So not two thumbs up...
I can't believe I let this one slide. Did anyone catch this quote from Matthew McConaughey on his wife's labor experience?
"We found a great rhythm. Contractions started kicking in. I sat there with her, right between her legs. We got tribal on it, we danced to it! I was DJ-ing this Brazilian music. We were jamming! No painkiller, let's go!"
Okay, I have so many things to say, first and foremost being that I would have beat the living shit out of my husband if he'd attempted to "jam" at any point during my 12 hours of back labor. I did not want to dance or get tribal and I definitely didn't want to listen to anyone futzing around with the CD player while I pushed a head the size of a bowling ball down my vaginal canal. All I wanted was a hot bath and a goddamn epidural. More power to his woman for not giving him a big fat kick in the face while he was there between her legs (seriously, I would have killed the man) but if Matt had done anything other than stay supportive and (most importantly) on the other side of the room, he would never have emerged unscathed. (Actually I have no idea what he did during labor. All I remember is paaaaaaain.)
