A Little Concerned

After spending some time in traffic over the past week, I'm becoming concerned that the baby's first phrase is going to be "Why are you such a douche bag?"

Random aside - I once used the phrase "douche bag" while driving with my youngest sister, who was about 12 at the time. She asked what it meant, so I told her. And then, because I am my mother's daughter, I ended it with this comment. "Some people think that douching after having sex will prevent pregnancy, but that's not true." She asked to change the subject.

We had the first appointment with the OB this week. I've been seeing him for about 5 years, and he performed some surgery on me last year and then the D&C after the miscarriage, and he kept telling us how happy he was for us. Stuff like that are the reason I keep going back to him. We were talking about epidurals and he asked if I was going to want one. I asked if I could have two. He said "Good. I don't understand people who want natural childbirth. It's like having a natural root canal." Also why I love him.

Yes epidurals are a good thing. "Natural" childbirth is HIGHLY overrated.
And your child's first phrase will be "Let's go to Grandma's!"

absolutely. bring on the drugs! (medicinal drugs of course)

And your child's first phrase should be "Go EAGLES!" just because it would make Matt's head explode!

That story about your conversation with your younger sister could have come from a contemporary Diane Keaton movie.

"Go Yankees" as the baby's first phrase would not only make his head explode, but would send my normally reserved nephew screaming into the streets. Hmm. I think some quality time with great-auntie is in order!
