Believe me when I say the above image is far more attractive than the one presented yesterday…first by Violet, and then by me. We went to Amelia’s 3rd birthday party at the pony farm, and on the way home Violet had a cookie tossing “episode” just as we were pulling up to the house. I ran inside to get a towel so I could extract her from the mess of the carseat. I started taking her out, but when the smell hit me I began to gag uncontrollably. Phillip came back out after taking Ivy in, and found Violet still in her seat and me with my eyes watering, making some very unpleasant sounds, and trying desperately to pull it together so I could get my poor daughter out of the car. He took over while I staggered into the front yard, still gag-gag-gagging.

Phillip started a bath for Violet while I ran around a little longer, trying to gain control of these spasms. Finally, hand over mouth, I ran back into the house and made it to the other bathroom, where I joined in Violet’s ignominious fate.

I have no idea WHY this happened to me! In the last 3 years of parenthood I have come across my share of disgusting bodily fluids. I have NEVER gagged or have been made sick. My stomach was ironclad, or so I thought. I often mocked Phillip for gagging while changing a dirty diaper. Oh yes, I mocked him gleefully.

But no more. He has banished me from making fun of him, and frankly I am feeling too sheepish now to poke fun. I have learned my lesson.

Here are some pictures of yesterday, before it all went awry.
