Here's my entry:

When I first gave birth to Girlie Girl, my MIL stayed with us for two v-e-r-y long weeks. She's from a different culture and sees things in very different ways. One day, I was taking a nap in my room when she came in and turned off my air conditioner and took away my glass of ice water. She then said, "Do you want to get artiritis?" Apparently, she thinks that if my body gets cold in any way right after I gave birth, I would develop arthritis! It was over 90 degrees outside! What I would have liked to have said is, "WTH?", but I didn't.

I wish I could have just handed her this.

This promotion is to celebrate the book launch of Body, Soul, and Baby: A Doctor's Guide to the Complete Pregnancy Experience, From Preconception to Postpartum.

Oh, You've gotta love MILs and their "helpful" advice. If my MIL had stayed with us for 2 weeks after my baby was born I would have gone insane.
