Bad Smells and Premonitions

Today I smelled vomit. Off and on all day. I was sniffing my hair, my coat, my shirt; trying to figure out where the smell was coming from. Fast forward >>>>> Violet woke up in a foul mood. She's taken a nap the last two days which is very unusual. She was telling us her foot hurt, her leg hurt, her head hurt, her belly hurt. I sat with her on the couch and said to Conor,"Maybe she just doesn't feel good." BLLLAAAHHHHH.... all over me. So here's the clincher: It always happens. Everytime my kids get sick, I smell vomit all day. BEFORE they're ill at all. You would think that I would eventually just say "hey, someone's getting sick tonight...." But it makes me feel a little craaazy. I mean, it is a little odd, right? Violet sent herself to bed at 6. Poor wee flower.

A mother's premonition, I would say. I hate to hear that she's not feeling well. :( Wonder where she picked it up? Blech...I hate to think that it's probably going around right now.

So far no wake up pookies (our term of endearment for vomit). The whole vomit in the bed, middle of the night bath thing...not so fun.

Every mom senses things in a different way! At least you know it's coming!

(I, unfortunately, do not possess your talent and we did have the middle-of-the-night vomit last week. Luckily, my daughter is 9 and was able to TRY to make it to the bathroom so no bath was needed. Needed new sheets...and she only made it to the sink--so she proudly identified all the parts of her dinner for me--but you really didn't need to know that.)
