What was in the news when your other kids were born?

Hey ladies, so I was reading a thread from November that gave me the idea to ask this question. I always think that there are major events that happen in the news when one of my kids is born... or do I just notice them more because my babies were born on those days? Here's mine:

DS #1- The D.C. sniper began shooting people at random gas stations back east. 10/2/02

DS #2- Michael Jackson showed up to court wearing his pajamas! 3/10/05

DD- The body of Kaylee Anthony was discovered. 12/11/08

What happened in the news on the day(s) that your kid(s) was born?

December 28, 2006 is my daughters birthday and that was around the same time Saddam Hussein was executed. Ironically enough a boy I went to high school with was one of the soldiers who found him in the hole that he was hiding in.

Was a little preoccupied at the time, so I didn't pay much attention to the news--- but checking the news archives, it looks like it was a slow news day around the world. Smile All I have was Souter announcing his pending retirement from the USSC, and British Airways apologizing for omitting Israel from its map. The map thing actually caused a multi-day kerfluffle, so I remember hearing about that at the time, but until I looked it up, I couldn't have told you when it happened. Smile

Nicholas was born at 11:08 on June 24th 2009

June 25th Michael Jackson died. It was all over the news that morning when I turned on the TV at the hospital.

hmm yeah. i definitely didnt read the paper that day. or probably once that entire summer Biggrin

from now on though, i think it would be cool to snip the front page of a newspaper on my babies' bdays to save for their box!

Hmm... upon searching, all I got was "Missing Milwaukee Boys Found Dead in Lagoon " and "10-Year-Old Girl's Body in Neighbor's Closet ".:eek:

Let's hope this baby has a better "day" :confused:

@ Carolyn, I always wanted to do that, too... but you just are so busy with the hospital and new baby to think about making DH run out and get a paper lol! Thank God for the internet, we can just print something off I guess!
