I got an email a week or so ago from Courtney at theBump.com asking me if I would be interested in covering a new offering for parents called The Bump Bring Your Baby Matinee. They’ve partnered with AMC Theatres in 68 theaters across the country to bring this event to the public.

Mr. Wench. Though it should be “Best Supporting Person Award”, since he isn’t acting (to my knowledge). This pregnancy, Mr. Wench has done a complete 180 as far as how he was with our second daughter’s birth. He was the one who brought up not circumcising, and fully supports my decision to nurse. He also brought up his concerns about my experience with the epidural last time, and stated that, should I decide to go natural, would fully support me in that attempt. Continue reading
