Wordless Wedesday: FwohUps

Posted in Blog | 13 comments

Two weeks ago the flu hit our house with a vengeance.  One by one, day after day, the kids fell victim to this stomach bug.  It was gross…it was tiring…SuperDad and I managed to trade off all nighters so the other could sleep…make no question that we had our share of the ick as well.

Ever since then, SuperGirl has used the phrase “Mommy!! I gots moh fwow ups” as a deterrent…to keep herself out of trouble (no one wants fwohups in the corner on their wall, right?)…to keep from going to bed (no one wants fwohups in their bed, right?)…and for cookies??? (“Mommy, I tink cookies make my fwohups feel ahll bedder”).  She is nothing if not creative.

I’ve given her a plastic bowl to keep in her bed…telling her if she actually does throw up that she can call for me and I will most assuredly coddle and soothe her…but not until then.

When we returned from the store today she wanted me to put SuperBaby down for his nap while she put herself to be, telling me to come and kiss her when I was done.  Lamenting the growing of my babies…I did.

Not 5-10 minutes later when I went to check on her…not only did I find her asleep…but I found this:

She had fallen asleep with the stupid bowl on her head!  Not only that…she was sleeping so hard after only 5 or 10 minutes that she didn’t wake up as my flash went off and I took picture after picture of my sleeping beauty:

I should have named this my “Not At All Wordless Wednesday”.
