Not Going To Cry Over Spilled Sour Milk.

One of the times Charlie spit up on me today, we were downstairs. I would normally take my shirt off and run upstairs with him but we had the DirectTV guy over fixing our satellite and he doesn't want to see the girls in all their breastfeeding glory.

After I changed Charlie into clean clothes, I realized I didn't want the vomit on my shirt to get on him so I had a brilliant idea: turn my shirt around so the vomit was now on my back. So I did that and wa-la, vomit again on the sweatshirt..even on the hood.


I went outside to show Rob how ridiculous I looked. On my way upstairs to shower, Charlie threw up on my pants.

One time my sister in law told me she could count on one hand the number of times her 1 year old daughter has ever spit up. I didn't know if I should be happy for her, or slap her. Just kidding Kathy, I love you and am happy Carla is not a spitter upper. But, it would be nice to get a break every once in a while!

One reason I'm looking forward to going back to work: not smelling like throw up all day - and wearing makeup.

I've gotten so that I wait until I know he's done spitting up on me before I change us. I call him Sir Urps-a-lot/our little greek aristocrat - eating until he's overfull and then - BLECH - all over mommy.

I see we have similar "at home" uniforms!

Good luck getting make up on before you go to work. I recommend doing it in the car :-)

C will still be sleeping when I go so I think its possible but I do need to make time to pump.

That post was hilarious...I'm sure the TV guy would've been thrilled to meet "the girls" but I think you made the right choice. Maybe Charlie gets his spit-up tendency from my brother. There is a small bit about that in my column tomorrow...
