We made it through the first week with both parents back to work. I am exhausted. I am glad it's over, even though it wasn't as bad as I thought it would be.
I have just enough energy to share the following exchange, which was the first conversation I had on Monday morning:
IT guy, walking by my office: "Hey, welcome back!"
Me: "Thanks, it's good to be back."
IT guy: "So, did you have a natural childbirth?"
Me, dumbfounded: "Do you mean...."
IT guy: "I mean, did you have a C-section, or the other way?"
(Please keep in mind that I barely know the IT guy.)
What I wanted to say: "Are you asking me if the baby came out of my VAGINA?"
Thankfully, no one else asked about my birthing experience this week.
But there's always next week, I guess.
