On top of all that I just hit 40.

Old guys with young kids RULE

My wife and I blew the curve at our hospital when my son was born....

I was 34 and she was 32---but where we live tends to have a "younger" new parent population...and there was no one over 22 in the Maternity Ward with us (even though it was full--I mean, packed to the gills, no extra room, get out early full)...

They made us stay the full 48 hours, but no one told us why...but I figured it was for several reasons..

Funny thing was, we never called the nurses, they always came to check on us (you keep the little ones with you at our hospital, unless you request for them to be sent t the nursery--we didn't, we kept him with us--I stayed on a pull out chair).....our nurse told us we were the only one's not to call every half our..

We figured that once we left we were on our own, so we may as well figure it out now....

I will say there was a lot of drama going on in that hall...I'm guessing some of those new moms had no idea what they were getting into
