Warning this post may contain to much information of a vomitus nature. Yes I know that vomitus isn't a real word but I like it and it is my blog :). Consider yourself warned!! Also this post will contain no pictures as no one wants to see this!
So my eldest daughter who is 8 1/2 vomits a lot.  In the last 3 weeks or so we have had 3 episodes of her vomiting.  Let me just say that she is the worst when it comes to keeping it contained.  I have been projectile vomited on multiple times.  I do not handle this well. I do hope that she never takes up drinking because she doesn't handle puking to well.  If the Hubby is home it is his job, mostly because he would rather clean up 1 pile of puke rather than 2!  We are trying to figure out what causes this.  We usually lean towards dehydration which she seems to get dehydrated at the drop of a hat.  I am also wondering if emotion plays into her vomiting incidences.  School started 2 days ago and we are still in the thrill stage.  She seems to also have issues with eating to much junk.

So here is the point of this post.... Do you have any children that do this?  She is a very healthy child otherwise.  Any tips or advice would be great. We are starting a food journal for her, and we are going to start monitoring how much water she is drinking.
