What's 'Up-Chuck'?

OK, so that's a terrible title...Whatever, I've been stuck in the house for a while!

So, you know that Chuck and I are friends now--we visited him again on Friday. He says that Charlotte doesn't have an ear infection and we should let her cold "just run its course."

Garrett on the other hand was feeling better yesterday, or so I thought. He went to a movie with Nana and Poppy and had M&Ms and popcorn. He came home and actually ate dinner (one of the few things he has eaten in a week)--spaghetti!

About 30 minutes after dinner, he starts with one of his coughing spells. So, being the good mother I am, I pick him up to comfort him. About the time he gets in my arms, he begins throwing up! Yes, all down the front of me. Now, I can dissect human cadavers and clean up old people poo, but vomit? I can't handle vomit! Not only does he throw up on me once, it happens about 3 more times. So we are both covered in puke full of M&Ms and, yes, spaghetti! Its in my hair even!

Thankfully, Nana and Poppy were still here to help care for Charlotte while Garrett got cleaned up in the tub and I removed spaghetti from my hair!

Oh, the joys of motherhood!

Oh, Amber. I just have no words for that, I am sorry!

That is the absolute worst! And a perfectly appropriate title.
