Should Children Witness Childbirth?

Charlie with Grant and GraceBy:  Charlie Palmer, AKA, Paw Paw

Due to a power outage only one paramedic responded to the call. The house was very dark so the paramedic asked Kathleen a three year 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.  Heidi pushed and pushed and after a little while, Connor was born.

The paramedic lifted him by his little feet and spanked him on the bottom.  Connor began to cry.  The paramedic then thanked Kathleen for her help and asked the wide-eyed three year 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 butt again!”

If you don’t laugh at this one, there’s no hope for you.
