What is the first thought you had when you saw your newborn child for the first time?
The first moments of seeing your newborn after months of anticipating the birth, what did you think?
With my first child, all thought fled my mind. I was just dumbstruck by her beauty and the wonderful, indescribable feeling that this is my child. And I cried for about ten minutes, too.
With the second, he and I both barely escaped dying, and he had to be delivered by c-section. I was just relieved he was ok. And I counted every finger, every toe, every teeny tiny golden hair. And I was then JOYFUL; he was perfect!
With the third I was just ecstatic, amazed. She was gorgeous, too. And the doctor had said I could never conceive again- well ha, ha doc! I was thinking, what a miracle!
With my fourth, I was again relieved. He was premature, and looked like a tiny old man. But by golly, he was the biggest, healthiest premie they'd ever had in the ward! I just felt lucky as heck! And I still do.
When it comes to our newborns I think often we FEEL those precious moments, in a way mortal words simply fail us. And perhaps that is the way it is supposed to be.
I held my wife's hand and said something to the effect of "Holy cow. We did it. We made that."
...and then I cried like a little girl. True story.
"Seriously? I just pushed this kid out of me? What do I do with it now?"
Beautiful, I know. I was one of those people who took a few hours to really realize that she was MY baby and I made her. The first time I saw her I was just in shock from the labour and very, very overwhelmed.

What would you do if you were stuck at home with a toddler and a newborn all day every day?Being a housewife has it's perks, but let's be honest, I'd more than likely rip all of my hair out if it meant I could get one day of rest and not be constantly worried about my kids.

The question is pretty self-explanatory. The last movie I watched was Public Enemies, which I really liked, but I thought that it was a little bit to hollywoodistic, and that they tried to squeeze every drop out of every scene..So, which movie did you see most recently?

If you saw, Here comes Honey Boo Boo, what did you think?They obviously did not promote the go-go juice yet, but there were plenty of antics thusfare that were crazy. Redneck games, mud, teen pregnancy, ill-manners, almost illiterate, etc. What did you think of the premiere episode.
