1. Today caden-3yr had an opportunity to coin a new word. Poop-anado. That’s a combination of the words Poop and Tornado. I was blessed not to see the specimen that inspired this word.
2. Night before last, I found out it is entirely possible to sleep through a baby throwing up all over the bed. I sleepily rationalized that those ‘cold spots’ couldn’t possibly be vomit, because it would stink.
3. My stupid sense of smell betrayed me and did not bother to wake up and smell the puke.
4. Despite #3, I don’t drink heavily. (Or at all, actually) I’m just a sleep deprived mom.
5. Mike would have woken up, and probably even cleaned it up, but he was experiencing great favor from the Lord God Above, and was out of town that night. (A logistical oversight issue I later found necessary to discuss with the Lord God Above.)
6. Seth-2yr also got VERY sick in the car, taking Caden-3yr to preschool the next day. Caden-3yr was seated directly behind Seth-2yr and didn’t see the action.
7. Caden-3yr’s sense of smell was wide awake.
8. Caden-3yr asked what happened. I told him. He asked, “What kind of throw up is it?” I thought about it. Looked back at Seth-2yr, and said, “Brown.” Caden-3yr thought this over and then said, “Yeah. I thought so. Brown throw up smells REALLY bad.”
9. Seth-2yr handled the situation better than anyone else I know would have. He bugged his little eyes out, accepted the blanket I offered, and waited the fifteen additional minutes it took for me to get us home and get him out of his car seat. THen he said, ‘thank you.’
10. Tonight Caden-3yr sweetly asked me to clip his ‘Toe Fingernails.’ Then he changed it to ‘Feeternails.’
11. Yesterday Mike told me that someone had nominated me for Sexiest Mommy Blogger (something like that) on some site. And that it wasn’t him. I suspect y’all do that just to crack me up, because there’s no way you find all this poo talk sexy.
12. Don’t try and find it and vote -you’ll get all kinds of spam in your email. Like Mike did, when he voted.
13. Serves him right for missing all the brown throw up.
14. And brown really IS the worst kind.
