A Different Kind of Bowl Weekend

After our ideal weekend last week we were slapped by the sicky brigade this week. Full throttle. Even though it was Super Bowl weekend we all spent more time with the Sick Bowl and Toilet Bowl. Bennet got the stomach bug Wednesday night-Thursday. It hit me Thursday night and all day Friday. Scout had it Friday-Sat. Nick got it Friday afternoon. You get the hint. It boomeranged back a little yesterday for Bennet and I got it last night and today.

Bennet was kind of freaked out by the whole experience. So to make her embrace the bowl she put some kitty cat and Star Wars stickers on it. Somehow having Darth Vader and Chewbacca('Bacca' as she says) embellies makes it a little easier.

Can you say bleach water and Clorox wipes? If I never do another load of laundry of soiled, gag inducing pajamas/sheets it will be too soon.

Here is a photo that encapsulates the weekend. Bennet with her blanket, pedilyte, Stoli kitty, Sick Bowl, towel and remote. Oh and Cheetos. Yes- stellar parenting there. But at that point if she wanted to eat a banana split with triple chocolate and a Coke I would have let her.
Tomorrow is Tuesday. Let's hope it is TERRIFIC!!
