My Fantastic Idea for a New Business

I had a flash of inspiration the other day. You know what I would be so good at? I could totally do this for a living. I could come to the hospital with you when you're in labor and having your baby. My job would be to play appropriate music to get things going, to create a 'mood'. Picture this in your mind:

It's your big day, and you're in the hospital. You're laboring in the bed all attached to monitors. Your husband is coaching you through the Lamaze breathing. When a really hard contraction hits, you see me peek up from the foot of your bed blasting Is there Anyone out there cause it's getting harder and harder to breathe! How cool would that be?

Or, say you had an epidural.... there's always Pink Floyd's Comfortably Numb.

I could fit a song to any situation. What about a C section? I've got you covered: Cheryl Crow's The First Cut is the Deepest. I would be there with you through it all.

Fully dilated and ready to go? Salt and Peppa fits the bill with Push It.

Baby's crowning? A little Johnny Cash will set the mood.... "And it burns, burns, burns, the Ring of Fire! The Ring of Fire!"

How about that critical postpartum recovery time? Nothing would be better than Natalie Inbruglia's I'm Torn.

Think about it gals. This experience could be yours. Wouldn't that be AWESOME?!

You have entirely too much time on your hands....How do you think of these things? Maybe- you need a television...? I love your brain!

Tia Juana said...

Okay, you are totally worth your price! However, what would you play when my milk comes in and I can nurse 20 babies with the amount of it? Seriously. That's how I make my millions - selling milk, not music!

You are very good. VERY GOOD indeed!

I'll have to let Nina know.

Great idea, but no thank you. I like it nice and quiet. I don't scream, cuss, or freak out. I just do quiet.
HOwever, that is really, really, funny. I know some ladies who might go for it!:O)

My favorite is the "Ring of Fire"! That one totally fits since I am a non epidural girl!

Jodi said...

Oh---too funny! Where do you come up with this stuff? The ring of fire was my fav too!

And your costume!!!!! You look SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO good!!!!! What a great pix!

Or, how about from the baby's point of view? "How do I get there from here?" I believe is Deanna Carter.

You are L-amaze-ing :)

I can't even hear those songs especially the tearing one without shivering. I think I'll stick with Jay eating a hamburger and saying, "Just push that button again".

Kimberly said...

You've got a gift, Missy, embrace it. :-)

Tell your tia juana friend about this...

They send breast milk to Africa for children with aids... really is making a difference.

Hey, Earlgir, you've won the hostess apron from my latest give-away! Email me at poopiebrowneyes@yahoo.com with your address so I can send it too you. Congratulations!

Oooooo, so so tempting. You know, the "crowning" perfection of the whole experience would be if it was taking place in The Treehouse don't you think?!? That would be awesome. :)

Oh, let's not forget when the labor starts to get really interesting. A little Tears for Fears may be appropriate ... Shout! Shout! Let it all out!...
