Cora's due date was May 14th. That year, May 14th fell on Mother's Day. I've always viewed it as a cruel joke of the universe, "let's see just how bad we can make this for her!" So Mother's Day has always been inextricably connected to her. I never told people she was due on May 14th, I always answered "Mother's Day!" The interesting thing is, though, May 14th was not my original due date. My original date calculated from my last period was May 9th.
Which is today. And today is Mother's Day. It feels like it's following me around.
So I bought myself this as a gift to myself.
