An Example Of When Kids Suck

That was my night….

But the fun didn’t stop there…nope…I got to change sheets 4 times, clean puke off the couch, the carpet, the door, and more linen than I knew I even had…

This is the shit no one tells you about…



  1. Dammit, I didn’t read the title and saw the pic of y’all in bed and got all excited for a hilarious post. Instead, a puke post. BUMMER! Although I GUESS it was even more of a bummer for you.

  4. I remember this all too well. I missed my brother’s second wedding because my daughter was spewing all over the place that day.

  5. Oh My! I hope the winning child does not share the wealth. I seem to have trained my children to get to the bathroom first… it’s like my crowning mom achievement! I remember calling my sister when The Boy was one and I was pregnant and telling her, “The highlight of my day was getting my one-year-old to thrown up IN the toilet!” She still hasn’t had children yet and The Boy is 9. Do you think it stuck with her?

      I swear, next time I’m going to throw a puking kid on him

    • Sara says:

      Oh… I HATE it when The Hubs complains he didn’t get enough sleep at night when I was the one up all night changing sheets. HATE IT.

  8. Sending you lots of love (and disinfectant) !!!

    Obviously someone taught us to run for the toilet when we’re about to spew. Why won’t the children learn this simple trick?!

    • holly says:

      I’ve tried so hard to teach this to the kids….it only seems to work during the daytime…sigh

  10. AnnMarie says:

    That completely sucks. I hate that part of motherhood. I’d say parenthood but they always seem to puke on us and not their dads. I hope no one else gets it and that your little one feels better soon.

    • holly says:

      I swear, it is always the moms….next time I’m going to pick up a kid mid puke and throw him on the hubs

  11. At first I was like “why the fuck are you guys standing in a pool of water with your eyes closed?”


    Hugs hon…sick vomiting kids are a major bummer.

    One of my favorite comedians always used to joke that nothing will get parents to jump out of bed faster than a child puking. You’re drawings are just top notch :)

  19. Tina McGraw says:

    Ha!!!! Two things: the slobber running out your mouths 2. Wonder why they always go to moms side of the bed? It doesn’t matter what obstacles they have to cross to get to my side…they always do it..weird.
    Being puked on? That’s some bad stuff…that smell sticks with ya for a while.hope the kiddos are better.

  20. Why do they always come to our side of the bed?? I remember one night when Jacob had a trail of puke coming from his room to the other side of our house all the way through our room. He just wanted us to know that he was puking, so he puked all over the damn upstairs.

    EWWW! Yuck! You’re ‘puke’ card is up. It’s Daddy’s turn! And no this stuff isn’t discussed much. There needs to be a book about the ‘real’ parenting stuff. Hey maybe that would help with teen or unwanted pregnancy!

  22. Oh shit your drawings are priceless!!! I’m sorry you had to go through that – you’re right, no one tells you about the shit, but we all somehow get through it and keep at it.

  23. Oh god, I HATE when that happens! I remember the first time P threw up in the middle of the night and hubs dealt with it. He moved her to G’s room (I guess expecting his infant self to just sleep through her whining) and LEFT THE PUKE COVERED BEDDING ON HER BED!!!!!! He told me when I got up in the morning that it was there….that was just soooo much fun.

    I like when I am in the bathroom tending to a fountain of bile spewing from one of my kids and my husband can barely bring himself to run in the bathroom to hand me a cool rag for their head and run back out like he is trying to better his time from the last event. ugh!

    It is something that provides them with comfort.

  28. Kids suck ass… grand-kids too… they don’t tell you that either. But, they go home. Sometimes. Unless their parents dropped them off 1 day and never came back. True story. More why kids suck. =)

    OMG. You are preaching the truth, sister. Our daughter came all the way downstairs and into our bedroom one morning to tell us she had to puke – and then she did – right in our doorway. Yum.
