happy birthday, Kathryn Grace...

I forgot to write about Kathryn's birth...now the girls need me so I will just write a few things quick...



1. I was 32 years old when I had Kathryn, my 10th child.



2. My oldest child at that time was 13 years old.



3. The next oldest was 11, and the next 9. So Benjamin, my then-nine-year-old, had seven younger siblings.



4. Kathryn's first evening, she was fussy. And I had a migraine headache. I asked for pain reliever and they forgot. I asked again...and finally I buzzed the nurse, crying my eyes out, my head hurt so bad. And I sent Miss Kap to the nursery......while the nurse wheeled her out, I heard her say to another nurse, "I do NOT know what she is going to do when she gets home with this baby..." Well, Nurse, neither did I.....



And I survived....

Happy Birthday to Kathryn Grace! March is a wonderful time to be born. :)

I had my seventh child when I was 31. My oldest was then 14 and the youngest 20 months. I was not as brave as you and decided my body was tired.

Fun story but what a goofy nurse! A migraine has nothing to do with your ability or lack of to take care of your newborn! Hmph!
