I started the dishwahser and held to the counter for support as I was reminded again why I was up so early. The time passed and I ironed my husbands shirts and folded toddler clothes fresh from the dryer. I heard the herald of robins as they addressed the first glimmer of light at 4:30. The sun rose reddish pink in the spring sky and I could begin to see the branches on the dogwood tree dance in the breeze.
At 7:00 I called in with my report telling those who answered my call that I would be in at 9:00 but they insisted that I come earlier. So I woke my husband and he drove me there at 7:40. I waited and worried that the day would be a long one. I had been here before for a 26 hour ordeal and I had only been awake since 2:00. At 8:15 we were ready to go into the room. Then it was over.
I heard the lullabye play over the intercom announcing the arrival of a new baby. MY BABY! happy 33rd birthday son! Pin It Now!
