Hello and Happy Sunday!
How was everyone’s weekends? Our was mostly great, until this morning. When I went in to get Emmett this morning he and his bed were covered in vomit. 🙁 As soon as I opened the door to his bedroom I could smell it, but it wasn’t until I turned on the light that I saw the mess.
He must have puked much earlier in the night, and either just ignored it, or slept through it. He had it in his hair, on his face, PJs and body. It was all over his mattress, blankets and stuffed animals. I felt like a terrible mother!! My poor child had slept all night in his own vomit, but he didn’t cry or make a peep all night (we still use a monitor).
I know there was nothing I could have done, but I really felt bad for him. We quickly got to work cleaning him and his room up, but still can’t seem to get rid of the stench. Everything that got covered, has been lysol’d (a few different times), we’ve scrubbed the rug and his mattress and it still stinks. We got some fabreeze and some of the powder you put in the carpet and then vacuum up, I’m hoping one or both work. Any mom’s out there have any advice?
Needless to say we’ve had a very low-key day. Just cuddling and keeping Emmett happy, poor little guy. I love that little booga-loo!!
The rest of the weekend was awesome, though! We spent a lot of time outdoors, visited with my parents, watched some Thomas the Tank Engine and just relaxed. We all head back to work and school tomorrow, but there is only 5 more wake-ups until we’re on vacation (OH YES, I am counting!). 🙂
And now, this Week’s Meal Plan
Sunday – Pork Loin & Corn on the Cobb (carry-over)
Monday – Mexican Pizzas (carry over)
Tuesday – Marinated Chicken & Zucchini
Wednesday – Corned Beef (in the crock-pot), cabbage and red potatoes
Thursday – Homemade Steak Subs & Fries
Friday – Tilapia & Cauliflower
Saturday – Chicken and Leeks
We had a couple of carry-overs from last week because one day we just scrounged around the house, Seamus didn’t feel like cooking and then we ordered delicious pizza. 😉
Here’s hoping the week goes by quickly, so that I can begin relaxing. I really and truly need it! It’s been since February since I’ve had a day off, other than a company holiday. Call me tuckered out!
Any advice to get the puke smell out of a room?
What’s on your meal plan this week?
As usual, I’m linking up with Laura from Mommy, Run Fast! and Jill from jillconyers.com – join the party and link-up your delicious food plan for the week and other fun foodie finds.
Oh no- poor guy!! Hmm, I don’t know- I use baking soda and vinegar or lemon juice diluted in water for just about everything… worth a try, maybe? You should definitely be on countdown to vacation- so exciting!
Definitely worth a try!! Everyone keeps suggesting vinegar and lemon juice…I think I’m going to give it a try. 4 more wake ups!
Oh no. I hope he feels better soon! Cuddles help 🙂
Cuddles totally help!! I love his warm body cuddled with mine. Best feeling ever!
Oh yuck!! I had that happen once, but not to that degree with my youngest. She’s a great sleeper and not much wakes her up. Would a box of baking soda placed in the room absorb the smell? It works for my fridge, so perhaps a bedroom is the same?
That’s not a terrible idea, and something I had not thought of. We sprinkled it on the floor, but it may just help deodorize the room. Good thinking!!
