The Most Nervous Moment In My Life......





The kiddos were just born a few hours earlier. Angi was still recuperating from the C-section. I was scared as shit. Am I prepared for this? YES. Everything is set. Car seats? Check! Bassinet? Check! Mental stability? Aaaawwwww SHIT!

Here are their VERY FIRST pictures ever taken.

TIME: 3:18 P.M.
WEIGHT: 3 pounds, 13 oz.

Wedding? PIECE OF CAKE! Funerals? A STROLL IN THE PARK! Beatings? BRING IT ON! Screaming? LOVE IT! Divorce talk? A BLAST!

All compared to what I was feeling as the doctor was ELBOW (literally) deep into Angi, my wife of (presently) almost 6 years, trying to get Angelina out of her (home), as the team of nurses are working on William, new to the world, she was a bit more of a complication. The Doctor struggled (his words), to get her out. She was squished (literally) against the placenta, and 3 excruciatingly looooong minutes later, she came out, with anther team working on her. When I finally got to see them (after they came out, I saw them for about one half of a minute at most, and Angi did not see them AT ALL), I got an up close view, when I first took these pictures. I took a few of him, visited him for a minute (NOT because he was the boy, but because he was first, IF only by 3 minutes), and took a few of her, visited with her, and went back and forth for a bit. Angi, did not get to see them until the next day at 5:30 p.m..

I would rather be busted by the cops again, OR ANYTHING, for that matter, than feel what I was feeling at the moment when I saw a Doctor elbow deep into my wife's abdomen, tugging like hell on the child yet to be born, known later as PISSY SISSY.

UUUMMMM has miss pissy sissy done something to upset the daddy? or are you just remembering the helplessness you felt, at that point. Poor Angi, it sucks not to be able to see your babies after caring, and carrying, them for so long. It's Monday how ya doing????
