Last week we had our Lamaze class reunion – yep three months later you all come back with you babies – it really is pretty cool to see all the new babies an hear all the labor stories.
However Claudio and his dad-in-crime Mike were chatting loudly in the hall and were shushed by another classes teacher because they were going to scare the parents-to-be with their horror stories. Lol —- listen I WISH I had attended a reunion BEFORE giving birth. Our stories were real, raw and honest – nothing like those 1980s videos they show where the lady didn’t need an epidural but sure needed a good Brazilian wax!
Don’t know what to expect in labor? Just sit in on our reunion and you’ll go in like a pro! Know what to ask for, what you’ll get away with with the nurses and of course, yes ladies – the dreaded truth – all first time moms will have some tearing. Sorry to break it to you.
Best line of the evening? ” My flower now has more petals.”
So anyways – it was good to see everyone – and even though there were some scary moments – we all agreed it was worth it to have these beautiful loving babies in our arms.
So here are the before an after shots – pretty cool huh?
And yes, If you’re contemplating Lamaze class – it’s worth every dollar. You learn a few new tips, get to prepare with your baby daddy, and make new friends along the way! Jess and I still hang out once a week! (If you want the name of our teacher here in NYC – email me and I’ll shoot you her information!)
But if you really want your money’s worth – find out when the prior classes reunion is – and crash that party.
