It was late at night and Heidi, who was expecting her second child, was home alone with her 3-year old daughter Kathleen. When Heidi started going into labor, she called “911.”
Due to a power outage at the time, only one paramedic responded to the call.
The house was very, very dark so the paramedic asked Kathleen 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 his bottom. Connor began to cry.
The paramedic then thanked Kathleen for her help, and asked the wide-eyed 3-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 him again!”
