One Year, Less Some Hours, Mercifully Forgotten

One year ago tonight, I was in labour. I had been in labour for, oh, 18 hours or thereabouts. I would remain in labour for another 18 hours.

Thankfully, I’ve blanked most of it out.

30+ hours BEFORE arrival of the WonderBaby. Note ginormousness. Also note deluded smile, unique to women who mistakenly believe that it will all be over soon, and that effort of pushing a being the size of a prize-winning pumpkin through nether regions will be entirely manageable.

Tomorrow… tomorrow is for remembering the joy.

(That is – after a very exciting blogradio debate on feminism with Julie, hosted by Kristen!

After that joy, the birthday joy will be indulged.)
