Although thus far I’ve been limited to two 20 minute wheelchair privileges a day, I was given an extended pass to be wheeled down into the basement for their 2 hour New Mothers class. It was from 6:30-8:30pm and Milton attended with me. It was the last session in their six week series and we didn’t know what they would be discussing. As we wheeled our way down to room with able-bodied pregnant women, we were handed a baby doll (that looked nothing like us). 1) It was a baby girl 2) She had blue eyes 3) she had blonde hair. Milton obviously is not the father, and either am I.
Topic of the day: Infant Massage. Yes you read that correctly, we learned different techniques on how to massage our bundle of boy. We learned the heart technique along with milk the cow and the airplane. We can even help the baby get rid of gas. I would have much rather learned how to change a diaper, suggestions for breastfeeding etc… but Milton and I left with a certificate of completion in Infant Massage.
