A Comedy of Errors

Last night will go down as one of the worst in history.  Henry’s fever has been around 104 all weekend.  Last night the puking started.  He would just cough and cough, and then he’d puke.  I brought him in to bed with me after the first puke.  I thought he was finished.  He fell asleep next to me and then woke coughing 20 minutes later and puked.  While I was cleaning up the mess, Nacho our beloved little puppy walked in the room and pooped.  Then I cleaned that up.  Then I got back into bed with Henry and he puked again.

Love means learning to let go of the cleaning game and sleeping in a pile of your child’s vomit so that he can have the dry side of the bed.

About jordanbucher

My name is Jordan E. Bucher, formerly Jordan E. Pitcher, aka Wondertwin, Tadpole, Jojo. I live in Austin, TX by way of NYC for 7 years, London for a stop, Minnesota for 4 years, and Kansas for 18 very long years. I am married to Matt for nearly 4 years (smooching on and off for 7), and we have a son Henry Wallace who is almost 1. A crazy sheltie named Riley also lives with us. She herds sheep and vacuum cleaners in her sleep. I have worked in publishing for 10 years. I started as an editor and switched to being a publicist because I thought it would be cool to get paid for watching tv and reading magazines all day. I am proud to say I was a cupcake artist at Magnolia Bakery on my days off, way before the Saturday Night Live rap. I have met Carrie Bradshaw and Felicity, and once Kyle McLaughlin flirted with me. My interests include bran, sending inappropriate emails to unintended recipients, and naps (not mine, of course: Henry's). I like sushi and red meat. And red wine.
