Hard to believe, but I wasn't on any drugs whatsoever when the following things happened:
- During labor with Jackson, I swear that the video camera was mocking me. Seriously, the red light on the camera was making fun of me in my then-labor position and I could not make it be quiet.
- To hearing the slightest sound of people talking during a contraction, I remember wanting to focus on them with all the power that was in me and vaporize them. I then remember thinking, "That's not so nice. I'd better not look at them. I think I'd miss them later." It never dawned on me that I didn't actually have the power to vaporize someone just by looking at them.
- During Bennett's labor, I could not figure out how all time, space and motion could be so altered that a normal five step walk could take a year- yes, a full 365 days. I then thought, "I wish I had taken physics in high school. I bet there's an equation to help me figure this out."
Of course, this mom tells her story a little more, ahem, colorfully than I would (I honestly never remember even thinking curse words) I could not help getting the biggest laugh of my week over her realism.
