Weekend Reads: Kids Movie Research/Reviews, Rock Star Parents, Real Family Photos
Well hello hello! It’s been a fun and eventful weekend here, as my dear little 2 year old son has some sort of stomach bug. It started on his way home from daycare Friday….I got a text from my husband saying he’d thrown up. When I got home 20 minutes later, my son was sitting on the couch looking very pale and sad. I asked him how he was and he said “Mama, I spilled my tummy. I spilled it on the floor!”. From here on in, this is how I will refer to all vomit, always.
But enough about tummy spills, what kind of link are you looking for this weekend?
