I have food poisoning. Or as Nancy says, “there’s a stomach bug going around.” But I think I got it from eating unwashed prewashed carrots out of a bag.
Either way, when you are alone with an energetic 22 month old and vomiting bile every 5 minutes, it’s HARD!!!
Changing diapers, while horribly nauceous, is not something I recommend. Oh my God.
There was a lot of lying in bed with mama, watching Barney and playing on the ipad. And thankfully, he had a 3 hour nap (probably because he was extra tired from me waking him all night with my wretching.)
And then, my saviors, my sister and brother in law came over to play, so I could rest and so Spenser could have a somewhat interactive day.
It’s true that because I’m solo, this day was a challenge. But let’s not forget that many many moms and dads, with partners spend all alone with their children. Being Mom Solo was not at all to blame.
This kind of thing happens. It is miserable to be sick like this and even more horrible to not be able to play and take S to his gym class or to Trader Joes.
I still say being Mom Solo is just as doable as a two parent family.
Either way, it’s very nice to have some help.
Thank you, to my sister and brother in law!
Solo or not, we all need help sometimes.
