19 years ago today, after 19 hours of labor.... I gave birth via C-Section to my now 19 year old daughter.
I still have the scar to prove it. I still have the child to prove it, too. I have a few other things as well.... like most of her baby clothes, some of her baby hair, a cute little ID bracelet, 400 videotapes of her waving goodbye and about 24,000 photos of every momentous and non-momentous occasion in her life.
I also have this:
... She had a shoe fetish back then...
(her normal shoes were cuter...)
