So we woke very excited this morning
Mum, Sam, Miss 5, Miss 3 & me were going to see the DISNEY PRINCESSES ON ICE
Oh yeah – loves it!
It should be noted that Miss 5 wasn’t feeling great yesterday. She had a headache and even took a nap. Which hasn’t happened since she was 2
She still wasn’t 100% this morning & I even called the Doctor to ask what the symptoms are for swine flu because I’m a worry wart!
They said she just sounds like she has a bug and as long as she’s drinking lots of fluids and peeing and pooping normally – all is good
Too much information? But wait – there’s MORE!
I fed her a little fruit and a glass of OJ and she was good to go
So the 5 of us jumped in a taxi for the long ride to Sydney Olympic Park – where the show was being held
Mum & Sam were giving me shit because my already large handbag was overflowing with ‘just in case’ stuff
Snacks – just in case the girls got hungry
Water – just in case they got thirsty etc
So, we’re about 40 minutes into the drive and Miss 5 says her tummy hurt
All the parents reading this already know where this is going don’t you?
She threw up
In the taxi
And it smelt like watermelon
So I get the towel and change of clothes out of my bag (I told you it was full)
Clean her off – tell the driver to keep going – we’ll drop the other 3 girls off, then turn around and go back to the apartment
Miss 5 is bawling at this point.
She’s embarrassed she ‘spit up’ and now she’s not going to see the Princesses
I gotta tell you that the taxi driver was awesome.
Apart from the fact he was Australian (an English speaking taxi driver – what are the odds?) he was a total champ about the whole thing
I guess he’s seen it all in his line of work
But I’m pretty sure I wouldn’t have been that cool about the back of my taxi being covered in red fruit flavoured vomit, had I been driving
Yay for #4611! (I didn’t get his name)
So after a pretty uneventful drive back thank god I couldn’t wait to have a shower and change out of my spew soaked clothes
I didn’t bring a change of clothes for me – I’m not THAT organised
So now, we’re on the couch, watching Thumbelina
I’m sure we’ll here all about the Disney Princesses when Miss 3 gets back
Miss 5 is hoping Nanna brings her back a Princess Doll
I hope she brings me a magic wand
*no photos – left the camera with Nanna (after I cleaned the chunks of watermelon off it)
