The newest member of Oak Park Village Trustee Susan Buchanan's family made quite the entrance Oct. 5. Brianna Hill, the wife of Buchanan's nephew Cameron Andrew, was taking part one of the Illinois Bar Exam when her water broke. 

Instead of abandoning her exam, Hill finished part one of the test before heading to West Suburban Medical Center, where she delivered baby Cassius at 11 p.m. that night. The next morning, Hill completed part two of the exam from her hospital bed, putting a new spin on the phrase "working mom."

So much for "women can't deal with stress" like men can.
