Things are a lot different when you have a baby today than they were in my day. When you had a baby in my day no one got to hold the baby till you brought it home ~ Yesterday we all held Pacey Jo ~ the only rule was you had to wash your hands first. And when you stop and think about it.....in my day, no one held them other than the parents till the day you brought them home ~ and that day, everyone held them! So when did they decide that it was ok for everyone to hold them from the start? And who makes these decisions?
I dont think they give the dreaded enema anymore either ~ which I have to say is a good thing! I would have probably had more kids had it not been for that enema. About my 6th month I started dreading it.......and when I went in to have Ashley they put soap in the water! Maybe they always did and I just didnt see it, but when I seen her put that soap in I thought "oh No".
We only had visitors at certain times.....twice a day I think. Now....its all day long. Things do change dont they? Im not always sure its for the best.
We are having some cold weather today in Ohio ~ yesterday was so nice, and now its cold!! But it was nice last night when I had the bedroom window open and the electric blanket on ~ mmmm ~ its so nice to snuggle in those blankets!
Have a great day ~ catch ya later
