After having two kids myself- I find it incredibly uncomfortable to watch any show where someone is in labor or giving birth (especially if it’s real). My gut reaction is to change the channel, immediately. I can’t explain why I can’t watch it anymore, as when I was pregnant with Holden baby shows were pretty much ALL I watched- but I just can’t do it.
Until today. Now, I know it isn’t real- but I feel like watching Pam & Jim’s baby on “The Office” .. sort of be born- at least you saw the contraction part, was a huge step for me back to normalcy. Seriously, what crazy lady waits until TWO MINUTES APART to finally decide it might be time to go to the hospital?
Anyways.. getting off track a bit there.
Watching a new baby be born (whether it be a real or fake birth) takes me back to popping Parker out. One second it feels like FOREVER ago, and as soon as I see someone writhing in pain from contractions I get that uncomfortable sense of “oh.. i’ve been there”.. and I don’t want to be there. I’m still in that stage where I never ever want to go through the pain of childbirth ever again. It takes a long time to get past that.. well.. for sane people anyways.
Ugh, even more painful to watch is the horrible time in the hospital. Oh sure, during the day it was all rainbows and butterflies- nurses in and out catering to your every whim.. but the beds are not exactly what i’d call comfortable.. and when nighttime came babies turn into pod people and feel the urge to scream from that moment until dawn.
Yeah.. I don’t like reliving that moment in my head. This show, as much as I love it, is totally stressing me out.
Oh the joys of parenthood! Making even the most enjoyable shows extremely uncomfortable to watch. Yikes.

@WeberWriting Absolutely. It takes a bit of time and juggling but it is 100% doable. Just have to ignore the sanctimommies of the world
Don't feel bad for tossing frozen chicken strips in the oven and calling it dinner. Don't even feel bad if you don't turn them over. holdinholden.com/2016/05/shit…
To the piece of crap who broke into my car over the weekend- You think you found nothing of value to steal, but you actually took with you the nasty head cold my family has been passing around in that very vehicle for the past week. Enjoy, scumbag! xoxo, Germ Infested SUV

If anyone asks how I died, you can just go ahead and tell them "she was lured in by free pie in exchange for listening to 2nd graders screech Thanksgiving songs for 30 minutes"
