Here is a top parenting tip, from me to you:
If, as was the case here yesterday, your toddler has eaten an unusually heavy and sweet afternoon tea (ie pancakes with jam, and popcorn with butter);
and has then, not too long after, eaten a big bowl of pasta with a rich tomato sauce and cheese for dinner;
and has then spent a manic 15 minutes playing Duck, Duck, Goose with you and her sisters, amid much hilarity and frantic running;
it's not the world's smartest idea to then send her to play with her toy stove and plastic food in the loungeroom while you read to the big kids -
unless you want to spend 15 minutes scrubbing lurid orange-coloured upchuck off the carpet, and another 15 minutes doing this:
I'm just saying, is all. Learn from my mistakes.
You're welcome :-)
