I kinda remember that, especially when our daughter was born. I had just spent 9 weeks in Fort Washington, PA attending a training class for my company. Janet had stayed 5 of those weeks with her family in Virginia but flew back down to Texas.
She waited until I came home to get the crib and other baby furniture items. We lived on the second floor of an apartment complex at the time I remember carrying up all that stuff and assembling it.
At about 3am the next morning she woke me up and told me that I should call the doctor. I told her that I didn't want to bother than man at 3 o'clock in the morning! As usual, I gave in.
He picked up before the first ring stopped!
"Uh, Doctor Greco, this is Craig Wilkins, Janet Wilkins husband and she told me to call you."
"Is she having contractions?"
"Are you having contractions?"
"Yes she is".
"How far about they?"
"About a minute or so..."
"GOOD GOD, MAN! GET HER TO THE HOSPITAL!!!"
Well, when I heard the inflection in the doctors voice, I got a "little" excited.
"HE SAID WE HAVE TO GO TO THE HOSPITAL RIGHT NOW!!!"
I did three circles putting on my pants, found a shirt from somewhere and put my shoes on! I went and woke 2 1/2 year old Nathan and away we went...to the wrong hospital! We got to the right one at 3:10am, Tiffany was born at 3:20am while I was still filling out the paperwork.
Cigars for everyone the next morning at work, I stayed for a total of 20 minutes then went back to the hospital to stare at my new daughter with that stupid grin on my face.
