Today I had to renew my CPR/AED and my work generously allowed Francis to join in on the class. Francis figured that since we have a baby on the way, it might be a good idea to get some infant CPR training in.

Whenever I take these classes, I'm always reminded about how little I remember about these courses. No matter how many times you take it, there's always something that you're bound to forget. I guess that's why they make you renew it every 2 years.

I know it sounds really funny but when I was holding the baby doll, I got a little freaked out thinking about the fact that I'd be holding my own child in a little over 3 months. Sometimes when I get this stomach-turning feeling about being a mother, I try to divert my attention onto something else, but when you have a baby doll sitting in front of you through the entire class, it's a little hard not to think about it.

At least I have another 2 years before I have to do this again. Hopefully I'll never have to use these skills on Alana. My memory isn't exactly at its peak right now, darn hormones!
