oh no

there are 7 words that no mother ever wants to hear while in the car (did i mention in the car with all the kids?)

seven words...
but it happenedand it wasn't good.
"i feel like i'm going to be sick"
which is quickly followed (and i mean supersonic quick)
by "it"...the "sick".

so after i was done gagging myself and doing crowd control with the other 3, it was clean up and go at the closest gas station.

i'm happy to report that the stomach flu lasted but a few hours with brooke; i was not so lucky.  but i am back.  good thing, too....we have our open house on sunday for jk's adoption and to welcome sofie.  

we're off to all eat toast knowing that someone else well def be getting sick soon...booo!
(it may be a bad time to say this but i have waited for my 03 escalade for a while...i know it's old to you, but it's so awesome for me...and now, it's been initiated...and it's only been 5 months. sad.  poor girl.)

Oh, I'm so sorry. Those are words I never want to hear anywhere, anytime. The car is one of the worst. So is the middle of the night when the kid is leaning over you and you're not quite coherent.

Karol said...

Oh, I'm so sorry. UGH. Atleast you're somewhat forwarned. My 2 yearold hasn't grasped that concept yet. Fun times!

*Oh, how I hope nobody else gets it!!

Kimberlie Rose said...

Oh, I hope everyone feels better real soon...we had a bit of the same bug last week. Blah.

Take care and have great weekend!

Jaysi said...

Rotten! That bug sure does make it's way through the family. I hope you guys feel better soon! Until then, enjoy the toast!

Lori said...

Tiaras and Tantrums said...

awww - sorry about the suv - I'd be crying over that one too!!

Kel said...

I'm so sorry to hear your sick and that the sickness has invaded your house! That is not fun at all - hopefully you will be spared any major bouts of the flu.

Take care and Yay for your new car!!

Oh YUCK! I don't do puke very well. Sorry about your new car (hey, five months is still NEW to me too!). I hope all is well with your crew very soon. The flu is just plain not fun. Especially when mommy has it. One of these days when I don't have three kids pulling on my pant legs saying, "MOMMMEEE, I need UUUU", I'll have to go back and read all about your adoption, foster care, big family journey! :) Blessings and have a fantastic sick free weekend!

Ugh...this is the part of kids I wish wasn't part of having kids! " )

OH I feel your pain my brand new Town & Country was initiated after owning it for 3 weeks we were on our back from SC we had to pick up our second car when my youngest got sick for no appearant reason it was SOOOOOOOOOO gross and we had no gas station close by my hubby was in the other car oh it was bad I had to drive another 30 miles before we got to a rest stop it was a LONG 30 miles I might add.

hippos toes said...

Oh no, I dread hearing those words from my little guy. I especially dread knowing that someone else is to follow!!

Lindsay said...

Oh my....I must say I have yet to experience puke in a car. And I must say that I'll be very very patient and NOT sad if it never happens. Ugh. I think I might just have to sell the car! :-)

BTW, I would love to have an 03 in my fleet...we have a 91 (yes, a NINETY-ONE) and 01. I'm thankful for my 01 with leather. Ahhhh....easy clean-up for the future! (or not)

Imperfect said...

Home brew is good. I love a good cup of coffee. But my tea was delightful this morning. Glad to hear you are feeling better!

Burg said...

Oh ewww. Hope everyone is better!

Wep said...

ugh! that is the worst!

The Farmer Files said...

Ohhh I am so sorry. We keep beach towels in our car in case we just decide to hit the beach. They have been used on clean up duty! I drink a lof of bottled water, so between hosing off with bottled water and then covering a kid with a beach towel, we can make it home. I giggled about christening the escalade. ;)

Anna Lefler said...

I live in mortal fear of the stomach flu. Good luck!

But enough about that...I'm completely fixated on the toast. Is that...VAN HALEN toast? Please tell me it's Van Halen toast. And please tell me where I can get some because that's by far the coolest thing I've seen all day.

Awesome.

Thanks for stopping by the 'stache contest - loved your comment!

Have a great weekend...

:^) Anna

ooooh nightmare words. Heard them last week (shudder)... Hey we should get together sometime, I have 4 BOYS. He he. If you'd like to see them stop by my blog and check out my About Me video. Truly we are blessed. Thanks for posting!

Becky said...

Van Halen toast, Palin lipstick button, I think I'm in blog love! Hope the smell gets out of your car, ick, ick, ick. That's one of the worst, but what sends it over the top when one of your monkeys barf's in a friends car, mortifing, and not enough money in the world to say I'm sorry!

Straight to Your Hart said...

Oh how sad all around!! My brother-in-law (adult) did not know he was going to yuck...their truck was brand new 3 months off the lot...when he lost his cookies all over the dash...??!! WHAT the H...couldn't he pull over and or open the window....Nasty!! Need-less to say...they traded it in a few weeks later...the smell ugh!!!

Christine said...

Christine said...

nikkicrumpet said...

OH NO NOT in the Escalade!! I'm so glad I'm past that age with kids...of course the dogs have been known to arf a few times too! Thanks for stopping by my blog on my SITS day. I really appreciate the company!

Well, at least the car is christened and you can move on from it...right? :)

missklose said...

SOOO sorry that happened. No kids here, but lots of students. Those words aren't fun to hear in a closed classroom either.
SO GROSS.
But congrats on the car!

AVT Coach said...

Yes, that is one of the worst. Lucky everyone else didn't follow suit just watching! And the clean up!!! One time on a trip out of the mountains our youngest did that and my, it was only the start of our 9 hour drive. Fortunately it was all on a sleeping bag and it was left in a dumpster on the side of the road! She was just car sick and once we got out of the mountains she was fine. It did make a memory..as for the car...Febreeze?

Susan said...

Ugh!!! You know I can sympathize, though I didn't have to clean "the sick" up in the car.
Hope the rest of the weekend goes well with the open house.
