Dear Makers of Pedialyte and Jello,
Who thought it was a good idea for things we feed sick kids to be brightly colored?
Orange, purple, red, green, why?!
Why not beige, white, cream, taupe?
It’s all well and good that it’s brightly colored on the way INTO the sick kid.
It’s all horrible and bad when it’s brightly colored and on the crib bumpers, carpet, stuffed animals, and wall.
There was so much puking going on in this house last week that we were choosing meals based on the color they would stain when they made a return appearance. Hence, Jello and Pedialyte were not options!
Make me clear products that don’t stain and I’ll be your customer for life (or at least until my kids are old enough to clean up their own puke). I might even buy stock in your company. However, given the stomach bug going around my kid’s school, I’m buying stock in OxyClean and Febreeze.

PS- To the imbecile who designed the crib bumpers that came with the crib bedding set: What is heaven’s name made you think it was a good idea to have 1 MILLION ties to affix them to the crib?! When they are covered in Domino’s pizza puke, it’s 1am, and you’re trying not to wake the sibling sleeping nearby while your husband bathes the toddler, a person can come *this close* to ripping them right off the freakin’ crib rails!
