Happy Mother's Day [Blech]

Forget breakfast in bed. Around our house, the way to treat mom all special is to catch the kid's vomit yourself while mom sleeps in.

Although later, my wife caught the bedtime bottle in her skirt (it was on its way back up).

Translation: the kid's sick, the laundry stinks, the sheepskin rug's off the floor, and daddy's typing may be a little sporadic today [but with a few identifiable chunks].

Dude I feel your pain. Mother's Day here was very similar. Lots of puking and our first baby all nighter under our belts.

Hugs to you and I hope she's feeling better soon!

We're sick over here, too. Mommy and baby slept in the big bed while Daddy slept like a capital X in the guestroom (with dog, think lower case e) between his legs. They said they were never coming back.

Here's a warning to expectant fathers. Technically, just because she HASN'T had the baby YET (we're due early July) does NOT mean you get off the hook for Mother's Day. Somehow in the back of my mind I knew I should be buying a card or something, but that fell into the "nice things to do" category instead of the "do this or you'll feel bad for the entire weekend" category.

Anyway, too late to help other idiots like me, but put it on your calendar for next year.

I warned my expectant dad friend several times over the last few months. A week ago, he said his wife said she didn't want anything for mother's day until the baby is out.

I warned him that that statement had "TRAP" written all over it...
