Taking Our Show On The Road

As Rick and I always like to say, no one can trash a hotel room like we can. It’s quite amazing, really. One of those phenomena that you’d like to have documented with a hidden camera. You know how on nature channels they’ll show a flower from seed to bloom using time lapsed photography. It would be interesting to see just how it happens. Maybe one day…

In the meantime, I feel the need to share with everyone the fact that we’ve taken our destructive abilities to a new (lower?) level. As we found out recently during the birth of our first child, we can trash a hospital room with the best of them.

This should be no surprise to me. I’ve trashed rooms as nice as those found at the Venetian in Vegas to the guest rooms of loved ones across the country. Besides, I packed enough stuff as if I were going on a weeklong vacation. Which it kind of turned out to be if you call 36 hours of hard labor and 96 hours of c-section recovery time a vacation.

Something did feel a little wrong about trashing a hospital room. But at the same time, I guess it’s just as well for our son to see what he was born into as soon as possible.

    Aww... how cute. You made the baby feel right at home from the get go.

    Your room wasn't all that trashed! Give yourself a break. What? Couldn't you find time to pick-up in between contractions? Ha, ha
