We had our local Down syndrome group Christmas party on Saturday. Emma Sage was so excited all morning, eagerly getting ready to go see her friends.
When we arrived [we rode in Daddy's car on a bumpy road] she ran in with a smile from ear to ear. She stopped in the middle of the wooden dance floor and proceeds to throw up a little bit. We clean her up, clean up and disinfect the floor and figure she had motion sickness from the ride over.
She plays and dances, but is not her usualy 'bubbly' self. She did get up on stage and sing Christmas Carols [and what a little ham-bone this child is.....she is such the performer].
The big jolly guy in the velvet red suit arrived and Emma Sage was just besides herself.
After the exchanging of gifts, my little girl looks over to me and says "Mommy, my belly hurts real bad" to which she proceeds to finish empting the contents of her stomach that were not spewed all over the floor earlier.
We pack up and head home......to a warm bath and a night full of vomiting everytime she took a drink.
My poor little girl, she is very rarely ill, and of all days for her to get a stomach bug, but at her 'PARTY' as she thinks the party was just for her! lol!!!
Here are a few pictures from our day.....
Abbie, Emma Sage, Devonie and Hannah. Abbie is our friend that visits us in the mornings and after school, Devonie is Emma Sage's 'bestest friend' or so she tells us! and Hannah lives in our township also and is one of three [triplets]
Dancing with Devonie and her Daddy. We are going to send Devonie an invitation for a tea party after the holidays, as I just love how these two play together and are really developing a little friendship.
American Idol.....watch out, here comes Emma Sage
Sharing the time in the limelight!!!
This child just loves to perform and she just loves to sing!!!
Giving a big kiss to Santa......
and then I stopped taking pictures as you really don't want to see a stomach flu in full force!
I hope you are all well and not catching any of these yucky bugs going around [ah, the joy of winter season]
