Do I really have to do that?

I am not gonna lie there are aspects of being a mom that I do not love. Like Tuesday we had had a busy day and were just pulling into dance class. I turn to get the baby out and he looks at me and throw-up just flows like a fountain . Spraying all over my car. I just looked at him for a minute and thought EWE!! Because guess who is going to have to clean that disgusting mess up ? The girls are squealing because yuck it smells terrible. So I get Sam up to class and the rest of us drive home with all the windows down. Its not over though because I have to get him out of the car and into the tub. Now if you have never done this you might not realize that the only way to do this is to stick your hands in the mess to unhook the carseat straps. ....Exactly EWE . I was hoping it was something that didn't settle in His little tummy. And I thought I was in the clear but last night Sam got the bug. And Jake joined her again this morning. He calls me and says "Mooom I need a baby wipe!" I didn't know whether to laugh or cry. I actually laughed really hard because he was just sitting there with his little hands out and a matter-of-fact look on his face.
So my game plan for today is wash the 2 sheets, 8 blankets, 5 towels and 3 pillows that are now yuck ! Oh and wait to see who is going to join the club. One of the down sides to having a big family. So No I really don't want to be the mommy today. And I am actually afraid to feed my children!

Ohhhh... that is so un-fun!!! You didn't even talk about that carseat... are you just going to get a new one?!? I'm sorry for what you had to do :( Don't you wish, on days like this, that our job is really all "Bon-Bons and Soap Operas"??? I hope that the rest of your family escapes this visitor... especially you, my friend! It's one thing to clean up a sick child (or 2 or 3), but it takes on a completely new meaning when you have to do it while you are sick! Love you!
