Labor Day Defined

Labor Day is a day when your mother-in-law, your brother-in-law, your sister-in-law, your niece, and two of your nephews come to visit you.  They watch you closely every time you have a twinge or Braxton Hicks contraction; because,  you were due on August 30th.  All day long you are under the scrutiny   watchful eyes of your family...sixteen eyes to be exact.  Labor Day ends with no labor in sight and is followed by another week and a half of non-labor days.  Finally, two weeks after your due date, the doctor takes pity on you and induces labor.  A certain little miss refuses to come out because it's warmer inside.  This results in a 9/12 rather than 9/11 birthday. 
Happy Labor Day!

  1. I had a not so drawn out Labor Day story for my first little miss, two weeks early. Happy birthday to your daughter.


Hello! I love it when y'all talk back!

I read all the comments I receive. I answer as many as I can.

Right now, I'm healing from breast cancer surgery on October 20th and dealing with the side effects of chemotherapy. Please understand if I don't answer. This is all new to me.

I treasure your prayers and your comments.

If you have a question, be sure I can reach you by email or subscribe to the comments.

Be blessed!
