The most dreaded words after the kiddos have gone to sleep?
"Mama, I need a bucket."
Lauren Kate said she wasn't feeling well. I got her settled on the couch with her blanket and a bucket, and then she promptly fell asleep. I watched her for about an hour, and was thrilled when she stayed asleep and didn't get sick at all. I transferred her back to her bed without incident.
We were thanking our lucky stars that we avoided sickness this time!
