Whew

I probably should not be posting this since I could be tempting fate.

Saturday night Harry started crying and crying for no reason and would not be consoled. I sent him to his room to lie down thinking he was just tired. He ended up throwing up on his bed (thankfully my husband did the cleanup since he was closest). Shortly after clearing the contents of his stomach he was back up and very chipper. No more barfing but he has become attached to Barfy the barf bowl. It will be fun trying to convince him that he does not need it any more.

My husband decided that it was food poisoning from Harry's lovely habit of eating the food off the floor that the baby has dropped. I am not convinced since crackers are not what you think of when it comes to food borne illness. We need to get a dog so I won't have to clean the floors every five seconds.

I like the solution of getting a dog! Hope everyone is feeling well.

There was a strange one or two vomits and you are done bug going around here a few weeks ago, I wonder if Harry had the same thing...everyone thought it was food poisoning until we realized that 1/2 the school had had it...and there is no school supplied lunch or snack, so it couldn't be blamed on the cafeteria. Hope no one else succumbs in your house!

We love our dog for that very reason!

Ugh! I hear you about the food on the floor.

About a week ago, Grace's teacher said she had a really brief stomach bug that came upon her quite suddenly, lasted less than a day and moved on. I think there were a couple of others in her class, too.
Glad he's feeling better!

Harry is an orginal! Have never seen a sibling go for the baby food that hits the floor. Perhaps Harry hates to see such waste?

Yeah, but who will clean up after the dog?


So glad it was just a one barf deal though!
