After a jam packed day of running errands and hitting the gym yesterday, I left the house around 3pm to go to a birth. I got home from the birth at 5:30 this morning. Of course I haven't been able to get more than a couple of hours of sleep thanks to Thing 1 and Thing 2.
The birth went well. It was another VBAC (yipee!) I will write more about it after I've had some rest (and after I finally post the rest of the first VBAC story I started writing about).
It doesn't look like I'll be resting anytime soon. I'm supposed to be doing a belly cast for my darling friend Leigh today, and then heading up North to see my Mother in law. I have an all day Birthing from Within class I am supposed to attend tomorrow so the Things and I are gonna spend the night at her place. My Mother in law lives 90 minutes away but they haven't seen her in a while and she's one of the few people who can handle all four of the Things for more than a couple of hours. I'm so tired, I'm not sure if I can make the drive. I wonder if I should just wake up at the crack of dawn and drive up there in the morning. Ugh, that probably won't work. Maybe I should just get off of the computer and make Thing 1 and 2 take a nap with me.
Yep, that sounds like the perfect plan.

I have google alert me when VBAC is mentioned because I own a VBAC blog: VBACAdventure. You have an amazing job. I would love to become a doula after I am done having children.

Kendra, I LOVE my job. It makes my heart happy.
You don't have to wait til you're done having children to become a doula (unless you want to). I know lots of doulas who just take breaks to have babies. :-)
Thanks for sending me a link to your blog. I love supporting VBAC mamas!
