No rest for the wicked

I woke up this morning with a migraine and proceeded to throw up. Poor Ava was so sweet. She was very concerned about me hugging the toilet and making the barfy noises I was. :( So I managed to blurt out, “Mommy’s very sick.” She kept saying, “very sick.” Then I told her that “Mommy…
