Alex McCord and Simon van Kempen: Little Kids, Big City
A self-described "Momoir" (or Dadoir), Little Kids, Big City recounts Alex & Simon's journey in Big Apple parenting. Read about how they fell in love, the triumphs and travails of raising children, and oh, Simon's little accident during Alex's labor:
“Once he was finally out of my body, I experienced a tsunami of endorphins that was almost orgasmic, and I understand completely the stories other women have written about ecstatic birth. Simon was sitting behind me at the point of birth, and later when we untangled ourselves he discovered he’d actually ejaculated though hadn’t felt any of the normal lead-up to that. It may seem distasteful to some, and definitely neither of us was thinking of sex at the time, but with the rush of emotion and my lower nerve endings going crazy, it’s not too far a stretch to say that it’s a profound experience.”
