That’s Right, I’m Not Over It!


I’m STILL EXCITED! Here it is, the “Top Pick” page in the July RT! (Can you tell I learned how to use my birthday scanner?)

And what IS it with teenagers? I showed the magazine to my 14-year-old and he rolled his eyes and said, yay. You know, yay, like who cares. I gave birth to him! AND IT WAS PAINFUL! Drugs–too little, too late, and worse THERE WERE WINDOW WASHERS OUTSIDE MY HOSPITAL WINDOW WHEN I WAS PUSHING!!!! Where is the gratitude??


  1. Cheryl S. says:

    Yea, Suzanne! It’s beautiful! Congratulations. :bananadance:
    I hope to read The Beast Within soon.

  2. Suzanne says:

    Thanks, Cheryl!!!

  3. Katie says:

    Top Pick!!!!!!!! Whooohooooo!!!!!

    And he’ll just get more self-centered as the teen years wear on. Believe me.

  4. Margery Scott says:

    How cool is that to have a Top Pick!!!!:bananadance:
    LOL on your son’s reaction. Don’t you know yet if it doesn’t concern him directly, it just isn’t important?

  5. BJ Deese says:

    WTG on being a top pick! That is cool news.

    OMG on the window washers!!! :shocked:

  6. Jill says:

    Window washers … that sucks, LOL! And hey, I have a teenager too. All she does is roll her eyes at everything I say. Giving me a complex. 😯

  7. Kelly says:

    Yea! (In a good way.)How cool is that? Looks great, Suzanne! All I remember during my labor were lots of people, and I was so young I didn’t have the guts to tell them to get the heck out, but then after the 15th hour it didn’t matter anymore who was there with my legs wide. I just wanted that baby out! 😉

  8. Robyn says:

    Way to go on the top July pick!!! Doing the happy dance, I bet.:bananadance:

  9. Mary says:

    Oh, forget him. Kids are a pain. Enjoy your good fortune. I once took my daughter on a dream vacation to NYC, and all she could do was complain she missed her 15 year old boyfriend. :hissyfit: Next time I left her at home with my bible thumping mother–payback is hell.:bananadance:

  10. Amy K. says:

    He’ll regret it when he’s 30. Or maybe 40, since he’s a he. In the meantime…:fryingpan:

    Congrats on the Top Pick! You deserve to still be excited. :yes:

  11. Tori says:

    You go, girl!!!:bananadance:

  12. Carol says:

    CONGRATULATIONS, Suzanne! That’s great news! :bananadance:

  13. Trace says:

    He won’t be proud of you until he reaches his 20’s at least. Then he won’t be able to stop talking about you! And he’ll use it to get chicks, too. He’ll probably carry your books around in his ride as bait!

    Congrats, Suzanne!! We’re proud of you!!:heart:

  14. Melissa Marsh says:

    Ooh, Suzanne, this is SOOO COOL! I don’t have the July copy of RT yet, but I can’t wait to get it and take a look! CONGRATS TO YOU!!! This calls for dancing bananas…:bananadance::bananadance::bananadance:

  15. Jordan says:

    Congrats!!! Perhaps you should have shared birth ‘photos’ with him.:rotfl:

  16. Lis says:

    Congrats on the RT top pick!!

  17. Danica says:

    Congrats Suzanne!! And uh, you were coherent enough to realize that there were window washers out your window when you were pushing? 😯 You definitely needed more drugs. :mrgreen:

  18. Michelle says:

    Way to go on the free ad in RT! You Top Pick girl, you! :thumbsup:

  19. kacey says:

    Suzanne! How great! I can’t wait for this PAX series to start!

    As for your child…two things wrong 1) teen 2) male :fryingpan:

  20. mary beth says:

    Woo Hoo Suzanne. Notice I did not say Yay!

  21. Sasha says:

    I’m bringing mY July issue to Reno with me, (cuz my review of GH is in it!) and I’m getting you to sign that page for me! :bananadance:

  22. Gina says:

    Congrats! :thumbsup:

    I had a similar reaction yesterday when I told my father about my column.

    “That’s good … now how much you gonna make?”

    I was like “… I’m not telling you!” :fryingpan:

  23. Crystal* says:


    I don’t have that uterine bond thing going on, but I am HAPPY FOR YOU! It’s absolutely delicious.
    It never fails to amaze me I could push such an ungrateful being out of my body. But then when they want something…I think we all know the end of that sentence.

    But back to the important stuff. You are great! Congratulations!

  24. Sylvia Day says:

    Congratulations!!! :bananadance:

  25. gena showalter says:

    Congrats!! That’s awesome. Not about the window washers, but the Top Pick.

  26. Patricia says:

    Congratulations!!! :bananadance:

    I only gave birth once. That was enough

  27. Lynn says:

    WOO HOO on that Top Pick! WTG! :bananadance::bananadance::bananadance: Window washers? Ouch! I didn’t have to deal with window washers, but I closed my eyes for a second when I was having my son, and when I opened them again my room was full of people I didn’t know! :yuck:

  28. Teresa H says:
