11 years ago.... by dmrams

11 years ago....

11 years ago I was 9 months pregnant and one day over due....I wasn't feeling really well but it was BUNCO night and I COULDN'T miss BUNCO!!! NO WAY!!! As the games begin, I started feeling even worse, but hey, I had had several false alarms so this is probably one too and I dont want to miss BUNCO for a false alarm!!! Then I start feeling contractions, but they aren't THAT close together...I can wait...after all this is my THIRD child....I don't HAVE to go in RIGHT when the contractions start....plus I'm WINNING so I can't leave!!! Then it got to the point where the contractions were coming closer together and hurting much worse....okay, I give in.....my friend takes me home, graciously takes my other 2 kids home with her, while Tim and I rush to the hospital. Miranda was born the next morning at 6:13 am.....my BUNCO friends gave me a pair of fuzzy dice to remember the night before Miranda was born...the night I didnt want to stop playing BUNCO...not even while in labor!!! :)

** I wish I knew where I put the dice they gave me!! Notice the numbers in the picture add up to 11--how old miranda will be tomorrow and that was HER idea...she's so creative!!
Aww...great story. Tell Miranda Happy Birthday from me! (I heard Bunco is fun but have no idea how it is played.)

You're so funny! I kept myself on the Bunco list as a sub so I wouldn't get sucked into playing every month...as my neighborhood friends did for *years*! I understand the attraction...and *contraction*! *Yikes*! Tell Miranda I love her idea for a photo, and tomorrow, **Happy Birthday**!
