Enjoy, had to share !!!
When I was a kid, I loved show-and-tell.So I always have a few sessions with mystudents. It helps them get over shynessand usually show-and-tell is pretty tame.Kids bring in pet turtles, model airplanes,
pictures of fish they catch, stuff like that.And I never, ever place any boundaries orlimitations on them. If they want to lug itin to school and talk about it, they'rewelcome to do so.
Well, one day this little girl, Erica, a verybright, very outgoing kid, takes her turnand waddles up to the front of the classwith a pillow stuffed under her sweater.
She holds up a snapshot of an infant."This is Luke, my baby brother, and I'mgoing to tell you about his birthday."
"First, Mom and Dad made him as a symbolof their love, and then Dad put a seed inmy Mom's stomach, and Luke grew in there.He ate for nine months through anumbrella cord."
She's standing there with her hands onthe pillow, and I'm trying not to laugh andwishing I had my camcorder with me.The kids are watching her in amazement.
"Then, about two Saturdays ago, my Momstarts saying and going, "Oh, Oh, Oh, Oh!"Erica puts a hand behind her back andgroans. "She walked around the house forlike an hour, "Oh, oh, oh!" (Now this kidis doing a hysterical duck walk and groaning.)
"My Dad called the middle wife. She deliversbabies, but she doesn't have a sign on thecar like the Domino's man.They got my Mom to lie down in bed like this.
(Then Erica lies down with her back againstthe wall.)
"And then, pop! My Mom had this bag ofwater she kept in there in case he gotthirsty, and it just blew up and spilled allover the bed, like psshhheew!' (This kidhas her legs spread with her little handsmimicking water flowing away.. It wastoo much!)
"Then the middle wife starts saying "push,push," and "breathe", breathe. They startedcounting, but never even got past ten. Then,all of a sudden, out comes my brother.
He was covered in yucky stuff that theyall said it was from Mom's play-center,(placenta) so there must be a lot of toysinside there.
"When he got out, the middle wife spankedhim for crawling up in there."
Then Erica stood up, took a big theatricalbow and returned to her seat.
I'm sure I applauded the loudest. Eversince then, when it's show-and-tell day,I bring my camcorder, just in case another"Middle Wife" comes along.
Now you have two choices....laugh and closethis page or pass this along to someoneelse to spread the laughs. I know what Idid!!!
Live every day as if it is your LAST chanceto make someone happy!!!! ( I do my very best)
