Vogue-U Potion - "Middle Wife"

May Allah Blessed Us....


I received an email from my colleague titled "Middle Wife" and it made me pondered...hmmm middle wife would be the 2nd wife before the 3rd wife or probably the 2nd and 3rd wives before the 4th wife....huhu. So out of curiousity I read on further. And after reading the email, it made me giggled and laughed out loud.


It was written by an Anonymous 2nd grade teacher. And the story goes like this........,


I've been teaching now for about fifteen years. I have two kids myself, but the best birth story I know is the one I saw in my own second grade classroom a few years back.


When I was a kid, I loved show-and-tell. So I always have a few sessions with my students. It helps them get over shyness and usually, show-and-tell is pretty tame. Kids bring in pet turtles, model airplanes, pictures of fish they catch, stuff like that. And I never, ever place any boundaries or limitations on them. If they want to lug it in to school and talk about it, they're welcome.


Well, one day this little girl, Erica, a very bright, very outgoing kid, takes her turn and waddles up to the front of the class with a pillow stuffed under her sweater.


She holds up a snapshot of an infant. "This is Luke, my baby brother, and I'm going to tell you about his birthday."


"First, Mom and Dad made him as a symbol of their love, and then Dad put a seed in my Mom's stomach, and Luke grew in there. He ate for nine months through an umbrella cord."


She's standing there with her hands on the pillow, and I'm trying not to laugh and wishing I had my camcorder with me. The kids are watching her in amazement.


"Then, about two Saturdays ago, my Mom starts saying and going, 'Oh, Oh, Oh, Oh!" Erica puts a hand behind her back and groans. "She walked around the house for, like an hour, 'Oh, oh, oh!" (Now this kid is doing a hysterical duck walk and groaning.)


"My Dad called the middle wife. She delivers babies, but she doesn't have a sign on the car like the Domino's man. They got my Mom to lie down in bed like this." (Then Erica lies down with her back against the wall.)


"And then, pop! My Mom had this bag of water she kept in there in case he got thirsty, and it just blew up and spilled all over the bed, like psshhheew!' (This kid has her legs spread with her little hands miming water flowing away. It was too much!)


"Then the middle wife starts saying 'push, push,' and 'breathe, breathe. They started counting, but never even got past ten. Then, all of a sudden, out comes my brother. He was covered in yucky stuff that they all said it was from Mom's play-center, (placenta) so there must be a lot of toys inside there. When he got out, the middle wife spanked him for crawling up in there."


Then Erica stood up, took a big theatrical bow and returned to her seat. I'm sure I applauded the loudest.. Ever since then, when it's show-and-tell day, I bring my camcorder, just in case another 'Middle Wife' comes along.


Now we have 2 choices....laugh and let it be or pass this along to someone else to spread the laughs..... haha I think I just did make you laugh!!!!


Live everyday as if it's your LAST chance to make someone Happy! hahahahahaha.....

So be careful when you explain something to your little toddlers. It may turn out to be a hilarious story after that.....



My sis's children, the elder boy, 4 yrs old..... speaks non-stop and hyper-active and sometimes very shy with strangers, he loves the camera though... this photo was taken by me a few weeks back. Sometimes when I corrected his mistakes he would retaliate and sometimes would oblige. Once he followed me shopping and the cute part was he said.."Aunty Tipah, I promise I behave, but you promise don't scold me OK..." and I answered..."Ooohh OK I promise I won't scold you if you promise you behave OK" and then you know what came out from his mouth next..."Aunty Tipah, if I behave, can you buy toy for me, I promise I behave". I sometimes purposely will say.. "No, I will not buy coz you will break your promise when you have toys"..."Nooooo, I promise I behave"..... and he would repeat until eventually he gets the toys lah... huhu

Well children are the innocent beings and a bundle of fun.......

OK vogue-u-ers, may you have a blessed Ramadhan today and happy iftar tonight.....

Lots of Luv from Mak Pah Vogue....... muacks
