Why I Am Not Happy Tonight

My little Marilla just threw up drastically twice in a row. While having a little sick kid is never fun, there are reasons this is even more awful than normal.
  1. We weaned Marilla from her pacifier Friday night. It hasn't been a popular move. Now, when she's in need of comfort, it's so tempting to give it back to her. The thought of going through the last three nights some other time, though, is terrifying.
  2. She just threw up on the back-up blanket. Now that the pacifier is gone, this blanket is even more crucial. And the two blankets won't be out of the dryer for 2 hours.
  3. Evan and I have hotel reservations for Thursday night. It will be our tenth anniversary Friday, and, for the first time in 7-8 years, we are going away for a long weekend. Without our children. What are the odds we won't get sick at this critical juncture.
  4. It's just awful. I can't think of another concrete reason, but three reasons doesn't do this justice.
Anyway, she is in the mood to cuddle at least. And now Daddy has the brains to have a little bowl handy should she erupt again. We're low on sleepers at this point, so hoping she manages to keep it all inside, or at least in the bowl if she needs to vomit again.

I hope no one was looking for a happy blog post here! ;-)

OHHHH I am SOO sorry! I sure hope it gets better... and you'll enjoy your time away, even if you are sick... Now remind me of that when we attempt to get away for a week the end of Feb! =-)
