Crazy how time flies, eh? I didn't know you had a c-sect. did you have that with the rest?

Stacey said...

Yep,all of my deliveries were C-sections.

LOL! I love your response to question 23 about it being natural. I totally agree, it would be quite unnatural for a baby to come out of someone's nose!!! :)

Cute post!

You have a fantastic memory for details. I could only answer about half of those questions. Course at my age what can you expect.... it's been 39 years.

I love your response to the natural vs c- section question. I never had a c-section, but I was annoyed by that being the opposite of natural.

Off soap box now ;)

So fun! This is a tag I actually havent seen! :)

I agree with everybody about #23.. I also hate when people say did you have it "Naturally" of with drugs.. Like I'm not in a *cool club* or something if I decide to have an epidural...

PLEEEEASSSE! Some people. Isn't childbirth an amazing this no matter how it is delivered??

Ann Marie said...
