If you think that there is even the slightest chance that your child will throw up don't give them dried black currants as part of their breakfast. Your husband might think that said child is throwing up blood. Thankfully I was there to point out that it was entirely the wrong color. It was also a very good thing that we own a carpet cleaner so that it did not stain the carpet. My husband even spot cleaned some high traffic areas as a nice bonus. Even better news is that the puking incident seems to be isolated and mucus related. It is not the first time that Evan has puked because of snot.
Despite all the fun and hilarity of having sick children that sneeze snot slugs constantly and are ultra clingy (Evan spent a good hour just laying on me after the throw up incident in the afternoon, Harry was off and on my lap all morning and I was battling a nasty headache) I managed to turn the heel of the sock yesterday and I am now doing the decreases for the instep. I did not do the proscribed 56 rows at the top. I felt that it would make the sock too tall for my taste, I am a short sock kind of gal. I love how fast this sock is knitting up, stockinette may be boring but it sure is fast (when Harry is not amusing himself by putting his hand up through the sock so he can play peek-a-boo with his hand). You know, now that I think about it, it is rather remarkable that I have been finding time to knit. I guess that is a testament to how hard core I have become when it comes to knitting.
