Moms was in labor for 54 hours. That is what it is and can't be helped. The hospital did all they could for her, made her comfortable, monitored the labor, fed her, provided pain killers when appropriate if she asked, etc. And they gave hubby a cot. A nice gesture, but not entirely comfortable. I bet he was a good guy, solicitous, concerned for his wife and his impending newborn. Along the way, he might have made a comment or three about how the cot was uncomfortable. It happens. She obviously loves the guy and doesn't seem to have judgment problems, so he can't really be too big a douchbag.

54 hours probably included a lot of talking and chatting and hand holding. Complaining about a discomfort during that time doesn't automatically relegate all the other admirable care-giving husband behavior to insignificance.

I'm not lecturing Momsurroundedbyboys; she knows this already. I'm just pointing out that we know it too.

Now, if I'm wrong, and the only thing he did for those 54 hours was complain about his cot issues, well, then I guess he is a douchebag. But he didn't, so it's all good.

The only thing he really remembers aside from the cot, was that sudden rush of responsibility after the first kid was born and wasn't breathing well, was rushed out of the room with a flood of doctors and nurses. I looked at husband and said, "go with him."

But he also worked at that hospital so my memory differs greatly from his -- he kinda did what he always does. Number 1 child will be 19 soon -- how time flies...

But what if she's a really good cook? Think ahead, dude. Consider

I have many other talents, I'm sure are equally redeeming

My number 1 will be 19 soon too. Maybe we should introduce them...

He's has enough girls chasing him. In school he's known as "dark and mysterious". (eye roll)
