Happy Labor Day!

The day is set aside in honor of the social and economic achievements of workers.

Maybe it is time for an update. Labor Day should be a day when women and men remember all of the heavy breathing, screaming, and writhing pain they endured during childbirth. That’s definitely worth a day off from work.

Thank goodness, both of my Pitocin-induced labors were intense and lasted only a few hours. I also didn’t shy away from the epidural. Even with drugs, there was plenty of hard work on my part. Just ask Ken if he thought his right hand would ever recover from my tight squeeze.
