HypnoBirthing Conversation

Tim: Hey when we listen to the relaxation CD and it asks you to think of a soothing and relaxing color, what do you think of?

Kirsten: Green, why?

Tim: Oh I was just curious

Kirsten: What color do you think of?

Tim: (with a very serious face—all jokes aside) I think of a pale pastel blushy plum color.

Kirsten: (laughing)

Tim: Why are you laughing?

Kirsten: I don’t know sweetie you’re just cute. I say simple “green” and you say “pale pastel blushy plum” that’s all.

Tim: Well… I happen to like the color plum.

Kirsten: Good, I’m glad. I like the color green.

Tim cracks me up. Would you have ever guessed that he likes the color “plum?” Not me. In fact, the only colors you would find in his closet are black, brown, gray and navy blue. Ohhh… the conversations we’ve found ourselves in due to this Hypno-Birthing class. I think someone is just begging for a "pale pastel blushy plum" shirt for Christmas :)

So, after reading about this hypnobirthing idea of labor you will have to let me know how it worked for you and if you felt much pain. Ashlynn came completely natural (not by choice) and it is not something I want to experience again. The word pain doesn't even describe how I felt. Interesting . . .

He is funny! I've got to hear more about this hypnobirthing..sounds interesting! No, we are staying in AZ for Xmas...too many sick people in UT...and it is dangerous for babies to get sick before they are 2 months. So, here we are! We will be coming in if you are not in labor...we will have to do lunch! Or if you have had your baby...I will bring lunch to you!
