Ricki Lake is famous for several things, but one of her more recent projects was to film the birth of her baby… in a bathtub… in her apartment… with a midwife. I’m not going to provide any social commentary here. (cough, cough, epidural!, cough, cough) To each, her own.
Last week, Handsome Hubby and I were watching TV with our son, Conner. A commercial came on for Dancing With The Stars. We don’t follow the show and this seemed like a long promo gearing up for the finale. The remaining “stars” were basically having a little smack-down about who was going to win.
Ricki Lake was one of the remaining contestants, looking straight into the camera, she said, “I gave birth, on my own, in my bathtub. That just shows you how driven I am!”
Conner said: “pfft. That just shows that she doesn’t have good time management skills.”
I almost peed my pants I was laughing so hard! The kid cracks me up!
It is his birthday today. He is 15 and I can’t believe how fast the time goes.
To hear about Conner’s wacky birth story, and how I almost had to have him at home (not by choice, I can assure you) and that the doctor left the delivery room needing a shower and some therapy…. click here.
Happy birthday Conner! I’m super proud of the man you’re becoming, and I love you more than words can say.
