Being in class again

After almost twenty years of being in school, I'd like to think that I'm a pretty good student- not in terms of grades or anything but more the whole knowing what it means to be a student thing, i.e. paying attention, taking notes, asking questions, etc. But when it comes to the classes we've been taking in preparation for Baby's arrival, it's a whole other ballgame man... Oh, don't get me wrong, we're both trying to be really good parent-students: following the instructions to fold the swaddling blanket down the correct corner, holding the pretend baby the right way to practice burping, nodding appreciatively when we're told the different colours and textures that poop comes in, etc.

But really, can't there be a more scintillating way of teaching the class such that neither one of us feels like falling asleep an hour into the class, or something that keeps us from checking our watches every 15 minutes?...
