Our Enormous Balls

This is the brainchild of a Facebook conversation between myself, the fabulous woman behind Thoughts From A Doula. She had commented about her unique requirements for a rental car: "Happy I could find a last minute sitter and a rental car with backseats big enough to fit my balls and gear!"

A friend replied: "The 12 year old boy that resides inside of me just giggled."

Colleen agreed: "I know! So did the 17 year old boys at the rental place who had to measure the doors to backseat to see if 'my balls' would fit! LOL!"

And I chimed in: "I'm seeing classic bumper sticker potential: 'Doulas Do It With Enormous Balls'."

By the next day, an entire line was set up, thanks to Colleen as well as Kelly Book, Tricia Fitzgerald and Amy Robinson Owen Doula. Check out all the gear! Didn't the designer do a kickass job? I know I need a babydoll T, tote bag and, of course, a sticker, at the very least!

And with that, I'm off for a few days, as I'm finally visiting some friends in Connecticut! Hope everyone out there gets to enjoy some warm spring weather.


  1. I love it!!! Will you be up in your old neck of the woods? Any chance you'll be down on the shoreline/Greater New Haven area?

  2. Hey! I'll be mostly in the Storrs (UCONN) and Hartford areas, but we shall see . . . I wish my time wasn't so limited!

  3. LMAO...I have a few doula friends to whom I'm passing this on.

    Love it.

  4. I love it! But to be honest, would I be shameless enough to wear it? *blush*

  5. My doula motto was always "walk softly and carry a big ball" :) I love these!

  6. I love this!! Too funny. I think you should also start a line of birth balls called "Enormous Balls"...

  7. I SO want one of those hats! And I agree with Rebecca, you should start a line of birth balls called "Enormous Balls" - that would be hilariously effective ;)

    I wanted to let you know that I gave your blog an award! Its called the sunshine award, because I feel like your blog spreads a little bit of sunshine on the world wide web.

    You can check it out, and pass it on to other bloggers here :

  8. Total stranger here but HUGE fan of the enormous balls. I LOVE IT & will be buying for sure

  9. My own line of birth balls . . . intriguing thought! :O)

    And thanks Cheryl! That totally did brighten up my day.
