Okay, I don’t know about you all, but I am just about all talked out regarding interventions, childbirth and childbirth locations. At least for now. We can find something else to scream at each other about next week.

In the spirit of Web Soup’s Palate Cleanser, I present to you…

Newborn. Clouded. Leopard. Cubs.

You’re welcome.

    I have decided that mine shall carry a plate of scones on its back and a little barrel full of coffee in its little cart.

    OR, it could carry a glove box and an extra set of pippette tips…decisions, decisions.
