...as well as a shout out to my very cool friends over at DAD-BLOGS.
Every Friday, as many of you know, we share blogs, ideas and cool camaraderie.
Last Friday, I put out a call to our blogger buddies to submit questions for the little Superstar for an interview to be presented this Friday. (A cool idea, I thought, at the time).
Making a long story very short...Daddy dropped the ball. I do, however, have what I would consider a good reason...FOOD POISONING! (Gawd, I thought I was gonna be on the news, for Swine Flu!)
Being a stay at home parent, we get to experience so many things in the wonderful little worlds of our children. BUT, and it is a BIG but...(pun intended), sometimes...well, ya just get sick. And when you do, and those of you who are stay at home parents know, you just don't function well....
You are supposed to though...no excuses...no one can do it better...you are THE one who holds everything together...(or rather, you like to think so) but damn, you just wanna crawl under a rock and die....
Imagine, your tummy feels a bit odd...u eat lunch, but it just doesn't seem to settle...the little one goes down for a nap...you decide to lay down too...(we have all heard, when the little one naps, you do too).
We have a two story home, therefore, we have used a monitor in our little one's bedroom since birth...and I cant tell you how amazing it has been to have that monitor...watching, (staring) at the little one sleeping, moving about...and just being a cool alarm clock...for when she wakes.
BUT, (there is that big ole but again)...this particular day, I wanted to pitch it. throw it out the window...(off the second floor)...smash it...burn it....donate it to the local convenience store for surveillance....
She wakes! I spew! Simple as that....? NOPE! It was horrendous....I barely made it to the kitchen sink...(I know what you are thinking...KITCHEN SINK? Hey, it has a disposal...and frankly, lucky I made it anywhere at all...)! Without going into particulars, let's just say my lunch included bits of bell peppers...read, green, yellow...and at that point, no digestion had taken place...IT HURT!
At this point, the little one wants out of bed...NOW. I can't...it hurts, I am weak...it is two stories up...and it would have felt like a hike up a mountain at that point....
So, Daddy, who does it all, who prides himself on taking care of everyone else, regardless...had to break down, call the other half...and in a whimper..."Please can you come home and get the little one out of bed...I am Spewing."
Better now, after a few days, but, the Interview is not ready....it will be...trust me...and it will be fun...but for now...I need to wallow in my self pity for a bit....(at least I ain't wallowing in Spew)
Go ahead, take advantage of my humility...read last weeks post...send your comments and questions...I will add and have a fun fun fun video next week.
Make sure and click on the blogs of those who have submitted, as well as heading over to my friends at Dad-Blogs.com...
P.S. after the spew had died down, I had to blow my nose...YUP, bell peppers...in the nose...NOT PRETTY!
