Puke, part duex

Not wanting to be outdone by her little sister, Violet got into the spewing business last night with an IPO of incredible value.

While Lilly was the surprise attack, earning a score of 9.4 out of 10, Violet defeated her with the "late night ralph meets bunny" move, throwing up a score of a perfect 10.

The night was like many others, I went to bed after Cindy, being engrossed in a book. Lilly started crying and Cindy asked that I take care of her -- she wanted sleep.

So from midnight to 2:30 a.m. I tried to coax the bald bawling bambino to sleep to no avail. That's when Violet got into the act.

First was the rash, Violet's legs itched. I put Lilly on the floor and got lotion. Oh, but I put the wrong lotion on, according to very vocal Violet. I had cold lotion, she wanted warm lotion. I got Violet asleep, and then once again worked on Lilly.

Lilly passed out after an infomercial on ShamWow! and I was able to put her in her crib, right as Violet started crying again.

Cindy beat me into her room, and as I came around the corner.... wow.

Let me say that Bunny got a steam cleaning in the washer, and the bedding was cleaned up. We then gave Violet a spit bath and it was bed time for me.

Hello 4:30 a.m.

Thank goodness there was no work today. That would have been killer.

Both girls don't have fevers, and they only puked once each, so we are kind of scratching our heads. Not sure what's up. Lilly has been fine and Violet had a lot of Halloween candy yesterday so I am thinking that's the culprit.

Well, time to go in and tuck Violet in.

Maybe we can get some sleep tonight. If not, at least the laundry will get done.

Hi-freakin-larious. I was laughing out loud and had to read both puke related entries to Adam. "So that's what we have to look forward to, eh?" Yep. 'Cept we only have one kiddo (for now, anyway!). Glad that neither of the girls seem to be ill beyond one puke each.
