Ah, I Remember It Well....

T’was an upside down world, When I was uncurled, They counted my fingers ‘n toes And sucked out my nose, It was humiliating to say the least, I looked like a ‘lil red squirmin’ beast. Doctor hollered out “it’s a boy!” Mama sighed “crap!” Daddy said “Joy!” Pappy told Mama “it was money well spent”, Till he saw.. that I was ..incontinent. All the nurses smiling and I didn’t know why, Till three days later they said good by. I was a handsome young fellow though a little short, And I sure am glad Mama didn’t abort. Ole Doc Perry wished us all good luck, And Daddy brought me home in the pickup truck. Ah yes...I remember it well...

Great memories but you never remembered a thing! I'm glad you are here too Robert, I think that birth is such a special miracle when you think how short a time it takes for us to form. You told the story beautifully :)

So funny, Robert. You went all the way back to the birthing process and gave my quite a laugh. Great entry for the Baby Boo contest! Love, Carolyn
