How Did Your Labor Start?

TOTALLY out of curiosity: How did your labor start? For example, did you begin to dilate and then X amount of time later go into labor? Did your water break before or after you began to dilate? How long were you in early labor before you went into active and then transitional labor? And so on and so forth... (Alright, I'll be honest.

Too Much Princess?

My parents watch my 2 year old two days a week and are great with her. They have more than just a occasional grandparent role in her life and have a big influence on her.
