It's official

I'm not sure how we've skirted this for 5 1/2 years but we have.  
But baby, the party is over.  
We had our first "throw up - exorcist event" starting at noon yesterday.  It started with Charlie saying "My tummy hurts" and ending up with projectile vomit that spanned 3 beanbags chairs, 1 leather seat, 24 feet of carpet and my front side (just 15 minutes out of my shower of course).  
I couldn't feel too upset .... jeez ...  moms of most 6 & 5 year olds have been through at least 10 of these events by now.  We were starting to chalk our record up to the strong Korean gut but now this may only hold true for Jet.    Well as a courtesy to our readers, we will not post pictures of this event.  
We're happy to report that exactly 12 hours (to the minute) after the first symptoms were recorded, all evidence has dissipated ... thus the naming of the "12 hour bug".  
For you moms in training ... we have used this vomit episode to drive home the result of "eating your buggers".   Though there is no true correlation between the two behaviors ... you've got to use the material you have!
