The End Has Come for Red Koolaid

Warning: This post is not for weak stomachs.

About 1:30 this morning, we heard Grace coughing and crying in her room. We walked in to find that she had projectile vomited red koolaid all over herself, her bed, and about 6 square feet of carpet. With visions of the realtor coming tomorrow, I ran to get the carpet cleaner while Todd started cleaning up Grace. Todd changed the sheets and got Grace cleaned up. After 20 minutes of scrubbing I managed to get the red stains out of the carpet.

I was about to start the explanation of why "lambie" was "taking a bath" instead of sleeping in her bed when it happened AGAIN. Projectile vomit all over the clean sheets, all over Grace, and this time about 12 square feet of carpet. Todd took her and started a bath. I stripped down the bed again and sprayed the floor with carpet cleaner. After about 45 minutes of scrubbing, the carpet looks OK.

We let her stay in the bath for a while to make sure she wasn't going to throw up again, then Todd got her out and started drying her off. She vomited AGAIN all over the bathroom floor and bathmats and herself. I decided to keep her up for a while, so after we got cleaned up a third time, we are now downstairs watching Little Einsteins.

Update: she just threw up all over the couch and me.

Note to self: NO MORE RED KOOLAID!!!!
