Do you think you're a Super Woman? Here's a test - could you deliver a baby and serve a turkey dinner 2 - 3 hours later? Paula Thomas shown with her new daughter Lexi accomplished this feat. Can you believe it! This lady put the Christmas turkey in the oven while having contractions. When the contractions were 3 minutes apart, at 12:35 p.m., she asked her husband to take her to the hospital. She delivered a beautiful 7 lb. 7 oz. baby girl, Lexie, at 1:45 p.m., and by 3:00 p.m. she was home basting the turkey. Now who's super woman? She gets my vote.
Paula has 3 other children, Caitlin and Gabby, both six, and Reece who is three. Paula said, "I really wanted my Christmas dinner - I was starving." LMAO! After 8 hours of labor and giving birth to a 7 lb. 13 oz baby girl, I was stitched from one end to the other. I sat on a doughnut for weeks. I didn't want to walk let alone fix a turkey dinner. I was too busy moaning over my breast feeling like bricks and trying to figure out how I was going to raise my infant daughter. The only person getting food in my house was my daugher you can believe that shit.
This lady gives super woman a new meaning. I hope mom and baby are doing well, but there is no turkey on the face of the earth that would have made me leave my hospital bed and new daughter. My husband would have been at my mom's wrapping up a plate of turkey and the trimmings so he could bring it to me at the hospital, lol. He wouldn't have seen a golden brown turkey on a platter or a heaping helping of mashed potatoes and gravy for months.
Woman are such amazing creatures. I may be a little biased because I am one, but seriously we hold it down. There is nothing that we can't do, and we will be running this country in the near future. What man could accomplish this? I love what Barack Obama said about Michelle Obama, "My wife does everything that I do except she does it in high heels". I love it. What do you think of this super mom? We would love to hear from you.
