If your almost five year old is battling stomach flu...
And its been two hours since she last hurled...
And she says she's hungry...
And you're trying to get fluids into her...
DON'T...I REPEAT...DO NOT give her blue jell0.
You're welcome.

Oh Yuck. Poor Maddie. And poor you!!!!

Wow, thanks for the heads up on that one! Hope she gets better soon. (Maybe she's a Cardinals fan at heart, and the loss yesterday made her ill? jk)

ROFL :) :)

(Although I know that's not very nice of me.)

That is some seriously good advice.

I have some too...

If you, the parent, feel nauseous for 12 hours, maybe it's time to get over your extreme distaste for puking and just do it. Cuz guess what? It feels much better when you just hurl and get it over with.

Apparently the stomach bug is on the west coast AND in Grab-Your_Lasso. Bummer.

Hmmm...I don't think I've ever had to deal with anything that, um, colorful.

My biggest piece of puke advice, though, is never give a sick kid a hot dog. Nothing smells worse than hot dog puke.

Hope Maddie is better and that no one has gotten it.

I didn't read this post until just now. I confess, I had a true LOL moment - and a nice, long one, too! Thank you for the sage advice - or shall I say blue that stains everything. Red does too just in case anyone was wondering. :-)

Don't give purple grape juice either. True story.
