I love being a mom. I really, really do. I could wish the "ick" factor were a little lower, though. Poor kidlet came down with stomach bug in the middle of the night on Monday night (and can someone please tell me why this stuff never happens at 2 PM in the afternoon or some other time when I'm actually AWAKE and CAN FUNCTION??).
Since his bathroom is still under construction from the great flood of March, 2009, he has to use mine. So, I'll let you guess what happened to my bedroom carpet as he ran, at midnight, from his bedroom down the hallway, through my bedroom and into my bathroom to get sick.
And again at 2 AM (because he forgot that by then I'd put a wastbasket next to his bed).
And again at 4 AM (when he tried for the basket and missed and got his entire bed instead).
So, I cleaned him up 3 times, cleaned my carpet up twice, cleaned his bed up once, cleaned my bathroom up twice, took out 3 trashbags full of ICK and took two showers of my own...all between midnight and 5 AM.
Hmm...it suddenly occurs to me that blog entries like this are maybe the reason I don't have more readers/commenters? Perhaps I've entered crossed the "oversharing" line?
Then again, if I have to be up in the middle of the night scrubbing my carpet, don't I have the right to at least whine about it one time? I think so.
