People, here's some advice:

DON'T GIVE A KID TOO MANY RAISINS!

How do I know I gave her too many? Because I saw how many I had to pick up yesterday and last night when she threw up in my car, her bed, and later, my own bed. It was not a pretty sight, and considering that I hate raisins, I'm pretty sure I'll never get over that now.

I guess it might have just been a coincidence that she got some kind of stomach bug, but I'm not going to pretend that the previous days' steadily-increasing raisin intake to mammoth proportions didn't have something to do with it. Poor baby. At least she's almost back to normal now!

not fun. how many boxes of raisins do you think she ate?

It's hard to say because she ate boxes of different sizes. I got her a box at the gym that was kind of big, then she ate a couple smaller boxes at home.

I had been expecting a problem from the other end!

It obviously hasn't ruined her on raisins- she's still pointing to the cabinet and trying to say the word 'raisins.' Maybe we'll try some again tomorrow if she insists.

Poor emmylou!

I hope she feels better.

I too hate raisins. Praise you for picking them up and not hurling.

This is horrible (and I sort of hate myself for thinking it), but after yesterday's post I was wondering if a post like this would appear :)

And... You're amazing. I deeeeespise Elizabeth. I don't get reception on my TV anymore, so I only see the crazy things she says that are posted on YouTube.

Oh, and of course... I hope Emmylou feels better. And even more importantly, I hope this doesn't ruin raisins for her because they are just too yummy.
