Mommy Lessons: On Sick Babies and Spew

This morning, I happily announced to my boyfriend that I was finally wearing the Mango shirt that I bought during the last sale. (Lookbook post on the outfit tomorrow - too lazy to upload pics. Lol.) He absolutely loved the shirt on me and my entire ensemble, in general. However, after a hectic hospital and furniture window shopping day, he and I both fell straight asleep and I didn't even bother to change my clothes or Syrena's clothes - she was wearing her Zara shirt from Ninang Gwen Zamora, by the way (yes, the GMA artista).

A few hours later, Syrena started to cry [ her fever came back this morning :( ] so I cradled her in my arms on the bed and groggily gave her some medicine-filled milk. Bad move. Two seconds later, she quite suddenly spewed a hefty amount of phlegm-filled milk onto my Mango shirt, her Zara shirt and the bed sheets. Disgusting.

Moral of the story? Wake up, mommy, and focus! If your baby is sick, she needs you to give her all of her attention - no matter how tired you are. That way, your expensive clothes won't get spewed on and you won't have to worry about cleaning the sheets the next day, either. :p Well, this episode definitely woke me up. Back to work for me!
