New nephew

On Wednesday, Dorothea got the call from pregnant sister in Bemidji–now is the time–contractions five minutes apart. After a school meeting, Dorothea, her sister’s designated doula, drove four hours at eighty miles an hour and got there just after transition. The baby boy was born about two hours later.
Today is my mother’s 90th birthday. So what just happened two days ago happened 90 years ago. And the sister, who is about 34 is really only a few years younger than my grandmother would have been when my mom was born.
And I am sitting in the dining room of a 95 year old house. It would have been new back then.
