Things That Make You Go EWWWW

We've been house hunting for a few weeks and have taken the boys to look at the houses.  Most of the houses are vacant and not cleaned very well.  Gus and John just run all over the vacant houses exploring every nook and cranny.  After looking in a house that was really dirty (so dirty that John's hands were black from putting them on the floors) we saw Gus was chewing on something and Hans pulled a gross piece of candy out of his mouth that he must have found on the dirty floor.  I thought I was going to throw up.

Speaking of throw up, John had a little bout of that this past week.  He has gotten sick before, but he wasn't really sick.  It was more of the 'I ran around too much and now the coughing makes me throw up' sickness.  In those times we know he is going to vomit when he coughs then shakes his hands around and does a little dance.  By then it is too late to get him to a toilet, or even a tiled floor.  This week was different though.  We were able to get him to the bathroom and at 1 in the morning Hans was teaching John the proper way to throw up in a toilet.  Evidently for boys peeing standing up and throwing up standing up have two completely different techniques.  One requires you to arch your back so as to get everything in the toilet and the other requires you to lean forward to accomplish the same task.  Mixing up the two creates quite a gross mess.

Sounds like there is never a dull moment with the boys!

Are you guys looking to buy? After all that work you did on the stairs!

Yes, we are looking to buy. I spent hours on those stairs, but now I'm ready for a new project!
