The delivery room is not a place for your other children.

Explained by Sukiesnow...

Apparently some moms have the idea that it's a great bonding experience for their other children to see and/or help with the delivery of their newest sibling....

I have to disagree. I have witnessed births with other kids around and it has been an amazing experience.

Some children have a tenuous hold on life, and should not be subject to human suffering.

A lot of people have a fear of the "White jacket" and I imagine small children would, too. Especially if you have memories of one giving you a couple of needles...

What are you talking about, every woman on Earth boasts about how much they suffered while giving birth, there is a reason that women lose some of their memory post birth, so they wont remember how bad it was and to want to get pregnant again.

You're right; there is something about childbirth that gets anesthesized in women's memories or something...most women swore to me: NEVEr AGAIN...but a couple of years later...there they are...pg again!

It's nature's way to trick women into reproducing. What stops families from having more kids is not usually pregnancy but rather being able to provide, raising kids is not easy or cheap.

Thankfully I am an only child. It’s good for some things.

Though once, going through family photos, I happened upon pictures my dad took of my birth. Could’ve gone without seeing those...

No, really, eh? And whenever I tried to peg down my mom for stories of my birth...she started looking shifty...and getting defensive... "Well, you know dear, we ALL took drugs in those days..."

So, tell me...what's the point of posts? Dental posts.

I had a "consult" with a dentist last week...after glancing in my mouth for 5 seconds...and speaking for 1 minute...he then charged me $85 bucks for it.

Check up? Ha. It was a specialist... A maliofacial (something like that) consult...which took all of 5 minutes...although saying 5 minutes would be exaggerating.
