With more penguins! ;) I think the translation was simply trying to convey excitement...it worked, lol...Who doesn't love a Bonus penguin??

Maegan, true. I'm so grateful for the penguins that I have. Any new penguins are pure bonus.

I'm taking comment moderation off for an hour or two. I fear I will regret this when the Ugg boot spammers get a whiff of this open thread.

Within 15 seconds of taking comment moderation off, some turd left a Gucci handbag spam comment.

Spammers make me itchy.

Still reading! I don't get to participate as much these days, Le Sigh.

One of my oldest friends was in early labor last time I talked to her. 2nd baby, 2nd planned natural birth, but if all goes well, first natural birth! She's planning an HBAC. I haven't heard anything in HOURS and I'm ITCHING to txt! I don't want to invade their space though, so, waiting. I was invited to doula but couldn't because of lack of childcare. This is KILLING MEEEEE.

Someday, someday. In any event, send her some positive vibes!!!!

Rebekah, your post made me wonder if being an on-demand childcare person for midwives and doulas wouldn't be a good home business. Though they never have enough cash as it is so maybe not. Hmm.

earlier this year an old hometown friend of my husband's was asking him about vbac resources (yes, him. apparently he has a reputation for being knowledgable about birth?). I am happy to report she had that vbac this week. :)
