Those of you who are my Facebook friends already know this, but I just wanted to say here that hermette jinxed me.

Yesterday my sister and I went into Springfield to finish our Christmas shopping. This is about a 45 minute drive for us, because we live out in the middle of nowhere IL. Her little boy was going with her husband to do the guy shopping thing, so Max and I were with my sister and her 8year old and her 3 month old. Things were going just fine, the baby had slept the whole drive, we were listening to the Christmas station on the radio. Lovely start to the day, right?

We pull into the parking lot at Macy's in the mall and before we can even get out of the car. My niece pipes up from the back seat "Max is throwing up!"

So my poor kid empties his little stomach and then I have to strip him down in a parking lot where it is literally freezing (because it is winter in Illinois). Luckily I had a blanket and his stroller, so I bundled him up and snuggled him down in the stroller and headed into Macy's. My poor sister had to clean out the car seat. Fortunatley for her, most of the puke was on Max. Sadly, I had forgotten to pack extra clothes for Max, I usually have them, but he had of course had a huge leaky diaper last week in Wal-Mart and I had forgotten to put more clothes in the diaper bag.

Of course, Macy's idea of sale priced little boys clothes is not really the same as mine. So since the cheapest pants on the sale rack we $14 Nike sweatpants. I went ahead and paid $4 more for a pair of Levi's and got him a t-shirt as well.

Then I had to try to wash his hair in the sink of the Macy's bathroom. THAT was an adventure!

The saddest part was Max rolling through Macy's in his stroller saying "Why I throw up, Mommy?" :(

He was fine the rest of the day and ate like a little pig at lunch.

I think he might have gotten car sick, he had been drawing while we were driving and then his cousin was reading him a book. I have never gotten motion sickness, but Max's dad and his older brother both suffer from it severely.

Today I am going to do some baking at my mom's house because she has envious amounts of counter space in her kitchen and my little sister should be home from the Dominican Republic this afternoon. My parents are in Chicago picking her up now.

I'm with you on the whole throwing up in public thing. My daughter a couple of weeks ago threw up all over me 6 times in Wal-Mart over the course of 30 minutes while I tried to get her out of the store. Definitely not a "fun" thing at all.

Poor Max! Poor You!

Hope the rest of the holiday week goes cleaner!
