stupid pee

A few weeks ago, Taylor woke up in the middle of the night to use the bathroom.  For some reason, I have a hard time falling back asleep once I’m awake, no matter what time it is.  So, I was wide awake at 3:00 am.  I picked up my phone and began scrolling through facebook status updates to pass the time.  I came upon the status update from Rachel and the 20 comments that followed on whether you should use the phrase “peed my pants” or “peed IN my pants”.  It was rather humorous.  Then when I woke up at 5:30, I thought to myself “Crap, I used ‘peed my pants’ in the birth story I wrote for Rachel”.  So I then commented thusly on her wall to learn that she was in fact editing my story when she posed the question.  I was a little embarrassed at my poor grammar, but what can I say, I watched WAY too much Billy Madison back in middle school.

But maybe it wasn’t so bad after all because the phrase made it through the editing process before being posted on the Pregnancy and Newborn Magazine Birth Day Blog.

So I think you should check it out.  And while you’re there, you should read the three other wonderful stories written by friends….and keep checking back for more fun reads every Monday and Wednesday.

The birth of Taylor Grace by me

The birth of Rosie Mae by Rachel

The birth of Sophia by Neely

The birth of Lohi by Ryann

It’s good stuff.

  1. Hooray! Yay for awesome friends who birthed awesomely and wrote about it!
    Also, it was not poor grammar—the jury’s still out on which phrase is correct (I GUESS.). That’s why I posed the question!

    P.S. Everyone who reads Dorothy’s blog—if you have a birth story you want to share at pnmag.com, send it to me! rachel@pnmag.com

  2. Billy Madison is good times. Grammar, schmammar. Maybe an alternative- instead of peed my pants, say, “It made me pee my pants.” Just a thought. Well, I have to go, I just peed my pants.

  3. Dude I have to ask how you know Rachel?! I have been following her blog forever I feel like and it cracks me up that y’all know each other! ❤

    • It’s like knowing someone famous, isn’t it? We went to PC together and were next door neighbors for all 3 years of seminary. Now we vacation together every summer.

      I feel cool by association.
