Some good news for a change

Hi ladies. I hole this cheers you up and gives a little laugh.

Just posting to let you know that my daughter gave birth to a little boy yesterday (my 2nd grandson) weighing in at 7lb 4oz.

He was born in the kitchen, on a blanket on the floor.

I am pleased to say that I witnessed the birth from the floor and found the whole experience amazing.

I was birthing partner to her first but didn't see "The action bits"

Her husband and I are considering changing our careers and going into midwifery :)

What a good reason to fight this bugger of a disease.

Take care ladies. Love to all Irene xxx
