Disaster of a New Years 😭😅😂
Rang in the new year with disasters 😭😂 On our way to friends’ party 1.5 hrs away last night, my toddler, Elwyn, vomited her weight alllll over herself and the car seat from being car sick. We had to stop at a gas station and clean her up in the freezing cold rain. The extra clothes I always have packed for her, the pants were wet for some reason?? Luckily we had blankets to wrap her legs in for the rest of the trip there, and luckily our friends were kind enough to let us do a load of laundry, but that meant completely uninstalling the car seat to take all the covers off it and that was a whole science project. I’m too pregnant for all this 😅 I have a bulging disc in my lower spine that gets worse while pregnant and so all this was killlllling my back.
The ride home was luckily uneventful and Elwyn went straight to bed without a hitch. Then comes this morning...
So I give her a bath when she got up, because of vomiting all over herself last night, and I wiped her down well but still - bath is 10000% necessary. So she’s playing in the tub and right as I’m stuck on the toilet poopin - she poops in the tub! I have to take her out soaking wet and cold, get myself all situated so I can stand up off the toilet and fix this whole situation. Then she’s trying to reach in the tub with her poop in it, SHE PEES ON THE FLOOR, I stick her on the toilet, and in the meantime she manages to put her hands in the toilet water.. then knocks my iPad off the counter.. at this point I’m yelling for my husband
cuz I need help. It was one thing after another.
I get plastic bags to grab the poop out of the tub but it’s just breaking apart all in the water. Then I gotta wipe the whole tub out. Meanwhile Elwyn is shivering on the toilet and wanting to get down and I’m telling her not to move (she’s never sat on the toilet before and she’s kinda scared too.) I fill the tub back up and stick her back in to wash her all up and I’m just rushing. My back already is bad and was already destroyed from the shenanigans of last night.
UUUGGGhhhehaysjabwheuduuuuuggghhhhh 😅😅 yeah I’m spent.
But! We had fun playing games with friends last night and tonight we are going to dinner with other friends.
As much as this all was stressful, it means I have running water, a car, a roof over my head, food to feed my baby plus extra to make up for all that was lost in the vomiting, a beautiful baby, I have a wonderful husband who is my partner through this all, I have a baby boy growing in me and Im reminded every me it was hard to move and twist and bend through all this, and that I have friends to hang out with and who love me and my family.
Looking forward to the rest of the year 😍 pic is us early Christmas morning.
