would a good mother prioritize taking this photo - instead of getting her poor kid out of the seat ASAP?
Apologies for the shit quality picture - it was taken with my phone (which is new as supposedly has a great quality camera, but I have yet to figure out how to take 'great quality' pictures with it). anyway....
Poor little Danny was awake most of friday night, crying and obiously not feeling well. We weren't sure what was wrong, we had spent the night on our boat, and we weren't sure if it was the unfamiliar environment, or the fact that I forgot his blankie and dog at home, or if he was sick or what. Until on our way home mid-day Saturday, we heard that tell-tale wet burp sound that always precedes his barfing. And we both look back in the mirror just in time to see him spew what seems like a liter or more of barf - it came in about 4 or 5 geysers. His carseat was literally full of barf. And it was all over the seat of the car (yes, the new car) which fortunately was covered by one of those protective mats, but some of it still got out and onto the seat and the door sill. I'm not sure I've ever seen so much barf.
And of course, bad mother that I am, I had to take a picture. It's easiest in this situation to just unlatch the carseat and set it in the driveway, and then slowly try to peel him out of the barfy clothes and the seat. gross.
Fortunately we were just about a quarter mile from home when it happened. What do you do if this happens when you're on a long road trip? We were pondering this the rest of the weekend. what if we had been halfway across the mountains to grandma's house? I guess you'd have to just clean it up as best you can and put the poor baby back in a barf soaked seat. yuck.
He was obviously feeling off the rest of the weekend, and had a bit of a fever, but only barfed the once. He seems to be feeling much better today.
In other news... Callie pooped in the potty 5 times this weekend. I really had no intention of potty training this early, but she's just sort of doing it. She gets a huge kick out of sitting on her little potty while I go to the bathroom. So all weekend long I pretty much just took her in the bathroom with me when I had to go. And about 75% of the time she went too. So I guess maybe she's potty training herself. wow.
