Stinky Car

Well it's confirmed. I must be completely in love with this little child that came into my life because I passed a HUGE test tonight for the 2nd time.

Tonight on the way home from dinner out with a friend, T was SUPER crabby. In fact, the crabbies started at the restaurant, which isn't really like her. Crabby to the point that I asked the waitress for the bill - STAT!

Suddenly from the backseat I hear it. PUKE. VOMIT. You get the picture. Well maybe not, and that's probably best!! Needless to say I had winner, winner, chicken dinner ALL over my darling sweet girl AND her clean car-seat! Awww man.

I pull over at a Wendy's stripped her down to the onesie and took the car-seat out to wipe down with the wipes from her diaper bag. And I am proud to say that I didn't even gag once. I was horrified, disgusted and seriously grossed out by touching puke, mind you. But I didn't gag once!

Those of you parent-types reading this may say "Yeah? So what? That's no biggie!". It is for me! See, I am a sympathetic puker. I don't even have to smell it sometimes -- just the noise will get me going. And this incident in the car is actually puke #2. Go mom!!

So my car is being fumigated tonight in the garage with a 2nd wipe down of the seat, febr**ze party on the seat and windows down. Laundry is running and my hands have been washed - thrice ;)

Ugh...puke is never pleasant, I don't think I'll ever get used to it, but you did great! I hope that T feels better soon.

That will be my big test, too, Amy! I hope T is feeling better. Poor girl.

You mean you didn't want your car to have that "new puke smell?" lol! Glad you made it through--not fun! :)

Okay, seriously, have you seen the Mother's Day video on my blog? If not, you need to go watch it and then get yourself a gift and celebrate... your sweety just "Mommed" your ride! :)

Welcome to Motherhood! Bless your heart...I am so sorry...puke in the car is the WORST. It is a smell that is hard to get out...lots of baking soda, carpet fresh, professional cleaning...whatever it takes. Make sure you leave the windows down for a few days....
ugh.

Hope little T is better now!

I ain't saying "Yeah...so what?" I SO don't want that to happen to me, but it sounds as though it's inevitable. I totally get where your coming from.
I hope T feels better. Something she ate didn't agree?
Another test passed...you're so good.

Yeah, I totally understand. We dont have the puke problem but a daily diaper blowout. Maybe he eats too much, I dont know. Anyhow I am no longer in fear of poop since I have had it everywhere. Welcome to Motherhood I guess

Oh I hope T feels better. I've had marshmellow vomit (thanks to daycare) in the car before - nice and sticky and no fun to clean up. Like you, I normally have trouble when someone's sick, but that good old mom gene manages to kick in somehow!! You did well Mama!!

Another notch in your book! At least now you know why she was so crabby! So fun!

Mike and Heidi Lee said...

Oops...I meant to say another notch in your "belt"!
