I found this little gem from my college days. It was written sometime before May 2005. Enjoy!
Dad walked into grandma’s warm house with the exciting news. “You have a new baby sister.” My brother and I raced to the door. Dad followed behind us. We jumped on our Hot Wheels and decided to race to the hospital that was a block away. It was a cool, sunny day in the middle of May. We climbed the stairs of the hospital not really caring if dad was behind us or not. We ran to Mom’s room only to find her lying in the hospital bed alone. Sensing our disappointment, Mom reassured us by telling us that the nurse had taken our little sister away just to make sure she is healthy. Dad came and took us into the hallway and told us to look in the window. Inside the window the nurse was sitting in a rocking chair with a baby in her arms. “That’s your sister.” he said. She looked so small in the nurse’s arms. The nurse was rocking her back and forth slowly and gently.
Dad left us standing outside the nursery window. My brother and I stood there for a while just watching the nurse rock back and forth. Dad came up behind us and said, “Okay kids, it is time to go back to grandmas so mom can rest”. After giving Mom a kiss goodbye, we walked down the stairs of the hospital and went outside to find our Hot Wheels right where we left them. We raced back to Grandma’s excited to tell her about our new baby sister.
