Never Wordless Wednesday: Repurposing Easter Buckets


So things had been going rather well concerning pregnancy symptoms.  I had been overly tired, had a few headaches and was really hungry, but other than that things were great.  Until a few days ago.  I woke up with a really dry feeling in my mouth.  Took a few sips of water.  And then found myself running for the bathroom.  Kaelyn, my 3 year old, ran in and was rubbing my back and got me a cool wash cloth for my head.  She told me that she’d take care of me because I always take care of her.  Sometimes kiddos say the sweetest things.  Well of course I couldn’t just crawl back into bed…. not with a 19 month old, 3 year old, and 5 year old that needed to get to kindergarten.  And so I grabbed the Easter bucket Willow had used for the Easter egg hunt at our church on Saturday and decided to give it a quick repurposing.  As you can see the chick was less than thrilled… 

Easter Bucket = Morning Sickness Car Puke Bucket

Oh the joys of pregnancy!  Of course they are all worth it once that little bundle of joy gets here, but in the mean time I need to keep reminding myself that this too shall pass.

    Great idea! As a fellow pregnant woman, I can relate!!

    You are killing me with this bucket. I had terrible morning sickness the first trimester with all of my kids. It was 10 times worse with the boys than when I had my girl. I hope this morning sickness ends soon for you. *Hugs* congrats lady- I am so excited for you.

    how funny, great way to get good use out of the Easter bucket. I had 4 kids and never had any sickness with them at all. I was lucky.

    Kids say and do the funniest things sometimes, never a dull moment around here. They do keep you busy, can’t call in sick from being a parent! My wife was lucky during her two pregnancies…no morning sickness.

    “This too shall pass” that has been my mantra too lately. I am 9.5 weeks and counting down till the first trimester and morning sickness is done!

    Oh you poor thing. Hopefully it doesn’t last to long!

  7. Hey, if it works, right?! lol Good thing you had it… That could have been a messy ride.
