Six years ago at about this time, I wasn't getting ready to attend the Malice Domestic Conference.
I was also 33 weeks pregnant and had just been told by my doctor that I was already dilating and he forbid me to travel.
Heartbroken, I contacted the Malice folks and canceled my trip. I also stopped mowing the lawn, running the vacuum, and carrying heavy groceries.
It was one of those middle-of-the-night emergencies that had me praying my most fervent prayers, but Sophie was strong and feisty and is now the apple of my eye.
Did any of your children (human or four-legged) surprise you with how they arrived?
