Dear Bora,
Oooo!  Does this give me an open invitation to talk about my own daughter's puking habits?  K didn't spit up much as a baby but began throwing up when she was a toddler.  She has a strong sense of smell and an even stronger gag reflex.  If she takes too big of a bite, she gags and pukes.  If she coughs too hard, she gags and pukes.  When she started potty training, she would poop on the potty, cheer, but then smell it and puke.  She once puked because she smelled dog poop on someone's shoe.  She recently (accidentally) puked in a stranger's purse at a birthday party.  My kid vomits all the time.  I, too, keep hoping this is something she will outgrow soon.  That or she's going to have to learn to clean it up herself since her Daddy also has a strong gag reflex and will vomit if he sees or smells someone else's vomit.  I'm tired of being the designated vomit cleaner.  Thankfully while many things gross K out enough to make her spew, seeing her Mom clean vomit off her shoes is not one of those things.  It's not uncommon to see her continue to eat a cookie while I'm still wiping the chunks out of her hair.
Kids are gross.
Kate
