Favorite Quote of the Day

Today JD and I had our tour of the birthing unit at the hospital. On this tour, we had a ... hmm... rough-around-the-edges tour guide and she said something that surprised me, but I'll always remember.

"Being in labor is like smoking a joint. You will get the munchies."

Seriously? Seriously...who says that!?

Even though it's been a couple years since I've been in labor, I must say that it is NOTHING like smoking a joint, and the LAST thing on my mind was food.

Unfortunately, it has been a really long time since I've smoked a joint. However, I did have 2 children in the past 5 years and here's what I can tell you... AJ, the youngest, it was easy and didn't really take all that long. After I was hooked up to all the machines and I looked like that guy from the Spiderman movie w/all the wires, I just went to bed. With Darby though, I was there for a long time and I had put some granola bars in my bag and I got to sneak a couple of bites b/c those ice chips don't do shit for you!!

Kat - what does AJ stand for?

Maybe that is why those crazy nurses were asking if I wanted a sandwich or anything from the kitchen after I had Marissa. After being woke up in the middle of the night to have her I just wanted to get back to sleep!!

I don't remember thinking about food.....but Ern did, he ate 2 of my hospital meals while I was in labor.
Such a life for the daddy. haha
