When we met, my husband and I did.not realize this included us. We thought the first time was a fluke. Surely it was pure coincidence that our son was born in November, sharing the same week of birthdays, with my mother, and my husband's father. It was not until we were expecting our second child, when we discovered how dangerous the month of Febru- ary was. Nine months later, in November, four years and two days after the first child, our daughter came into the world. (It hasn't been the same since!) Our children's births may have been a blessing, but their birthdays, two days apart, have become a curse. In February, my husband and I avoid each other. Come November, we avoid our children. "How come he gets to have his birthday party first?" My daughter shouts. "Because he was born first, so get over it," I not so gently remind her. I could try to alternate which child has their party first. My daughter would only find another reason to argue with me, on how unfair life is. As overly emotional adolescence fast approaches, I figure it is safer if we stick to the same argument every year. For the past several weeks, both children have been working to weaken my husband and I into letting them open the birthday cards from their grandparents early. On the morning of my son's birthday, he came bound- ing upstairs ready to tear into his birthday cards before school. "Uh-uh," we told him, ''Technically, 14 years ago, you were not yet born." He considered it ridiculous that we would make him wait until after 2:12 p. m. "It's called a birth day people, not birth hour," he protested. I reminded him that 14 years ago at this time, I was suffering gut-wrenching pain and unpleasant gastrointes- tinal problems. I thought I ate something bad the night before. Silly me! I was in labor. Considering my recollections of his birth, I didn't think it would kill him to wait a few more hours to open his birthday cards. My daughter always wants to know the cute little details of her birth. Her grandfather calls her 'speedy.' This should be enough explanation. She wants to know more. "We got to the hospital. The doctor stopped by to check on us. He sat down, turned to the nurse, and luckily turned back in time to catch you, before you fell on the floor. What more do you want to know?" "Well, were my eyes open when I was born?" She asks. "Gee honey, I don't know. I was sort of on the wrong end of the baby at the time," I tell her. What I wouldn't give, right about now, to show my children the blessed event their birth hours were! In my haste to maintain one last shred of modesty and dignity, which they effectively strip you of in pregnancy and childbirth, I missed a golden opportunity. My mother and father were in attendance with my husband during the birth of our son. I imagine this was the first time any of us saw a child be born. My father had his camera, but somehow I managed to stop screaming long enough to shout at him, "No pictures!" Shoot! What was I thinking? We should have given him a video camera! With our son now 14, and our daughter turning 10, I would have the perfect use for those videos. Forget gentle, open and educational discussions about the birds and the bees. Forget my husband's confusing metaphor about the apple and a worm who wears a raincoat. I think a little childhood trauma is in order. If a scary movie can make children afraid of the dark, think what they might be afraid of, after watching a real- life video of their birth! With popcorn and soda, wouldn't this be great enter- tainment for my children's back to back birthday sleepovers this weekend? Meanwhile, Back at the Ranch. Attention birthday attendant parents! Do not worry. I do not actually have any such videos. -Tonya R.
