A Solitary Observation

When I was in high school I heard a poem that I instantly loved and memorized and have remembered ever since. It goes like this:

Solitary Observation Brought Back from a Sojourn in Hell

At midnight tears
Run in your ears

by Louise Bogan (that part I didn't memorize, I just googled the title - I love technology)

So this week, slightly from hell itself, Stomper made a solitary observation of his own:

Barf is yellow.
Throw-up is brown.

I guess he needed to make a distinction. Helpful, though gross, and now all you need to know is that we're all recovering. Only Stomper and I were really afflicted, but when mama ain't happy, ain't nobody happy, right?

I'll try to not let my next post be about any type of bodily function.

That boy is hilarious. I love when you post what your kids say.

You are too funny. I think you deserve a vacation. You have been dealing with too much illness lately. I hope things are looking up, instead of down into a toilet bowl!

Sometimes I feel like my life is all about bodily functions, too. The joys of motherhood, huh?

I'm glad you guys are feeling better!
