Tears

I know it's mean to laugh when your kid is crying, but sometimes I can't help it. Like today when Jayden came to me and said,
"Mom, I really wish I could see inside your body."
(me)"how would you do that?"
"Maybe you could eat me, except my eyeballs so then I can still see in your body."
(me) "don't you think that would hurt?"
"You can put me back together when I'm all done."
After many attempts to convince him that it wouldn't work, he just couldn't understand why I would refuse his offer and burst into tears saying, "just eat me mom!"

I was on a roll and made Kylie cry later that day also. She was asking if it was going to hurt when the baby came out. I told her that I wouldn't feel anything because they would give me medicine. She kept asking me about the medicine so I finally told her about the epidural. They say that you should answer honestly when they ask, but maybe I should have left out the fact that the needle they stick in your back is like a foot long. She immediately burst into an unconsolable sob and kept saying "I'm never ever going to have a baby!" I finally got her to calm down when I told her that she could adopt a baby instead (she then began into the questions of how the baby gets in your tummy, but I figured I had done enough damage for one day so we ended the conversation there). I really hope I haven't scarred her for life.

What a crack up - "just eat me mom!" Where did he come up with that one? Clever little guy!

I think that once Kylie goes into labor someday, she won't be worried about how long that epidural needle is. Don't worry I don't think there was any long term damage done.

Happy Birthday! Yeah, I was always grateful to be able to tell my boys that the Dr cut's the baby out of me...for some reason that sounds better than the other way...

Are you for real? that is the funniest thing I have heard in a while. "JUST EAT ME MOM!" I can't believe he was that into the idea that he cried!! Poor Kylie, Brayden freaked about the epidural part too but I told him that I LOVE it. :)

Happy late birthday! Your kids are so awesome. I love when you write about them! Never stop.

The best thing about the epi (well, second best next to the pain relief) is that you can't SEE it! I have no idea what the needle looked like, and I couldn't have cared less!
