  • We had to go to her first doctor's appointment when she was about five days old. I was SO nervous, oh my goodness. My mom had to come with me. We took her out to Wal-Mart and McDonald's when she was ten days old, that was her first real "outing".

  • She was two weeks and we went to church. Technically she went out before then because I was a single mom and full time college student, so when she was a week old we had to load her up in the car and she rode up to my college because my mom had to give me a ride to class (I wasn't allowed to drive yet) and I took her in to show my class really quickly and nurse her in the restroom. Other than that, we waited until she was 2 weeks because it was flu season in Michigan.

  • One week and we went to dinner with our entire family. I got some gasps from some older women in the bathroom who asked me how old she was. DH was home on leave from Iraq and I wasn't going to be wasting any time sitting around the house.

  • Less than a week. He was born on May 30th, had first doctors appointment on June 3rd, which was I think two days after we got home. Then a few days later we all went to Babies R Us.

  • I had my third child around eleven at night, I left the hospital the next day with him around noon and had to go straight to wal-mart because we were not at all prepared for his arrival ,due to extreme procrastination. So his first outing, he was about thirteen hours old. At the time I thought nothing of it, looking at it now that sounds horrible!
