Just Another Day in Paradise

So I woke up this morning with an insatiable desire to paint. I know, it is totally odd. I must have started nesting. All of the gals who painted with me last week are shaking their heads as they read this and they are afraid of another email which will beg them to bail me out. Yes it was less than 6 days ago when I spent two days painting Isaac’s bunk bed. I am sick in the head, I know.

Well Isaac slept until 9:30, which was a bonus, or so I thought. I got a shower, ate breakfast and relaxed for a while. When he woke up I went to get him and he fell asleep in my arms. I knew that could not be good. He was whiny all morning and just wasn’t himself. He had about half a bowl of oatmeal and juice. We watched a few shows and he was just exhausted. He got a burst of energy and so we played a board game (in a 2 year-old kinda way). Daddy came home for lunch and Isaac was excited. I don’t think Tim believed me when I said he wasn’t feeling good because he was ready to play when he saw Daddy. Fast forward 15 minutes. . . Isaac started whining and then BARFED TWICE ALLLLLL OVER TIM. It was more vomit than I have seen in a LONG TIME! Luckily it was only oatmeal and ALOT of juice. I am assuming Tim won’t be coming home for lunch for a while now. LOL!

So we put him in the bath and Tim went to take a shower (I guess just changing his clothes wasn’t enough for him). He seemed content in the bath. Then I went in the other room to grab the towel and he says “Mom I pooooooooped.” GREEEEEEAT! So I rushed in, got him out of the tub, disinfected the tub, changed him and continued on our day.

I called by OB to cancel my appointment for today. I know she thinks I am a total deadbeat. I have had to cancel so many appointments due to unforeseen events, my poor planning, and my half-functioning pregnant brain. Seriously, I haven’t seen her since I was 20 weeks!

I also figured out that Isaac locked the keys in the car, so I am stuck in the house all day even if I wanted to leave.

Now it is naptime (mommy has been waiting for this moment all day). I am changing his big boy underwear to put a diaper on him (we haven’t perfected that skill yet) and he pees all over me, himself, the carpet and the new diaper. So I change that diaper, clean him up, clean the carpet and OOOPS! I knew I forgot something…I guess I should wash my hands now huh?


Just kidding people! Geesh…oh and I just found out hubby works late tonight. AWESOME!

    sounds like a fabulous day! hope you get some rest and that your boy gets better quick!

  • MomE

    My day was stressful but man, you have me beat! It tickles me that Tim showered…Darren is so like that too! Ha! We Mommas just keep going and can’t remember if we’ve washed our hands! Ha ha!!

  • Mom (aka Beau-Nonni)

    My poor little boogie(s)….. :<

    Oh Beckie, I soooo feel your pain! I seriously have an irrational fear of vomit. If my kids are sick like that, I instantly have an anxious stomach ache. I wish I could just make a rule that I don’t do vomit. I will take ANY other bodily fluid over vomit. I mean it. And it’s even worse when you have to deal with it being pregnant AND have a late working hubby (was that pre-arranged or did he call you after lunch and tell you he had to work late?!). :-)

    I’m just so glad that I am not the only one who sees these kinds of days. Though I must say it’s much funnier when you’re just reading about it and not experiencing it. : ) Gotta love bein’ a mommy!

    Ok, Isaac is like clockwork when it comes to pooping in the tub. I’m sooo gonna make fun of him when he’s 16 for doing that. :D
    P.S Can we please see more pregnant lady shots? I haven’t seen your belly in a while and I don’t wanna have to wait until Christmas. I hope Isaac feels better. Give him some hugs for me.
    Love, Steph

  • Ryan and Amy

    I cannot…I repeat…CANNOT believe that all happened today! GEEZE!!! Is he feeling any better? You know it was a busy day when pee, poop, and barf are all in places where they shouldn’t be. :)

  • Carrie

    Oh my! That is a rough day!!!

    Thankfully, he puked on your husband! :) I’m sure your hubby doesn’t feel the same way.

    Poor little dude. I hope he’s feeling better.

  • Eryn

    nothing worse than pukey and poopy kiddos. Hope tomorrow is better!

  • Dee

    You are just now nesting????????? You’ve been nesting for a while haven’t you?

    Hope today is better my friend. The wonderful thing about kids is they tend to recover fast.
