We have had the stomach bug a lot this winter...a whole lot! Back when the kids were younger, them throwing up was probably on my list of my top ten fears...maybe even my top five. Now, not so much. I hate when they are sick, but all of them are so good about making it either to the bucket or making it to the toilet.
On Sunday evening, my Little Man started complaining of a tummy ache. Any time that happens, my husband and I have set up a basic procedure : move the child with the complaint to the couch, get out the old towel, and place the bucket with a trash bag in it in the proper place (on top of the old blanket) at a close distance to the child. We have it down to a science. Then we wait...and usually it doesn't take long.
The puking started and my Little Man was a champ. He slept most of the day on Monday and was almost back to normal on Tuesday. We now cross our fingers and hope that my efforts yesterday of wiping the place down with lysol did some good.
It's the little things...like no puke on the carpet.
