Shield Your Eyes

If you are skweemish, easily offended or any level of prudish, please turn away. This post is not for you. For the rest of us, this is just straight awesome.

October is Gynecological Awareness month. Seriously. I have no idea how I've lived all these years without this knowledge. But, there are many perks to having a husband who works at a hospital. This kind of information is one of them.

I wonder how exactly you celebrate for Gynecological Awareness. Do you have cake? Maybe you hug an OBGYN. Hugs are nice. Much nicer than pelvic exams. Is there a ribbon you wear? And what color is it, peach? And how do you keep a straight face when someone asks you what your ribbon stands for? I think I might be more gynecologically confused than aware. No?

As a means of raising funds to support all things pertaining to a woman's nether regions, Todd's hospital is having a quilt auction. The quilts are currently on display so everyone can take a peek and make a bid. Todd has promised to buy this one (his favorite) for my mom. So she can hang it in her entry:

Yes, you are correct. This is a quilted version of the reproductive system. Mmm hmm. I wasn't kidding when I said this was straight awesome. Just imagine it's grandeur when my mom opens it on Christmas morning. I bet she cries.

My favorite part of this quilt is the ribbon. I'm a big fan of accessories, I've just never considered putting them over my fallopian tubes. Now I know that it looks good. Don't you agree?

Let me know if you want to try and out-bid Todd for this quilt. A little healthy competition is good for fundraising. Anything for Gynecological Awareness month, right?

Holy Smokes!!!!!
I wish you knew the story of Paul's pencil drawing of this system for Chloe and Bethany's education. And, I think Bethany and her wit really come from you and I just used my similar system to incubate. She is your child.

Please tell me Todd wins. It's for a good cause , so if he is not taking it seriously remind him he has 3 daughters.

Is that a head on the top and little shoes poking out the bottom?

I am dying laughing. Seriously. Seriously?! Seriously! First off, my mom needs that quilt. So take my $5 donated for the next 10 years for our investment, and roll that over to the girl-parts quilt. Does it beat Todd's bid? Seriously?! Who makes a quilt like that? I am dying!
