There are a few things about being an OBGYN's wife that make me laugh and I thought I would share.
1. My house is filled with "light reading" about the female anatomy. (It apparently makes for good bathroom reading:)
2. We got a package in the mail a few weeks ago for Chris and I asked him what it was. His reply..."Oh I think it is my uterus" (I didn't know you could mail order a uterus now days)
3. My little Ty and his imagination found the mail order uterus and decides, it is now his parrot while he plays pirates.
4. The reps. that sent the uterus sent one more a week later. I didn't even open the package, I placed the box and the "parrot" where Chris could take it to the clinic where it belongs the next day.
5. There are still two uterus models in the back seat of Chris' car. (makes for good conversation when you are taking a counselor from Relief Society home)
6. I love the stories about deliveries. My favorite was when Chris delivered a 24 week baby and had to catch it football style as it was flying over his right shoulder. (That still makes me laugh)

I'm constantly asked how I feel about being an OBGYN's wife. Honestly I think it is pretty cool, he gets see new life come into this world just about every day. What could be better?

(Maybe to be done with residency but that will come. )

OK, this totally made me laugh out loud. Too funny! It'll be interesting one day when Ty realizes what the "parrot" he always played with really was. I love it!

Ha! That made me laugh, hard! Yes, every time I go to an appointment I think about OBGYN's wives. I have a friend who doesn't have a uterus...could you send her your extra???

I can totally agree with it all. As for playing with uterus', Ryan had a plastic specilum from med school and Ayden thought it made a perfect gun!! I too get the "how do you like being an ob's wife, isn't that weird?" Glad we are in this together!!

I'm the wife of an OBGYN - have been for over 25 years. And I don't find it funny at all. I find it vulnerable and difficult to not think about what he sees everyday and how it influences how he sees me.
