Dining with kids

Last night we met up with friends who have kids around the same age as ours for dinner. Dining out with kids is never relaxing, never easy, but it's nice when the kids have someone their own age to entertain them. My husband picked them up from school and met me there as I had to work a little late. I knew something was wrong with my daughter when I saw her. She was very clingy and kept laying her head on our shoulders. I chalked it up to the unresolved ear infection we're still dealing with. Halfway through dinner, she starts projectile vomiting. My husband takes her home while the rest of us finish up dinner. You can always tell who are parents in situations like that. Kids throw up and the parents just keep on eating.

Ooh, I know how you feel. Parents across the board have that one thread that ties us together, the sickness thread. And ear infections? Puh-lease. We had three sets of tubes, adenoidectomy, tonsillectomy for ONE CHILD. One set of tubes for the other. the difference was no pacifier, I think. Good blog.
