Lofty Goals

It’s 9:12 a.m. and I have already loaded the kids in the
car, driven half the way to school, watched Sickie_2my son vomit twice all over himself
and the car seat, turned the car around, unloaded the kids, cleaned up a
massive amount of vomit and put the car seat covers in the wash. It’s been an eventful
day. I’m hoping that this vomiting episode is
just a short-lived stomach bug and that my son’s throwing up episodes are over. I’d prefer to spend the rest of my day
completely vomit free. We’ll see what

On a much more positive note, my daughter has been pacifier
free for 24 hours with hardly a complaint. She asked for it at naptime and at bedtime yesterday but passively
accepted my refusal to give in to her request. This may be a surprisingly painless process. I have two goals for today:

  • Keep my daughter’s pacifier out of her mouth and her sight.

  • Keep myself, my son and my daughter vomit free.

Wish me luck.
