Oh no!

Last night Brennen seemed fine and I was planning on taking him to Back to School night with me so Jared could tackle some projects. Well, wouldn't you know it, he ended up in the bathroom with a case of explosive diarrhea. You think it sounds bad? You're lucky you didn't have to see the mess. He was such a cutie, he tried to clean it up himself. (He's only 2.5 yrs old but already MUCH more responsible than all of his big bros!) I ended up leaving him home because the last thing I needed was him being sick at BTS night. He was fine though while I was gone. I got home and he was his normal, good natured self. This morning, I had to pluck him out of his bed and run the boys off to school. I hear Jon, "Brennen, why are you doing that? That's naughty!" Apparently what Jon thought was a 2.5yr old spitting in his carseat was in all actuality a baby throwing up! Poor kid! Jake caught Jon's mistake and helped poor Brennen out. Once the boys were all at their schools, Brennen was crying that he wanted to go home. Well, the gas light was on in my car but I decided to chance it anyway since he sounded really upset. I made it home fine but my lil guy is NOT happy today. He's very pale and sleepy and has been vomitting all morning. Not a lot since he's not eaten anything but still....poor kid. There's nothing grosser than the stench of puke....I'm busily doing laundry, hoping I don't catch whatever this is. I cannot imagine throwing up at nearly 36 weeks pregnant. NOT my idea of a holiday weekend well spent. The one silver lining, if there is one....Brennen is unbelievably well behaved and calm when he's sick. I've been spending most days peeling a toddler off the ceiling. He's currently sleeping soundly in HIS OWN bed! Please, if you wouldn't mind, say a prayer that he is back to normal soon and the rest of the family avoids the bug! I'm off to sanitize myself!

Poor Brennen!
