Unpleasant, but Mommy's & Daddy's duty....

Last night was not a good night for Anna. She woke up and started crying about 12:30. I'm the one who gets to take care of crying kids in the night, but last night I strongly hinted that it was his turn this time. So, Brandon got up to take her downstairs to get a drink and Anna threw up all over herself and Daddy (lucky me :-)) Poor little girl had puke in her hair and daddy was covered from neck to waist. Off to the shower for both of them and time for mom to clean up the living room floor. Praise the Lord for wood floors. I am so glad we don't have carpet on our main floor. It makes cleaning so much easier.

So, that was puke #1. After her shower we put on a movie for her and she fell asleep on the couch. A few hours later she woke up crying and proceeded to throw up all over herself and the couch. Puke #2. Mommy and Daddy were wise enough to put blankets over the couch cushions so at least the couch didn't get much on it. Anna was not so lucky and needed another bath, which she wasn't at all thrilled about. Brandon never did get back to sleep after puke #1 and ended up finally crawling into bed at 4:30 this morning.

So, Anna, Brandon and I are pretty tired today. We had to stay home from church to let the little one recover. I'm not doing too bad because I am pretty used to getting up a couple times a night anyway. Anna usually wakes up crying once a night needing a drink and a little love. She then goes right back to sleep, which is good.

Well, I guess I will try and get some laundry done today since I will be home. We finally mowed the lawn yesterday after all the rain we had this past week. Now I just need some sun so my tomatoes will ripen.

Verses of the day: Ephesians 2:8 & 9
"For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast."
