    The 'Middle Wife' by an Anonymous 2nd grade teacher


    I've been teaching now for about fifteen years. I have two kids myself,
    but the best birth story I know is the one I saw in my own second grade
    classroom a few years back.

    When I was a kid, I loved show-and-tell. So I always have a few sessions
    with my students. It helps them get over shyness and 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 or limitations on them. If they want to lug it in to school
    and talk about it, they're welcome.


    Well, one day this little girl, Erica, a very bright, very outgoing kid,
    takes her turn and waddles up to the front of the class with a pillow
    stuffed under her sweater.


    She holds up a snapshot of an infant. 'This is Luke, my baby brother, and
    I'm going to tell you about his birthday.'


    'First, Mom and Dad made him as a symbol of their love, and then Dad put
    a seed in my Mom's stomach, and Luke grew in there. He ate for nine
    months through an umbrella cord.'


    She's standing there with her hands on the pillow, and I'm trying not to
    laugh and wishing I had my camcorder with me. The kids are watching her
    in amazement.


    'Then, about two Saturdays ago, my M om starts saying and going, 'Oh, Oh,
    Oh, Oh!' Erica puts a hand behind her back and groans. 'She walked around
    the house for, like an hour, 'Oh, oh, oh!' (Now this kid is doing a
    hysterical duck walk and groaning.)


    ' My Dad called the middle wife. She delivers babies, but she doesn't have
    a sign on the car like the Domino's man. They got my Mom to lie down in
    bed like this.' (Then Erica lies down with her back against the wall.)


    'And then, pop! My Mom had this bag of water she kept in there in case he
    got thirsty, and it just blew up and spilled all over the bed, like
    psshhheew!' (This kid has her legs spread with her little hands miming
    water flowing away. It was too much!)


    'Then the middle wife starts saying 'push, push,' and 'breathe, breathe.
    They started counting, but never even got past ten. Then, all of a
    sudden, out comes my brother. He was covered in yucky stuff that they all
    said it was from Mom's play-center, (placenta) so there must be a lot of
    toys inside there. When he got out, the middle wife spanked him for
    crawling up in there.'


    Then Erica stood up, took a big theatrical bow and returned to her seat.
    I'm sure I applauded the loudest. Ever since then, when it's
    show-and-tell day, I bring my camcorder, just in case another ' Middle Wife' comes along.




    Live every day as if it is your LAST chance to make someone
    happy!

    That is fantastic! I love that story! My grandma was a headteacher at a primary school (ages 4 to 11) and she had books upon books of stories like this that she has written down throughout her 40+ years of teaching starting from her very first day. I love reading them as they always make you feel great. This story is a winner! I love it! x x x
