Lives of Doctor Wives: Bucket anyone?

Bucket anyone?

I just have to share this funny story with you all. Last night my husband was on call and on that evening there was a prenatal class being held and at the last minute he was handed a list of topics and was told he would be leading the class. That right there is funny to me (isn't it funny how we see our spouses so differently than others that don't live with them?) I know that my husband is totally capable and a super hard worker but will the man put his underwear in the hamper already.....so anyway, he called me and told me that, and I was shocked that they hadn't given him more time to prepare. I thought back to our prenatal class together when we were pregnant with Grant(#1) and how much we cut up with everyone and immediately, I flashed that that was how he was going to lead the class.
Well, he did great and obviously is super professional in circumstances like these. I asked him later how it went and he said, "I think the husbands were more scared than the wives, especially when I started talking about having an episiotomy and 2nd, 3rd, & 4th degree tears." He then ran down some of the other topics he talked about as if everything was fine and nothing exciting happened. At the time, I was at Menard's home improvement store and was telling him about the rebates I was getting and stuff, and then all of a sudden he says, "Oh yeah and a lady threw up." SCREEEEEEEEEECH...................huh what?
The things that seem sooooooo important to share to me seemed like no big deal to him. Men and women are so different. So I said what, he said "Yeah, she kinda looked pale when I was talking about some unpleasant topics, but she looked fine and then, all of a sudden she just barfed everywhere." Poor woman, I would have loved to been there to know what he had said before and after, like I said before, I see him saying something like - Need a bucket? I know he said nothing of the sort but isn't strange how our husbands are like two totally different people? The husband and father that lets the dog lick dinner off our two year old or can't remember to take his dishes to the sink and then there's the doctor that has people's lives in their hands everyday, and they are like Superman.......strange.

Haha! Sounds like Doctor mode kicked in! At least you have had a kid! Can you imagine if he'd been handed that and had never had a wife go through childbirth?

Ha ha that is hilarious - and even funnier that he thought it was no big deal... maybe we should leave him to doctoring and less teaching of birthing classes? Sometimes our doctors forget that not everyone has their stomachs for medical talk!

I believe (no offense to childless docs) but becoming a dad makes a man a better man and therefore a better physician.
And it amazes me everyday that my goof of a husband holds lives in his hands!
