weird and awesome and maybe funny in retrospect



Good thought for the weekend, no?

I think it is interesting that I have only blogged once since last Friday.  Interesting because it's unusual for a daily blogger like me.  I often feel weird if 2 days go by--but for some reason this week--that weirdness has vanished into a time warp where I just didn't have anything to say.

Me?

I have nothing to say?

'Tis true.

But today I was going through some old emails to my friend Mary when I found an awesome one.

Lest I forget what it is like to have a baby.  And appreciate a washer and dryer in my home.  A good story on that here.

1:00am --I hear Kai waking up but I don't go to him and he falls back asleep. I think, "maybe I'll get a good nights sleep tonight!"
2:30am --Kai wakes up screaming in his crib...I go to him in the dark and pick him up to see if he needs changed.  Suddenly, I feel something dripping on my toes and turn on the light.  He's dripping with diarrhea...and so is the crib.  The entire crib.
2:40am --I get him out of the tub and am grateful for the smell of cleanliness although I am out of pajamas and have to get him dressed in his daytime clothes.
2:43am --I forget the smell of cleanliness as I throw everything that is soiled into a huge black contractor bag and tie it up.  I think to myself that crib bumpers take entirely too long to get off.
2:54am --back to sleep with Kai in bed with me
3:30am --Brianna wakes up screaming and I am so tired that I let her in bed with us too.
4:45am --I wake up to Kai and myself being thrown up on by Brianna. 
4:48am --- Everyone gets in the shower.
4:55am --- I get everyone dressed again and attempt to calm upset and sick children.
5:05am ---Remove all my bedding and put it in a huge black contractor bag and place it right next to the other bag in the hallway. 
5:25 --back to sleep
6:00am --I wake up to the sound of Kai hitting the designated throw-up metal bowl with a candle and laughing.

I guess today is Laundry Day.

Love, Carrie

And speaking of weird.  I have to go back and correct the word WEIRD every time I write because I always put the I before E.  Awesome.

Beautifully documented a disgusting event. Poop. Where would we be without poop stories?

At least Kai was laughing at the end.

We've all been there. And rued the day! (or night...)
