My Groundhog morning

Have you ever--gently, gently--started to wake up from a dream in which you were newly pregnant to find that your period had started? I'm pretty sure I've lived this precise moment about two dozen times before, and half-expected "I Got You, Babe" to spring to life on my bedside clock radio.

At the dinner table:

Olivia: "Mommy, when I have my own baby..."

Me: "If."

Seems like that's a reflex I could just maybe have stifled with a three-and-a-half-year-old.
