Notice the sheet and the towel? I wish they were in my car an hour prior to this photo.
On Monday Audrey had the start of a cold. On Tuesday it was a barky cough and cold but still not that bad. Wednesday she definitely had barky cough and a hoarse voice but made it through the school day with school saying she never coughed at all and seemed fine. I figured it was a mild case of croup or a virus. So Thursday Celia woke up with the barky cough and a sore throat. She stayed home and Audrey went to school. Around noon Pete got a call that Audrey was sweaty and not feeling well. So he got her (he worked from home that day) and put her down from a nap in which she played and apparently was feeling better. That is until the night…. She woke up with a coughing fit with a 102 temp (her highest and longing lasting temp so far) and then vomited. Fun times. So off to the doctor in the morning to find out it is just a virus. The vomiting is from the coughing and the fact that illness makes her reflux worse. Just as we pulled into our neighborhood coming home Audrey started coughing and then I heard the worst sound… Basically my child exploded everywhere, carseat, back of my seat, on the floor, beside her. It was not pretty. I opened her door and we both just sorted of stared at each other. I had no idea where to start. So I ran in, grabbed towels and got her out of the carseat. This is the moment in which she turns to me and says "Momma, you don't have to do "uppy", I will walk". I did not have the heart to tell her that there was no way that I was going to pick vomit covered little self up anyway.
