On Tuesday night, Michael and I attended the first of our “Baby University” classes at Clear Lake Hospital. The class is a 6-week, all-in-one overview of labor and delivery, prenatal care, breastfeeding, infant care and hospital procedures.
I think it will be a good class, even if it’s necessarily a little X-rated!
Michael and I wanted to get to the first class 15 minutes early, per our thorough reading of the instructions handout they mailed us. We had the room number and floor memorized, and dutifully brought our two pillow for Lamaze class.
Too bad neither of us read in what building the classes were being held.
Instead of being 15 minutes early, we were about 10 minutes LATE, and had to walk shamefaced into a room full of happy couples who had the pleasure of deciding whether they were smarter or just more punctual than we were.
The only seats left were at the front and center of the room, right in front of the huge video screen. You can start laughing now, because we got the best view in the house of our first X-rated labor and delivery video.
I thought Michael was going to faint when he realized what we were about to have to watch. Poor guy. He does not do well with blood, the explaining of medical procedures, and seeing females in pain.
I am very happy to report, however, that Mr. Franco did not faint and did great during the video. I saw him squirm once or twice, but he was very brave and took it like a man. I’m very proud of him!
It may have helped that we have an understanding that he is not required to stand or view anywhere below the equator during the delivery of Baby Franco if he doesn’t want to.
