The Ramblings of a Redneck Diva

Mood:  don't ask
Well, it'll be quick tonight. I know I always say that but tonight it really will be. I've got a sick baby. Okay, well she's 18 or so days away from being 8, but she's still my baby. She came home from school early today and it's just gone downhill from there. I figure I have about 8 minutes left now until she barfs again, so I thought I'd post real quick before it's back to puke duty, as I so lovingly call it. How come husband never does puke duty? Not once in our parenting careers has he ever pulled a 2-night stint of sleeping on the couch, holding little heads while they heave into a trashcan. He doesn't know what he's missing. Actually, yes he probably does. He may be smarter than I give him credit for...

There are 2 kindergartens at the kids' school. Yesterday the class that Sam's not in, ended up sending 7 kids home before day's end. That particular class is afflicted with the projectile vomiting, high fever virus, whereas Sam's class has mostly been coming down with the high fever, headache, severe abdominal pain minus the vomiting variety. Either way you get some serious sick kidlets. I talked to Sam's teacher tonight and she told me that if I wanted to keep him home tomorrow to keep him out of the germs for 4 whole days she didn't see a thing wrong with it, in fact she sounded like she was borderline encouraging it. They're out of school anyway on Friday, so I figure if he stays away from the school till Monday we might let a few germs die in the process. Of course, his sister is here germing up our HOUSE, so we'll see what happens.

You know what happens to parents who pull continuous rounds of puke duty, right? Ooohhh I'm gonna be SO pissed off if I don't get to drive in the derby this weekend... You will all get to witness one furiously insane 31 year old woman throwing a full-fledged temper tantrum. You'll also, though, get to see pictures of my husband driving my purple car in the derby instead! That's almost worth yakking uncontrollably for 24 hours. Okay, no it's not. I SO take that back.

Hope things are a little better today! You know you will be sick next, but you won't really be sick because moms don't get sick, even thought you will get what they have 10 times worse than they have it and be wishing for death to come your still not sick. Oh man I hope you don't get what they have!
Take care sweetie and get one of those surgical masks!

Man! Do they serve lunch there? Are you sure this wasn't some collosal case of food poisoning? Of course where ever you have large numbers of children you have germies.

My son is currently on pills and two inhalers, poor boy.

Living in the same state I know exactly what you are talking about. We are also battling strep and other throat viruses in this area. I'm so hoping we can fight it off and/or avoid it all together. It is a known fact RD that mothers are not allowed to be sick (no matter how sick you really are). Here's hoping the best for you and your family.
