    Birth Order of Children

    Your Clothes:

    1st baby: You begin wearing maternity clothes as soon
    as your OB/GYN confirms your pregnancy.

    2nd baby: You wear your regular clothes for as long as
    possible.

    3rd baby: Your maternity clothes ARE your regular
    clothes.


    Preparing for the Birth:

    1st baby: You practice your breathing religiously.

    2nd baby: You don't bother because you remember that
    last time, breathing didn't do a thing.

    3rd baby: You ask for an epidural in your eighth
    month.


    The Layette:

    1st baby: You pre-wash newborn's clothes,
    color-coordinate them, and fold them neatly in the
    baby's little bureau.

    2nd baby: You check to make sure that the clothes are
    clean and discard only the ones with the darkest
    stains.

    3rd baby: Boys can wear pink, can't they?


    Worries:

    1st baby: At the first sign of distress -- a whimper,
    a frown -- you pick up the baby.

    2nd baby: You pick the baby up when her wails
    threaten to wake your firstborn.

    3rd baby: You teach your three-year-old how to rewind
    the mechanical swing.


    Pacifier:

    1st baby: If the pacifier falls on the floor, you put
    it away until you can go home and wash and boil it.

    2nd baby: When the pacifier falls on the floor, you
    squirt it off with some juice from the baby's bottle.

    3rd baby: You wipe it off on your shirt and pop it
    back in.


    Diapering:

    1st baby: You change your baby's diapers every hour,
    whether they need it or not.

    2nd baby: You change their diaper every two to three
    hours, if needed.

    3rd baby: You try to change their diaper before others
    start to complain about the smell or you see it
    sagging to their knees.


    Activities:

    1st baby: You take your infant to Baby Gymnastics,
    Baby Swing, and Baby Story Hour.

    2nd baby: You take your infant to Baby Gymnastics.

    3rd baby: You take your infant to the supermarket and
    the dry cleaner.


    Going Out:

    1st baby: The first time you leave your baby with a
    sitter, you call home five times.

    2nd baby: Just before you walk out the door, you
    remember to leave a number where you can be reached.

    3rd baby: You leave instructions for the sitter to
    call only if she sees blood.


    At Home:

    1st baby: You spend a good bit of every day just
    gazing at the baby.

    2nd baby: You spend a bit of everyday watching to be
    sure your older child isn't squeezing, poking, or
    hitting the baby.

    3rd baby: You spend a little bit of every day hiding
    from the children.


    Swallowing Coins (a favorite):

    1st child: When first child swallows a coin, you rush
    the child to the hospital and demand x-rays.

    2nd child: When second child swallows a coin, you
    carefully watch for the coin to pass.

    3rd child: When third child swallows a coin you deduct
    it from his allowance!!

    Pass this on to everyone you know who has children...
    or anyone who KNOWS someone who has had children...

    (The older the mother, the funnier this is!)

    GRANDCHILDREN: God's reward for allowing your children
    to live.
