not me.

My husband did not put my pink slippers on my feet during labor because he thought it would be a funny picture for my blog. Nope, not him (I had to sneak that one in)!

I did not have a really bad epidural which paralyzed me from the neck down for three hours while in labor during which the baby's heart rate and my blood pressure dropped significantly. As this drama unfolded, it seemed as if every nurse on the floor jumped out of the cabinets & hallways like a SWAT team to stabilize us. Nope, not me!

I did not sweep the floors and vacuum the house the same evening I came home from the hospital after delivering baby Ruby the day before. Nope, not me!

I did not fall in love with my husband even more after giving birth to our new little daughter. Nope, not me!

I do not think Ruby is the best and most beautiful baby ever! Nope, not me!
