Poop, Puke and Barney

I've been a bit MIA this week. What have I been up to you ask? Well.......... Watching Barney, cleaning up poop, watching Barney, cleaning up puke, watching Barney, cleaning up more poop, doing laundry and giving poopy baths. You get the picture..... Parker has a tummy bug.... a nasty nasty tummy bug that is working its way out of his body in every which way imaginable. Poor buddy..... and poor mommy. UGH. I love my little man but it is JUST G-R-O-S-S!

In the midst of all the poop, Barney and baths... I did manage to snap this cute pic of Parker and his goggles. He has no interest in swimming in them but he apparently likes his world to be turquoise. Excuse the sloppy clean up job on his shirt and his lack of bottoms.... At this point... everything he owns is either covered in poop, puke or in the washing machine.
See our couch behind Parker in this picture?
It's now at the dry cleaners..... yep... poop.
The plus side of being sick is mommy is a sucker to give him just about anything he'd like. (or would consider eating and keep down). So I caved and gave him this tasty fudge stripe while he enjoyed Barney episode #6719 (at least it felt like it was).
See the wall behind the musical table?
This was where the fudge stripe made its second appearance. Mommy fail. Now he eats rice.

Well this sleepy, smelly mommy is off to bed with visions of poop and puke dancing in her head!

Get well soon, Parker! .........P-L-E-A-S-E!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


  1. Question ... how on earth does one send a couch to the dry cleaners???

    Try the BRAT diet. Have you heard of it???

    After having a quiet tummy for some time, introduce banana. If that stays down (or in), give some plain, cooked rice. When that stays down (we're talking about an hour or so), give some plain applesauce. When the Mr. Parker keeps that down, give him a piece of plain toast.

    And that, my friend, is the BRAT diet. My pediatrician told me about this and everytime I've tried it, it works.

  2. ^^ second that!! BRAT never fails!!

  3. He's been on the BRAT diet since Monday.I cheated with the fudge stripe. Look at that face! Anyways... it is sorta working... but not really. His tummy is now bloated and has a rash. Back to the DR!
