milestones

We hit two milestones today. Eleanor started talking about bedtime while we were in the car tonight. That should have been my first clue. When she starts says, "No bath! No bath! Brush teeth!" she is thinking about bedtime. She said she didn't want any dinner. She says a lot of things that are not true these days so I didn't think a lot about it. Then she barfed. No biggie. Every few months she barfs, usually at school. She falls asleep soon after and is fine when she wakes up. I tried to get a little dry toast into her but she was having none of it. I put her to bed and she conked out immediately, without any of her usual chattering.

She woke up when I checked on her about 90 minutes later. And promptly barfed again, all over her bed. As I was trying to comfort her, she barfed one more time. All.Over.Me. That's our milestone, the first barf on mom or dad. Since we have six kid years under our belts, we should probably consider ourselves lucky. The funniest moment? Eleanor telling me to clean up the "crumbs". No, dear, those are "chunks" but close enough.

Within a couple of minutes she was asking to go to the dinosaur playground so I'm thinking she's got it all out of her system.

And the second milestone? That's easier. This blog is 4 years old today.

Glad she's feeling better! Wow...first time to be barfed on! I've been hit several times. Congrats on 4 years! :)

Four years! Congratulations!

As for the barfing, I doubt you want to be congratulated for that. I just hope the clean-up wasn't too painful.

happy blog-aversary!

And I hope E is feeling better. Really, she just barfs a lot (I first typed 'barks', which would have been a funny typo, ehe?)? That doesn't sound good. :(

ciao!

I should clarify "barfs a lot". It's all relative. Oliver didn't barf until he was past 2. And he's had two days of barfiness in his life. "A lot" in this case means once every 4-6 months.
