"F" Fertility!

This month, and maybe the month or two after, will be my "F Fertility!" months. This mama-to-be needs a break! That's right, I said it, "mama-to-be". I am not a "hopeful mamma" or "currently trying".

One day, last week, my son, R, and I arrived at school drop-off early. Twenty-five minutes early. This never happens. Never. We were the first ones waiting in the school parking lot due to the freezing temperatures. I had decided to drive him that day, instead of making the typical walk from our home, around the town reservoir, past the dogs playing in the snow, and into the school door marked number two....more
