12 Years ago today

I gave birth to my first baby. I was 20 years old. We were scheduled to be induced so went to the hospital at 7:am. By 8:30, I was all hooked up and the pitocin was dripping. At 11:45am, the nurse came in and asked if I was feeling the contractions. I wasn't. Jimmy and I had been joking around and watching tv. She upped the dosage of the pitocin and my water broke. Of course, then I started feeling the contractions. And oh were they painful! At 12:27pm, after three healthy pushes, my beautiful baby boy was born. Matlock was on the tv. LOL I had no drugs to help with the pain. Well at least not until afterwards. LOL

Now I have a 12 year old adolescent with a major attitude problem on the verge of puberty. Heaven help me! LOL

Happy Birthday to your boy!

The attitude does get better. It has to, because otherwise we'd eventually either kick them out or move out ourselves.
