Five Alarm Birth

Sunday morning, I woke up with irregular contractions that hovered between five and seven minutes apart. Since my eldest daughter wasn't born until twenty-four hours after my water broke, we weren't in a hurry to get to the hospital.

Show and Tell

I have two kids myself, but the best birth story I know is the one I saw in my own second-grade classroom a few years back. One day this little girl, Erica, a very bright, very out-going kid, takes her turn and waddles up to the front of the class with a pillow stuffed under her sweater. She holds up a snapshot of an infant. "This is Luke, my baby brother, and I'm going to tell you about his birthday."
