when tummies ache


Caught her going through a box of molasses cookies...

Yesterday, we had a little girl going in and out of the kitchen the entire day.. We were, all three of us, coming off from the highs of a terrific Saturday. For Keira, a birthday party for her friend at a bowling alley plus an all day sleepover at her best friend's house. For us, well, obviously, an all day date! Keira was also on a high because I finally relented and told her she could chew chewing gum. I even let her choose her own chewing gum flavour when we went to the store and the look on her face, "I'm a big girl now, I can chew gum!" was priceless.

So, here is how she was yesterday: Full of life, chewing her little gum, eating who knows what all day long and dancing, jumping, laughing. Until she went to bed when suddenly, things were not so grand. She spent the entire night being violently sick. So much so, Mr C had to change his pj's three times (that is the extent of his jammy wardrobe).

Today, I spent some time trying to figure out what she ate and kiddo spent the entire day in bed sleeping it off. She did feel better once she woke up at 3pm but that bloom faded until she was sick again near suppertime. So.. her food intake of the day? Quarter bottle of Gatorade, tons of water, 2 crackers and 3 spoonfuls of soup. Let's hope another night of rest will make her feel better in the morning..

Have you noticed that they always get sick at night...
Hope she is feeling better now.
The stomach illnesses are the ones I worry the most because of dehydration.

You ladies are so sweet! It's Thursday and she's finally eating normal again. Which means, not much. lol. But at least she's feeling good. Thanks for your sweet wishes!
