|Happy Birthday Gomer AND Adolpha!|
Sure enough on this day in 2006 Adolpha arrived to complete our family. Yup. Two babies, same day, just two years apart. Nope. We didn't schedule them, they both came naturally on the same day. I'd like to think they're pretty rare and special.
All day long random hospital staff kept stopping in my room while I labored. "Are you the lady giving birth two years later to the day?" they kept asking me.
In between my breathing (hee hee hee hee) I would say, "Yes! Could you please close the door on your way out? My business is hanging out here."
Just when I was starting to feel like a rock star my brother sent me an email to bring me back down to earth. He attached an article about a woman who had given birth earlier that week to her third child on the same day. It said something to the effect of: I know you think you're something special and you think you're hot shit, but I found this article on Yahoo's front page this morning and you're nothing compared to this lady. It looks like you'll need to go for 4 kids if you want to top her.
We all know I'm not an over achiever, so of course I stopped after two.
