Due Date

20 Jun

On the Porch

Forty-two years ago today was my “due date”. I was living in Florida and pregnant with our second child. The heat and the already mischievous son I was carrying were making me miserable.

As the days passed and he still had not make his appearance, I remember walking in the shopping mall and seeing moms from my childbirth class with their babies in strollers. I confess to feeling a bit resentful.

Am I weird or do other moms remember their due date?
