Channeling Patience

I don't know how many times I can have this conversation before my head explodes:

"Mom, I'm rewwy feeying better. Can I have something to eat?"

"No honey, you just threw up, you have to wait a while for your stomach to be all better."

"Mom, can I have some reguyar juice, not sick juice (Pedialyte)?"

"No, that will be too hard on your tummy today, maybe tomorrow."

"Okay Mom, can I have some more sick juice pyease?"

"Yes, I'll get you some."

"Sanks Mom."

I know, I know, it doesn't sound too bad. But imagine all of Harper's lines being said in a tired, whiny voice, and then repeat this exact same conversation every five to ten minutes for oh, (looks at watch) about six hours.

Stomach flu, begone from our home!

Have you tried the Pedialyte jello or popsicles? Then at least she'd FEEL like she's eating something different.

I hope I hope I hope she's feeling better for her birthday. What a bummer that would be. As if a puking kid on your own birthday isn't bad enough. (Aren't you so glad you celebrated a day early?)

I love it that you call it "sick juice" -- we call it that too!

Also : "sick pops" are the pedialyte popsicles.
