It was late at night and Alison, who was expecting her second
child, was home alone with her 3 year old daughter, Katelyn.
When Alison started to go into labor, she called “911.” Due to a
power outage at the time, only one paramedic responded to the call.
The house was very, very dark, so the paramedic asked Katelyn
to hold a flashlight high over her mommy so he could see while he
helped deliver the baby.
Very diligently, Katelyn did as she was asked. Alison pushed and
pushed, and after a little while Connor was born. The paramedic
lifted him by his feet, and spanked him on his bottom. Connor
began to cry.
The paramedic then thanked Katelyn for her help, and asked the
wide-eyed 3 year old Katelyn what she thought about what she
had just witnessed.
Katelyn quickly responded, “He shouldn’t have crawled in there
in the first place. Spank him again!”
