Both of my kids scored a healthy 10! Some things you just never forget.

The picture's also funny because mom's dressed and hovering over baby, which isn't really possible one and five minutes after birth. *lol*

4/5--I have no idea what the APGAR was for any of my kids. I didn't ask and they didn't tell. The photo with this quiz is pretty funny--that mom looks so worried. Like maybe the baby's low APGAR score will keep it out of a good college.

I ought to know the answers to these...I myself was a 10 when I was born. Best score I ever received in my life :-P

I knew as soon as I hit "enter" with #2 that I was wrong and that the total should be 10. Oops. I can't remember any of my kids' actual scores, both immediate and second scores. All I remember is that the first one, both were high, the second, the first was really low and the second was middle, and the third, both were high.
