The Black Beans

We took Porgie to a birthday party on Saturday. She had a fabulous time playing and eating cake. After the party, we stopped by Whole Foods and did our weekly grocery shopping. Being the lazy people that we are, we bought Porgie some black bean salad from the food bar for dinner.

Overall, it seemed like a really great day. Unfortunately, the good vibe did not last long. After eating about half of the black bean salad, Porgie started puking. It was very sad to see her little body bent over heaving. Black beans and soy milk were everywhere. Poor baby.

After we cleaned her up, she seemed like her normal self. She ran around playing with her toys, and she even ate a little more before bed.

Around 9:30, I heard Porgie gagging. I went into her room and found her curled up in a puddle of puke. She was soaked in vomit. It was on her pajamas, her hair, and her lovey. John and I worked together to clean the mess. Although Porgie whimpered while I cleaned her up, she didn't seem terribly upset. I read her a few stories and put her back to bed.

Today she is her normal self again. This makes me wonder whether Porgie was sick or the black bean salad was bad. Either way, I am steering clear of the food bar for a while.

Oh, poor thing! You & her. That sucks.
Maybe it was something from the party. Would the beans have made her sick that fast? Hmmm...that's just the worst.
