Should children witness childbirth?

Due to a power outage, only one paramedic responded to the call.
The house was very dark so the paramedic asked Kathleen, a 3-yr old girl,
to hold a flashlight high over her mommy so he could see while he helped
deliver the baby.Very diligently, Kathleen did as she was asked.Mommy pushed and pushed and after a little while, Connor was born.
The paramedic lifted him by his little feet and spanked him on his bottom.
Connor began to cry.The paramedic then thanked Kathleen for her help and asked the wide-eyed 3-yr
old what she thought about what she had just witnessed.Kathleen quickly responded, 'He shouldn't have crawled in there in the first place,
smack his ass again!'

Tomorrow is the big day

Sam My daughter, who as you know, got married last year, is due to have her first baby tomorrow at 09-10 (C section) We am looking after the pup ( Sophie 1 year old yesterday) for a couple of weeks , that will keep me fit walking her each day for an Hour. I guess that my boating season will be shortened as I expect My wife will want to be involved with looking after the baby :o(( rather than being on the boat for weeks at a time. So I guess that I must plan some more trips and deliveries to keep me busy.

Yes I`m "worried a little" that all will be well but there is nothing that I can do, so I can`t really worry about it but a small concern creeps in now and again. Sam is very laid back and unconcerned about it and takes it all in her stride so 10-00 on Monday we will all know how its gone :o)) I guess that there will be much celebrating in the household tomorrow?
I suppose I could get the dog a life jacket and take her down to the boat with me. Mmmm might be a bit of a pain, maybe when she is older and better behaved!
