Beyond Deweyville

Breeding, feeding, writing, reading, crafting, and photographing in Orange County, CA Where it has become a novelty to raise your own kids and mow your own grass (if you can afford some).

For your viewing pleasure, my friend Lindsey’s wonderful birth video.  She gave birth via c-section six years ago and wanted to do it differently this time.

I hope you enjoy it!

I’m going to give someone a genius business idea.  Are you paying attention you marketing whizzes that have just bought all my comments from Facebook? Here it goes: It’s called “Shhhh Shuttle”. You need a big van; safe car seats; a ton, I mean TON, of insurance; and a Mister Rogers like driver (read able to drive all night, won’t drink and drive, and won’t sell my baby to the highest bidder). This may be difficult to find. Parents can then call Mister Rogers to pick up their crying baby and drive it around for a few hours with all the other crying babies in the van, then bring it back home settled down.  I’ll be looking for the ad in OC Parents!

As long as my car thermometer continues to read 102F, we will act like it is summer.

What the heck, where have I been?

I’m down the street at Facebook’s house

I know, seriously, I can’t believe I gave them my info either

I did find my kindergarten best friend though

It’s been almost 30 years; we have some catching up to do
