Funny thing that sugar

I've been trying to update the blog but so far nothing. The pictures won't load. So I'll tell you this parenting story.

Yesterday, I wasn't feeling well. I stayed in bed literally all day. I napped all day. I don't think I was awake for more than an hour at any point during the day. Madeline was invited to a birthday party a few weeks ago that got rained out and yesterday was the rainout date. Conrad took her and dropped her off.

When she got home she said she wasn't feeling well because she hadn't had anything healthy to eat at the party. All she ate was sweets. A little later she started throwing up. She threw up all night long. In between episodes, she tells me she's never going to eat so much sugar again.

Now who of us (after a bout of overindulging in....well, you fill in the blank) has not said "never again". As a mother - knowing Halloween is coming up - I couldn't tell her she probably had a virus. Even though it's probably true because Sadie also joined in the nausea fest later.

AND, I would like to thank God and my husband for having me sleep all day so I would be capable of functioning during those wee hours when I was having to get up with one or the other of the girls. Funny how things work out.
