We've Been Sick

The tummy bug had it's way with both the girls for the past week. And unfortunately not at the same time. Addison got it first and not as bad. Two days later Charlotte started with the same symptoms. Addison was fine by day three so we figured Charlotte would follow suit. However she decided to hang on to her tummy ache a few days longer. Saturday morning she woke up her usual self, smiling, laughing, running around and we thought great she is all better. We had to make a run to AAA to get some papers notarized so we make it a family trip. While the notary is filling out all the papers Charlotte throws up all over herself and the floor of AAA. I swear everyone in that room looked at Tony & I like we were parents of the year. Tony runs off to the bathroom with Charlotte leaving me with a the pile of throw up and one very curious toddler. Thankfully I had a cleaning agent in my diaper bag and I got that floor, I think, maybe even cleaner than before we got there. Haha. While I am cleaning the floor I see Addison out of the corner of my eye standing 20 feet away under what look like a purel dispenser. I think nothing of. She is not touching anything. She is just standing under it looking at it. When I finish cleaning up the mess Charlotte had made I walk over to Addison and realize that the dispenser is an automatic dispenser and she is now covered in antibacterial solution. I guess it could be worse. I'm sure the workers who know how that machine works were thinking why is that mom letting her kid stand under that thing. I seriously think we handled it well considering however I'm not sure how soon I will show my face in that AAA gain.

Sadly sounds like something that would happen in my life - of course I wouldn't be organized to have anything to clean it up with!

Hope the girls are feeling better soon :)

Sorry Jenny, but that made me laugh out loud...I'm sorry...those are the worst moments, and I'm always convinced those people will remember me, but they don't although it's different with the twins, everyone seems to remember us.

Oh the joys of parenthood seriously! Sometimes I think people just let us do the things we do for their sheer enjoyment! (And probably satisfaction knowing that they are not the only ones who have mishaps when they go out in public with their children too!)
