I don't mean to alarm you...

Two years ago.

On June 4th, 2004, Sue had a doctors appointment and she was told that "nothing would happen anytime soon. We'll see you in two weeks." I was scheduled to play a solo Sunday morning, June 6th, and had been working to get it polished up. On June 5th, we had been out late for dinner at a friends place and came home to watch the overtime of the Stanley Cup Finals. After the game was over, Sue got up and went to the washroom. I started falling asleep, I remember thinking that Sue was taking FOREVER. "What on earth is she doing in there?" A minute later, she came out and crawled into bed. "I don't mean to alarm you, but I think my water broke."

How was that NOT supposed to alarm me!?

A little over 12 hours later, we had a daughter.

I don't mean to alarm you, but I think I have a two year old.

Laura likes us to recount the story of her birth as well as Lucas' and Darcy's. We seem to leave that part out though!

We begin where Grandpa H. calls us on Sunday morning and we all load in the van for Windsor.

I find that whenever my kids have their birthdays, I re-live the day they were born. Kolina's birth is a blur, as I was under a general anaethetic at the time, but Dylan's birth is much clearer. And I treasure the memories. Happy Birthday Darcy!
