A Record Setting Day

August 12, 2008

PhotobucketIn the midst of all the Olympic excitement, the Big One obviously felt it fitting to have a record setting day of her own. Despite my obvious jubilation, I’m sure you can guess these were not good records.

First Event: Puking ~ Accuracy

The Gold Medal goes to the Big One
The Loser Medal goes to the FixitMommy’s clothes

Next Event: Puking ~Frequency

The Big One wins with 4 times in 24 hours (really not too bad, considering some stomach bugs) However there is cause to celebrate, that is a record in our household

Next Event: Puking ~ Triggers

The Gold Medal in the event goes to Mott’s Apple Juice. Despite being the typical go-to beverage for the Big One, yesterday the juice was having an off day.

Next Event: Fevers

Again the Gold Medal goes to the Big One for the 2 a.m. temperature check she measured in at a whopping 103.8. Yes it is another record-setting measurement in our household.

Next Event: Sleeping

The Gold Medal goes to the Big One for two 2-hour naps yesterday. The reason this one is so noteworthy is the Big One hasn’t taken a nap in about 6 months. So we know she is not feeling well. As if the puking and fevers weren’t telling enough, the sleep one sealed the deal.

Next Event: Missing in Action

The Gold Medal here goes to the Husband. As timing would have it, he is, of course, out of town for all this fun. Actually I will rescind this gold and change it to a Silver Medal in this event. I think he sealed the Gold Medal back in May when out precious doggy Max died. Yes, the Husband was out of town that day. {Honey I am only teasing, I know you cannot control your schedule so don’t go getting all pissy, it’s all in good fun!}

Next Event: Sympathetic Sickies

This one is a close one. I think the Gold Medal goes to Grandma for actually being the first to get sick. We are not blaming Grandma here, just stating the facts. Grandma’s is more of a head cold with cough and congestion she didn’t puke so we can’t blame her entirely.

The Silver Medal goes to the Little One who is now running a low-grade fever (100.8), but who is also taking an extra nap a day while these events continue to play out.

Michael Phelps better watch out, the Big One is gunning for the record books with her recent events. I don’t know if he has the stamina it takes to keep up with a sick three-year-old.

So that’s the latest from our house to yours. We hope you are enjoying the Olympics as much as we are. Although we do hope you are not setting any new records in your house this week.
