Delayed Trip...

Tuesday evening Hannah came down with the stomach flu. She was done puking by Wednesday Night but was still weak on Thursday. We took her and Fayeth to the peds and OF COURSE Fayeth has another ear infection. So Thursday afternoon we made a last minute mad dash to Walmart to pick up a few things. We get out of the car and Gabe says, "Mommy my tummy hurts". I told him he would be ok and that this was going to be a quick trip. I then informed him, "Child DO NOT PUKE ON THE STROLLER!!! If you feel the ned to throw up puke on the floor in walmart. NOT MY STROLLER!!!" (Come on we are leaving at 3am. I do not have time to wash the stroller and have it dry. LOL Well, he looks at me and says, "Mommy my tummy really hurts...I think I am going to * INSERT PUKE SOUND * Yep. He puked all over the walmart parking lot. So I take fayeth out of the stroller tell him to get into the stroller and tell him not to touch anything that we needed to get these last few items. So I enter Walmart. Grab what I need in less than 5 minutes. Fayeth is doing this cough cough thing and I was thinking...Shit, she is going to start to.

Off to check out we go. it is taking FOREVER in the check out. This 90 year old OLD BITTY came up to me and said, "Are you in line to check out?" I informed her that I was. She says, "Well can't you move up closer to the person infront of you?" I tell her, "No, my son just vomited and I do not want him to give it to anyone else if he has the tummy flu." Now I am standing with Fayeth on my hip facing out and she steps right up next to fayeth and starts bitching at me and Fayeth let it rip. Covered the woman from chest to knees in my breast milk and particles of bread. The lady informs me that I am paying for her dry cleaning and I inform her that contrary to what she believes I AM NOT paying for her dry cleaning. Stay out of my person space and this would not have happened.

I load all 4 kids into the car in World record speed and give the 3 older ones a plastic bag with specific directions to puke IN the bag NOT ON the car seats. Because come hell or high water we are leaving for FL at 3am Friday. Gabe pukes before we ever leave the parking lot. 3 miles down the road Hannah says, "Mommy fayeth is puking!" I pull the car over and prop her up more in her carseat. Fayeth had already christened Hannah's car seat so I knew that I was washing 2 of the 4 car seats. LB looks at me and grabs her plastic bag while saying, "Mommy, it is my turn now!!" * insert puking child sound * Of course she also misses her bag so I knew I was washing 3 out of 4 car seats.

By now I am laughing because there is nothing else that you can do. On this less than 30 minute car ride home Gabe also puked on his carseat and LB and Hannah had diarrhea in their car seat. I got the kids home and stripped and made them stand in the bathroom while I unload and hose down the carseats and throw the carseats into the washer. Clothes went into the wash tub to soak and by then my tummy was not feeling well.

Of course mommy got sick at 9pm and had a rough night getting up with kids and herself. LOl Daddy slept in the living room. Trying to escape the nasty bug that we had up stairs...

Now WE are healthy and Daddy is on the couch with Diarrhea nad tummy pain....

We are planning on leaving at 3am Saturday morning....

You know what I love about you, Michelle? All that, and you laughed. Amazing! And Miss Fayeth did a brilliant job of teaching that old bat a thing or two about invading someone's personal space. Good for her!
