Wayne, I think I’m gonna hurl!

Well, we officially had our first Dante puking experience on Saturday. He’s been a little runny-nosed and clingy recently, but nothing that screamed “sick” to me. I just figured he was either teething or had a very minor bug. Or both. However, on Saturday he unceremoniously puked over both his unsuspecting parents. To make matters worse, I had fed him some spinach quiche a few hours beforehand, so the whole experience was way more unpleasantly GREEN than it could have been.

Something I love about Laura and I is that when there’s a crisis, we snap into team mode really well. So she held Dante while I wiped down the three of us and the carpet, then I took care of him while she showered and vice versa. I called our pediatrician, and because it was a Saturday I got some reserve call person at Children’s Hospital. She asked me about 10,000 questions, all of which I answered along the lines of, “No, he hasn’t been doing that. No, that’s seemed fine.” Etc. The end diagnosis was that he may have a little stomach bug. So we fed him bland foods and stuff for the next day and a half, and no recurrences. We also gave him some PediaLyte and plenty of water, and he kept that stuff down and showed no signs of dehydration.

Personally, I suspect the quiche. I assume he was objecting to eggs or spinach or something. Either that or he’s seen that damned Burger King commercial way too often. (Actually, even once is way too often.)

  1. Kansas says, “Ick.”

    My objection is not so much to the green puke part of the story. Rather, it is to the fact that I had never seen nor even heard of that Burger King commercial, and now I have. And you are right, even once is too many times. Thanks for that.
