The paramedic arrived at the house to find it in darkness. He had responded to the emergency call on his own as there was a power cut in the area and it was a busy night for the emergency services.
The house was very dark inside due to the power cut, so the paramedic asked Jenny, who was only three, to hold a flashlight over her pregnant Mother so he could see what he was doing while he helped to deliver the baby.
Very carefully, young Jenny did as she was asked and held the flashlight so the paramedic could see what he was doing, while her Mother pushed and pushed.
After a lot of pushing and panting, the baby was delivered successfully.
The paramedic told Jenny that she had a new little brother.
He lifted the baby by his little feet and spanked him on his bottom, making the baby cry.
The paramedic then thanked Jenny for her help and asked the three year old what she thought about what she had just seen.
Jenny quickly replied, “He shouldn’t have crawled in there in the first place. Give his bottom another smack so he doesn’t do it again!”
