The Quick Soap Opera Recap

April 15, 2013

I can’t believe that in my last post, I was awaiting the arrival of Baby Bump and now Santiago is here – waking us up at night, sleeping all day, and peeing on everyone. In other words, he’s perfect and just as he should be. And being the mom of a newborn is exactly as I remembered it too. Sort of. Your mind has a funny way of blocking out the misery of the first few months of Newbornness by implanting iconic, movie moments in its place instead.

And since I haven’t the time right now to tell the story, I’ll do a quick soap opera recap. Like a soap opera,  sometimes there’s just no time to craft a beautifully written dialogue because there’s so much to catch the audience up on. You just gotta deliver the information and move on to the next storyline. So as a long time fan of General Hospital, if my life were a soap opera, my BFF would totally be Sam McCall and our talk today would sound like this:

SAM: Jen. Wow! Congrats on the new baby boy. Santiago Paulo was born on March 22 at 8lb. 1 oz and 20..5 inches, right? You look great but, gosh, Husband must have been worried when the planned c-setion had a few complications, huh?

ME: Yeah but the complications weren’t life threatening and we were home with the baby and his big sister in a few days.

So here’s what you should have walked away with in my soap opera conversation with Sam McCall:

  1. I had a baby a few weeks ago.
  2. The baby was a boy named Santiago.
  3. Husband is my husband.
  4. I had a few minor complicatations with a planned c-section but all went well.
  5. We have an older daughter.
  6. We’re home with our healthy kids and mom is doing well.
