To All the Expectant Mothers:

A lot of people seem to be pregnant this time of year: KeriAnn, Julie, 2 girls at work, another girl in our church and probably some other people who don't know it yet (Kari? Sarah? Karyn?...Me?). Doubtful.

Anyway, some of you may have forgotten what the birthing process is actually like. Thankfully, I always have this video to go back to. Even though I'm with a bunch of first graders on this trip, viewer discretion is advised.

What is this lady talking about? "Now those chains around the baby's legs do not hurt the baby ok?" Not's actually not ok.

"Well there's a little blood when you have babies...that's just how it goes."

No thank you. I'm going to wait just a little longer until someone cranks something out of my body with chains.

But to all my pregnant friends: good luck.

Oh, dear. I can't believe they let first graders watch that! Maybe it is a good thing I'm not pregnant, ha ha.

KeriAnn said...

Lydnsey, you might get punched in the face when i see you next.

just a warning.


Kari said...

you would.

Mary-Anne said...

That's even worse!!!! Oh my heck! How about the guy just pulling the baby calf around like that...I really can't believe they let first graders watch that...I don't think I would want my 7 year old to see that? Wow.

KeriAnn said...

The first time I watched this I was kind of borderline annoyed. Then this time, I couldn't stop laughing.

Everything about this post is sick and wrong, including your commentary.

I don't know why I'm laughing, but you still may get a punch. you don't mess with Mama bears.

This video is both delightful and educational. Kenny will be pleased to know it has removed my desire to start a family so soon. ;)

Not even going to attempt pressing play to this video. The real experience of labor is all to fresh and clear in my did not involve chains though:)

To the woman He said, "I will greatly multiply your pain in childbirth, in pain you will bring forth children.

Hey Andrew and Lyndsey,
Happy 1st Anniversary today! Hope you two were able to enjoy the weekend together and celebrate! May God bless you this coming year!!! =) See you at the game Lyndsey.

You are too funny, girl. It is pretty amazing they take 1st graders to see something like this, and then prohibit so many other things that wouldn't give you nightmares. Maybe this should be the 6th-7th grade field trip!
