Lord help us...

... because it's Barf City at our house right now. Chad went home from work sick yesterday, Liam started puking after dinner, and I'm keeping a close eye on Mallory because while she's not acting lethargic or anything right now, she hasn't eaten anything yet today, either.

I usually really enjoy being a mom, but it's at times like these that I really feel like sending them back. I know it's not their fault that they're sick but... vomit skeeves me out. Big time.

Good luck, sweetie. We had an awful stomach bug hit dh, me and Em when she was 18 months old. The best advice I can give you is to try your level best to avoid dehydration because you can actually reach the point where the illness has mostly passed but dehydration keeps you vomiting and having issues.

If any of you have troubles keeping down fluids, a Tsp to TBSP at a time every few minutes (of pedialyte, since it will help keep your electrolytes balanced) can help stave off dehydration without really giving you enough to throw back up.

I hope this passes quickly, with minimal ickiness.
