Well, and I sighed and took a deep breath...and I told my sweet 5yo all about that day.
mhmm

9/11 is why my midwife chose to practice at Camp LeJeune. It was her way of giving back.

9/11 is why DH decided without a doubt, sitting in band class and terrified that his brother... a Marine who had an office in the pentagon... was in that part of the building... decided to follow in his brothers footsteps (later, finding out the president was in Florida, his family was very relieved to find out that BIL was down there as well, as his job at the time was with Marine One... the helicopter that transports the president)

9/11 was a horrible horrible thing, but it changed SO many peoples lives for the better afterward because the choices they made because of it. As happens with almost any horrible event.

We taught DS about it last year, during DHs 2 week leave home from Kuwait/Iraq... and plan on teaching DD about it tomorrow (if I'm not in labor) I think it is very important for them to understand, especially since DH, BIL and my own brother are all military... as well as my little sister who is joining the Navy and myself, former Army (pre-9/11)


But that said... as I already said I would LOVE to have my daughter tomorrow because it is my mothers second birthday. I think it would be a great birthday gift to her... and because of moms remission birthday the day has already taken on a whole new meaning of life going on for us.

(Sorry for typing so much, I just wore myself out cleaning the livingroom... lol so Im tired and rambly... but it gave me the awesome idea to make my mom a second-birthday cake!)

DDCC...

My DS will be 7 tomorrow, and while I felt sorry almost for the babies born on 09/11/2001 because they would share that day with one of the most tragic in history, then 2 years later i deliver my own child on that very day. I think it was God's way of telling me to embrace and celebrate while mourning the loved ones lost.

Dddc -

Please turn a day like 9.11 into a day a birth and joy. I couldn't see anything better than making a day that once reminded us of death, to now be about birth and new beginnings

with love, bailey...

This made me smile since my ds#1 nearly made his appearance on 6/6/06 and it was all over the news that people in the US were rescheduling sections, inductions, etc to avoid it. My water had broken early on 6/5 and I was tired, I would have been ok with 6/6, but alas he came 6/7. Now here we are on 9/11, it is early, might have a baby today

Anyone feel like they are getting labor started??
