After five children and a grandson, I thought I am one tough cookie when it comes to birthing and related baby "deliveries". How wrong I was! When one of my daughters called and said she was having premature contractions,I think my head spun a bit. I texted hubby and told him that our daughter was about to give birth ahead of schedule. Later, he said that he was so surprised by my text message that he dropped a box of bearings he was carrying. Anyway, to cut a long story short, the baby girl was delivered 3 weeks in advance. Yes! I have a new granddaughter!
