Sunday Hike: Harrybrooke Park

May 3, 2009 - Posted by Bobby - No Comments »

Railroad Tracks at Harrybrooke Park

This is an awesome park and I have no idea how we found it JUST now…

So no, the park isn’t railroad tracks, but they run just to the side of it and I couldn’t resist playing on them just a little bit.

Prepared Childbirth: Bobby’s Journal #1

January 9, 2009 - Posted by Bobby - No Comments »

I’m going to write a series of journal entries regarding my experiences with all of these classes that Wendi has me taking. From newborn care and prepared birthing to lactation, some of the things I have learned are so etched in my mind I feel the only way I can ever sleep again at night is by writing them down and sharing some of the humour I was able to find throughout.

Journal #1
Infant Care Class

“How hard can be honey, You pop the critter out and we do what comes naturally?” Those were the famous last words of the mortal idiot that is me.

The class was at the hospital, just outside the doors of the maternity ward in a cold dingy conference room that smelt of gauze and sterility. There were about 6 couples in the room and one jolly nurse leading the bunch. Maternity nurses are eternally jolly aren’t they? Maybe something about seeing new life all day makes you have hope or not think about your own eventual demise…who knows, back to the story. We were late, I know, surprise! We seem to be late often now that my wife has to pee twice everytime we need to leave the house.

We walked in at the perfect time, BATH TIME!

Who the hell knew that there was so much involved in bathing a newborn? If you did, thanks for not telling me, I may have reconsidered the whole deal. So the jolly nurse lady is pretend bathing the plastic newborn doll when all of the sudden she mentions the umbilical cord. What?

I said, “Wait, I thought we already cut that thing off???”
Jolly nurse lady replies, “oh, you have so much to learn!” and has a chuckle at my expense.

So from her explanation, my child will have this tree limb looking extension coming out of the mid-belly for a week…um, bucket please, I need to hurl. What’s even better is that you have to clean the thing with particular precision and alcohol swabs around the base where it meets the belly skin. Once again, puke is at the base of my tongue knocking on the doors of my lips to open up.

As she describes bathing the newborn my mind suddenly snaps back to reality and the fact that my wife can’t even see blood without gagging so I have no clue how she is going to handle this. I slowly turn my head to gauge her facial expression. Too late, her eyes are LOCKED on mine and she leans in to whisper in my ear, “You are in charge of bath time, Daddy”. Shit! Are you serious? I’ve been with Wendi long enough to know when she’s serious and when she’s just temporarily insane (happens often), and she was serious with this one. I ask no questions, I just accept it and I start taking notes cause this just got officially added to my job title – “Bath Time Director”

It’s 1:38a.m.

June 29, 2008 - Posted by Bobby - No Comments »

It’s 1:38a.m. and I can’t sleep. Wendi is at a bachelorette party in Boston and I met up at coworker’s place tonight for dinner and drinks. On the way home I was restless and decided to take a walk down at the green in town. I snapped a couple shots:

New-Milford-Tank-At-1am
The infamous tank on the New Milford green. I had to hold the shutter open for 15 seconds on this one, it was pitch black out.

Subaru-Impreza-at-1am
Wendi’s car under the street lights.
