Hey, so what makes you qualified to talk about vomit, Casey? Your degree is in graphic design, not medicine.
Well let me tell you dear friend, I am qualified to talk about vomit because I have dealt with a lot in my lifetime. From hangovers (shame) to pregnancy (two with hyperemesis!) as well as babies to grown children, I’ve seen it (and cleaned it) all. I know there are a lot of people who are squeamish about vomit, my sister in law being one of them. For you people? I’ll spare you the tales of strawberry vomit running down my walls and the one time I was woken up with vomit to the back of the head.
Here’s the cold hard truth: if you have kids, you are going to have to deal with vomit at one time or another. The more prepared you are, the less grossed out you’ll be (well, that may be a stretch, let’s just say you’ll have an easier time cleaning it all up which helps exponentially in the vomit department.) Toddler vomit may be the worst, since they can’t tell you it’s coming, it’s comprised of real food and like hell if their first instinct is to run to a toilet or sink. Cody and I have dealt with our fare share of baby barf over the last week, once on foreign turf in the middle of the night and the other mid-day during a 3 hour road trip though nowhere. I’m pleased to say we pulled off the first clean up in under 6 minutes (bathed, clean sheets, back in bed) the second clean up took about 25 minutes, but there was a car seat, luggage and 3 degree weather to contend with.
How does one make the possibility of vomit easier on themselves? Well let me tell you.
