An Ode to Vomit

Vomit on the pillow,
Vomit on the floor.
Vomit in her pretty hair,
A peaceful night no more.

Crying in the bathtub,
Wailing in the hall.
Mom & Dad are busy cleaning,
not getting any sleep at all.

Laundry by the load,
Laundry by the ton.
Hope the laundry soap holds out,
Until this bug is done.

A request for breakfast,
We agreed and held our breath.
Whoops, here it comes again!
Guess we're not done quite yet

The washer kept on running,
We bleached and mopped the floors.
The afternoon was quiet,
The vomit was no more.

We hope this yucky virus,
has really run its course.
For while it was a long night,
It could have been much worse!

Oh my goodness - I am sorry you had to deal with that, but you certainly made me laugh! Now watch the vomit gods hear me and bless me similarly.

I am in the same boat. At least only one child has it. I am praying that it stays that way. She has already had two showers today and she is in her third pair of pajamas. She is napping now. I wish I could too. Spot Shot and soap have been my best friends today. I am truly impressed by your creativity in the midst of this. I feel like my brain is on strike. I hope this dastardly bug ends now for both of us.
