  1. Awww, poor thing! I hope she's feeling better really soon! I too experienced throwing-up in the carseat just a month or so ago. Not fun. Hang in there!!! :)

  7. Oh you poor thing. I am a day late in commenting so I hope that Friday night was better and that the little one is back to her chipper self in no time. May you have no more vomitus episode in your near future.

  11. See now, this is why I want it to be summer all the time. Because kids don't get sick as often in summer, and you don't have so much vomit to worry about. Horrible day. Ick! But look on the bright side: you got a great blog post out of it.
