In the meantime

Well, I seem to have no time to blog.  I think it may have something to do with the fact that I have a full-time job, a 3-month old baby, and husband.  I wanted to have the birth story written out to share, but it is still very much a work in progress.  I'll keep working on it.  

But I don't want to wait until I have that story finished to share other stories and tidbits of my life.  So here is a quick one:

Babies sometimes remind me of other things...

such as an elf or a frog or a bird...or a French Pea!

My compliments to Jean Claude!

What about a birth story?

A girl I know had a baby recently, and I noticed that I was much more interested in the nitty-gritty details of her labor and delivery than I have been before.  I’m all-ears when it comes to a pregnant woman’s plight or a new mom’s tales.  Since having my own experience to relate it to, stories that include phrases like “completely effaced,” “ready to push,” and “she was exhausted” take on a whole new meaning.  I almost tear up when I think about Sean’s birth.

I haven’t shared much about Sean’s birth on this blog; do you want to know how it went?  I don’t want to share details if that isn’t your thing, and don’t worry, I won’t be offended if you’d rather not know. 

If you are having trouble deciding if you want to know or not, I’ll give you some hints to help you make your decision:

  •          I had Sean at a hospital,
  •          I had him naturally (well, I had a little outside intervention, but no epidural),
  •          I think of the experience fondly, and
  •          I’m so proud of myself for having that sweet little boy!

So, let me know! :)
