Violating Serious Labor Laws

Women say that the pain of childbirth is akin to, say, having your arms ripped out of their sockets over the course of several hours. If that's true, one shudders to imagine what Stacey Herald felt when she gave birth to her 18-inch daughter Katira. Consider, for a moment, that Stacey's just two feet, four inches high. 

That makes Katira about two-thirds the size of her mommy. That'd be a little like a woman who stands 5-foot-6 giving birth to, say, a kindergartener. Or a perhaps a golf bag. Complete with clubs.

Frankly, though, Stacey's just happy to not be pregnant anymore.

"If I laid down, I looked like a snail," she told "That's how big my belly was. I looked like an Idaho potato with arms and legs."

Thanks, Paul. I've been meaning to start "Gross-you-out Monday."*

*not true.

If only I could've found a picture ... of mom and daughter, not the actual birth. This is, after all, a family blog.
