    I was in labor. It started at 6:00 am on July 4th,,,,my water broke and my ex hubby took me to the hospital. I was thinking I'd be having a Fourth of July baby!

    17 hours later, still no baby.

    She didn't come until 1:05 am on July 5th. I didn't know if I was going to have a boy or a girl, so it was such a great surprise when I saw my baby girl for the first time!

    It was the happiest day of my life, and changed EVERYTHING.

    Being a parent is the best blessing a person can have.

    Yep, if you do any good at parenting you have to straighten your act up.

    59 years ago on this date (4th of July) my mother went into labor with me. I didn't show up until 48 hours later. Seems I've been late for everything in my lifetime. My mother was surprised that I turned out to be such a wonderful, sweet, pretty baby that slept all night every night and never shit in my diapers. My Dad thought I was so bright he called me Sun. Perfect people like me, are usually perfect from birth... Just saying.

    Yes it is a blessing, ours was exciting for the first one,the wife's water broke when we were on 101 south heading to San Diego, what a trooper, the baby held off till we arrived at Scripps Memorial Hospital,our first of four, every year for four years,it was a boy,and oh joy,I am thinking one pair of jeans n sneaks til he grows out of them, this is great!

    Second, a girl, oh shit, designer diapers, new shoes every 30 days and never the same jammies in a 7 day period.

    Third, a boy, yeah! another pair of jeans n sneaks till he grows out of them, again!

    fourth, a girl, oh shit, ditto number two, maybe if we can talk her into hand-me-downs, which didn't work btw, and an attitude, you'd think the 'queen of Sheba' was in the house.

    Well that's it, they are all a blessing, and the best part, all the 'chit' we told them about when very young and they didn't believe,they believe. :clap2: unfortunately that wasn't 15 years ago, the reverse, 51
