As I type this shortly after lunch, I would have still been in labour 16 years ago today. Contractions began at 2 am so I was driven to hospital where they declared me dilated enough to remain in hospital, but it would still be hours before the baby was born. 🎉🎂
The emergency c-sections happened around 4 pm. My blubbery son got stuck in my pelvis. The doctor said “I gotta push him back up” which meant he pushed him back up and you really don’t want to visualize this but it’s ok because I had a lovely epidural. 😶
So up he was pushed back into my belly and then he cut me open to remove the boy who promptly peed on him. 😀
I wasn’t traumatized enough though because two and a half years later the girl child was born the same way.
So now I have a 16 year old kid who wants to, and can, learn to drive. 🚙
I will be eating cake today. I deserve cake today. Maybe I’ll even have two pieces. 😀
Happy birthday my boy. ❤️🎁🎈🍰
