On This Day In History:

Jesse Owens won his fourth gold medal at the 1936 Berlin Olympics. He won it in the 4×100 relay and set a world record with his team that lasted more than 20 years. This was a great day in sports history and we’ll reflect more on that in the Fitness blog, but your son or daughter can be proud of their birthday in history as a blow against Nazi propaganda.

On This Day in the Future

Five years from today, you will be getting ready for your son or daughter to start Kindergarten. Most states require the child turn 5 prior to September 1. So in five years, you will be getting ready to dive into the school marathon. Savor the next five years as your baby grows, develops and becomes the little person that they are.

Was your baby born on August 9?
