Yesterday when I was thinking back on my son being thirty now I remembered the ride to the hospital. I know that men get excited and nervous and all they really want to do it get the laboring woman turned over into the hand of professionals.
However scaring a person half to death on the way there does not help at all. We were fine and all I really wanted Jim to do was slow down and stay calm. Telling him that did not change how he drove that day or the day our next one was born either.
