For some reason I feel compelled to share my awkwardness with you guys so today that comes in the form of a podcast.

Jason and I are relatively new parents with a lot to say on the matter so we decided to experiment with making a podcast about how our lives have changed since the addition of our darling Dylan. We come at parenting from different perspectives that I think will make for good conversations and, occasionally, debates.

In this episode we introduce ourselves and our family, talk about our history as a couple and our decision to have a baby, relive the terrifying first few days of Dylan’s life when we didn’t know what we were doing, and delve into incredibly important matters like what kind of bathing suit I will be wearing this summer and why I don’t wear short ruffled skirts while doing laundry.

(I warn you that the first few minutes are cringe-worthy as we get into a groove but if you can survive them it does pick up steam!)

It was great to hear your voices for about 48 minutes and I feel i know all there is to know…. And then some. You have an engaging and soothing radio voice, Courtney, and it was wonderful listening!

For me this is a relatively easy qusoeitn, but has a pretty complex answer. The specialty I have actually looked forward to working with is OB/GYN. I find that the ability of a woman’s body to produce a child, endure the amount of abuse it takes during a pregnancy, and the amount of pain endured during delivery is amazing. The joy of being able to be present as life enters the world is truly one of the greatest moments in life. To me that would be the best possible option. I also would love working in the operating room with a surgeon. I have experienced the OR quite a few times, and have been on both sides of the table. I have to say I would love to work with any surgeon in the OR except for Orthopedics. The reason behind that is the surgery’s are pretty brutal when it comes to the skeletal system. Having been in the OR with an Orthopedic surgeon and seeing the use of the saws, hammers and other heavy equipment in order to perform the surgery just sends chills up my spine. I know that type of surgery is not for me. I think my favorite surgeries have to be that of the abdominal cavity. The specialties that I would least like to work for are few, and for simple reasons. Pediatrics is not a specialty for me since I have four children of my own. My Aunt is a neonatal nurse practitioner and I followed her in high school and saw the good, the bad, and the ugly so I can honestly say I could not emotionally handle that type of position. Podiatry is also an area I could not see myself working. The reason behind this is pretty silly, but here goes, I very much dislike other peoples feet especially if they are not well kept. I know in the medical field you will encounter feet on a daily basis, but I could not mainly work with feet on an everyday basis. My last specialty is Orthopedics for the reasons I noted above about the barbaric nature of the surgeries and treatments for the musculoskeletal system. Its just not for me.
