Merry Christmas

I probably have the only 5-year-old who is still asleep at 10:45 on Christmas morning. Sweet Daughter was up all night. Vomit, drink Gatorade, sleep for 30 minutes, lather, rinse, repeat. She’s already mastered a key college skill of woofing into the garbage can without actually having to get out of bed. I’m so proud.

I was thinking that Mary was up all night on Christmas Eve, too. Being a parent is tough, but at least I’m not responsible for the freakin’ Son of God.

Around 5:00 this morning, whatever demon that was possessing her decided to exit her body rather abruptly at both ends. She’s been sleeping ever since. I think it’s time to check for a pulse.


  1. Poor thing, not a fun way to celebrate Christmas. Hope the rest of the day goes a little smoother for both of you.

  2. Yeah, that's tough. Watching your young children be sick is bad enough, much less having to do it on Christmas day. I hope things get better for your family.

  3. Having a sick little on on Christmas is no fun. Hope she was able to sleep it off and feel better.

  4. Glad she's feeling better. This has been the season for sickness!
