During the plague of twenty ten, the best advice our pediatrician could give was stick to the brat diet and try to keep them hydrated.

For those of you lucky enough not to know what that is, here you go...

{B}ananas {R}ice {A}pples/sauce {T}oast.

Basically, it's code for bland and blah.

Which was fine for the first few days

and then the children started to revolt.

Emily worked the old bait and switch with her 18th apple...

Anna didn't even try to hide her distain. She just got violent.....

Things got a little hairy when they started working as a team. One on distraction, the other on look-out and the third on securing the goods.

Hey mom, look at me! I'm in a box! I'm cute! Take my picture! MOM!MOM!MOM!MOM!MOM!MOM!


I think the goal was the goldfish. We did eventually give up on the whole BRAT thing because they were still throwing up. No matter what they ate.

Although, for the record, red jello isn't the best idea.

You're welcome.

  1. Oh my goodness! Still throwing up? I had that problem a few years back when my oldest just couldn't get over the bug she had for 2+ weeks. Yes the BRAT diet is supposed to work, but my daughter also revolted after a few days. The pediatrician finally said to try pop tarts (cinnamon) and gatorade (or capri sun sport) and gave us a gel form of phenergen (sp?) that you place on their forearm and rub together. She finally got past it after a week of the new treatments. Don't know if you can get that phenergen for the littles, but Lainey might be old enough (at least, she is the same age that my oldest was when she had it). We are currently fighting the stomach bug here too, but it has only been 1 week so far. Praying for you all!
