CPR For Me...

Yesterday, Mom and Dad were kind enough to take a course in infant CPR. Father left the class and remarked that it's awful to want to be really good at a skill that you never want to have to be called upon to use. They both did really well and were only MILDLY creeped out by their infant CPR mannikan (Before you give me any guff....YES, that is indeed how they spell it.)

LOOK at this thing!!! And you thought the ADULT CPR mannikans were creepy?! This baby was freaky as hell!! If I look ANYTHING like this, I will not fault my parents for sending me right back for a refund of some kind.

Though I am told that it doesn't work this way, and that my father should stop thinking that it does.


Mom and Dad's instructor was good. She was professional, funny, and was pretty good at this "teaching" thing.

They both came away with a pretty good understanding of how to perform infant CPR on me, or one of my little friends. Or even a stranger's kid to REALLY up the awkward/terror factor. They also came away with a good understanding that the people in the CPR videos were NOT hired for their acting chops....

Lots of catching up to do....it's gonna be a busy week on The Dot's blog! 

A special shout-out to Rachel for her enthusiasm in regards to the blog the other night. It was thrilling to hear someone who enjoys the blog so much telling others about it...If you're reading this right now, TELL YOUR FRIENDS! Tell publishers!!! My goal is to have a book deal lined up immediately upon my exit from the womb. It is my first priority! 

Actually, it is my second priority, after immediately being swaddled, and bundled into an adorable hat.

Good for you guys! We took the same class at a different hospital. REmember, no blind throat sweeps, OK.

I don't know what hospital you took your course at, but Mom and Dad have never heard of "Blind Throat Sweeps"

Sweet Lord....they don't know what they're doing! THEY'RE GONNA GIVE ME BLIND THROAT SWEEPS! I'M TERRIFIED OF THOSE, AND I DON'T EVEN KNOW WHAT THEY ARE!!!!!
