Matilda had her first bout with a stomach flu last night. She did really well considering. And her parents are slowly learning how to catch puke. The real challenge came when she started to associate the puke-bucket with the whole terrible experience and would push it away, shaking her head, and saying bye bye. The head shaking really adds a whole other level of difficulty, but with only one resulting load of laundry I would say we are up to the challenge.
This morning M is feeling better and after some initial uncertainty has decided she likes Pedialyte popsicles. We are taking it easy, sticking to the BRAT diet and using it as an excuse to finally allow her unlimited hours in front of the TV.
