I completely agree that it starts young!!! I am definitely already feeding my kids info about my values. Like that babies eat from the breast and not the bottle. That's what I learned when I was little, seeing my mom nurse my brother. I didn't know any better! And I am sure, Amy, that your students *will* remember you, and that you had a positive influence on them. I have no doubr about it.

Yeah definately easier for me the 2nd time around! 1st: was admitted to the hospital at 2 am with only 2 cm dilation, water broke. After 6 hours was induced with pitocin, pushing was 45 mins.
