If you would like to read my ... um... somewhat rant like version of birthing my children you can go HERE. Apparently it is very funny. For everyone else. Oh child bearing, how you mock me.

Thanks for tagging me Amanda!


hey, just curious, what happens to your blog rating when you type vaginal? ;-) Remember, mine went down when I typed Fart.
I love getting to know more about you through these, but have to say, I was grateful I didn't get this one-- wrong time of year to reminisce about childbirth (is there a right time?)
I love the above comment! Made me laugh out loud. Anyways, this was a good meme.

My b-day is April 30th, too :)
Just saw your comment over on I'mBeingHeldHostage's site. Glad to drop by for a visit. Cute meme. 12 hours of labor? Yuck! Love his name. Very cute :).

Happy to have dropped in.
