Please Stand By...

November 15, 2007

Please stand by, folks. The winners of the haiku contest will be announced later today. Just to review, a haiku has five syllables in the first line, seven in the second, and five in the third. We had some very creative interpretations!

In the mean time, I have a sick James to attend to. Last night we unfortunately found ourselves smack in the middle of Toddler Vomitfest 2007--not my idea of a good time. Never being one to withhold the details, I'll let you know that we had 4 pajama changes, 5 sheet changes, 7 pillowcase changes, and a zillion blanket changes. By the end of the night, James was sleeping on top of bath sheets and using beach towels for blankets.

Poor kid.

I'll be back in a little while.

I hope James is feeling better soon. What is worse than James being sick is all the extra laundry you have to do now.

How could he hold that much? Good luck with that!

I hope that James gets better soon. It's awful when a child is sick and they get sick on everything. It can be very exhausting. Hang in there.

Oh, no! Poor James. Poor Mom and Dad helplessly standing by and watching him vomit. :(

Ugh, I hate when the kiddies are sick. It's the worst :( So, does this mean he is going to get another bath before Tuesday?

hi there!

I hope your James is feeling better now, sounded pretty impressive! ;-)

Good luck on your haiku contest. I don't usually do 5/7/5 haiku but I'm sure they'll be really good.

all my best,
