There's no going back now...
Last week we went to the hospital to tour the facilities where I will be giving birth. WHERE I WILL BE GIVING BIRTH!?! Ya' know it is one thing to watch the baby story on television, it is quite another to be standing at the foot of the bed where YOU will go through this experience. I was pretty freaked out. I know I will be fine (what is the other option right?) but WOW...

I also think that if more people had to go through a child birth preparation class before they actually got pregnant, there might be less people to actually go through with it. I of course would still want the little peanut, I am truly blessed. But I say that instead of sex education in high school, we just show the girls how child birth actually works. They would see all the stuff they don't tell you until your on birth's doorstep...I will spare you the details. Who knows, some youngsters might think twice.

Speaking of babies, what is up with McDonald's? They have the worst commercial right now with this adorable little baby who has all of these firsts, first step, first word and "of course a first french fry". GROSS. As if babies need a first fry. Nice marketing.
