Fourteen years ago today, Scott and I went to the hospital three weeks earlier than we'd expected to, and Cordelia was born. It was a short labor (fortunately for me!), and she was born about 6:15 p.m. I mostly remember that I thought it was important, right away, to tell her the names of every single person I could think of who loved her already.

I won't say that every instant over the years has been joy and bliss, but I do feel profoundly blessed to have her in my life. Scott and I both do our best to make sure that she never doubts that she's loved and accepted.

Anyway, fourteen years. It doesn't seem like anything near that long, but it's indisputable. 2017 minus 2003...

We won't be celebrating today because Cordelia's got a big school project that's due Friday and is really eating up her time. She’s supposed to make a twenty page picture book with a minimum of one sentence a page about the history of the US, hitting certain points, and, in it, identify the part of speech of every single word she uses. She's also supposed to label independent and dependent clauses and write in whether each sentence is declarative, interrogative, imperative, or whatever that fourth category is. (Hers are, not surprisingly, all declarative.) I think that all that's left is the twenty illustrations, but those are likely to take a while.

One of my senators just sent out an email that included this paragraph:

"In case you haven't heard the news, they finally appointed a special counsel to get to the bottom of President Trump’s connections with Russia. It will be Robert Mueller, former director of the FBI under both President Bush and President Obama."
