The Vomit Comet
Why is it that whenever, and I do mean WHENEVER, this family travels by car, said car soon becomes the vomit comet????!!!!! Just 2 hours down the road on Thursday afternoon, our youngest proceeded to get quite car sick. Sadly we still had at least 4 more hours to go. So, we pulled over at a nice Hampton Inn, cleaned our little monkey in their bathroom, disposed of some yuck, put a clean towel on her seat, and headed on down the road. So, you ask, why do we not medicate our children with meds for car sickness? O, wise one, we do. And I had. I had given our 2 youngest some Bonine and she still became sick. On Friday, we continued our adventure by giving 3 children Dramamine, and all 5 made the 4 hour trip just fine. Praise the Lord. So, we confidently hop back in the car today, Sunday. Hmmm.... is all this travel worth one day of NOT traveling? I am not sure! I gave girl #4 some Bonine & girl #5 some Dramamine. The Bonine is chewable and apparently does not work like good ole Dramamine. About 2 hours from our latest destination, girl #4 gets sick. We were prepared with the usual towels and vomit bowl, but the VOMIT COMET STRIKES AGAIN. Mama needs a hot shower & some peace & quiet!!
