Praying for that darling girl and hope that she is done with the projectile thing that she does and YOU or ROD DOES NOT catch it!!!

Love, Fran

The fact that you took her to the fire department might possibly be the funniest thing I have heard this week! I am sorry she is sick. I hope it is just a 12 hour thing!

I'm so sorry Morgan's not feeling well. I will definitely keep her in prayer. As for the projectile vomiting. . well, I feel you pain--been there X 3 kids. It is NOT fun in the least bit.

Please, please, please take care of yourself too, okay. I'm going to pray extra hard for you, Jenny!!

Much love (and sending you some sleep too)

-Bethanne I crack myself up!! I'm a bit of an airhead! =)
oh and i need to shop with are a woman after my own heart! I saw it on your blog!

Cheryl, thank you so much for the prayers. I am about to read my bible and go to sleep.

Jackie and Fran- Being a momma is hard sometimes as you know. Morg. just seems to constantly get a stomach bug with throw up. What is sad is that it doesn't even scare her she is so used to it. =(
