We had our second son a few months back so this strip is more of a reflection of that time. And as stressful as it got it seemed a lot more calm the second time. I left for work with the feeling that today was going to be the day. I sit down and just as I start getting into the day's work the phone rings and my wife tells me we should go to the hospital. I gather my things, get home, meet my wife and older son (it was right before school was to begin), we get in the car (that we didn't have last time), I drive to the hospital (with my brand new driver's license), we check in, our son gets picked up by my sister-in-law and we're off to the delivery room.
OK, OK. I wasn't the one having the baby but the atmosphere was a lot less hectic and scary. Although at one point we had kind of a weird and creepy nurse.
Having two kids is definitely different than just one and surely there are plenty of misadventures ahead.
