Four years ago today was my due date with Jackson. I remember people would ask when I was due, I would answer "March 15th," and they would say, "Ooh, beware the Ides of March."

And I would say, "What?"

The Ides of March is simply the name of March 15th on the Roman calendar. According to wikipedia, it was a festive day dedicated to the god Mars and also the date when Julius Caesar was killed. The phrase "Beware the Ides of March" was made famous in Shakespeare's play Julius Caesar.

There. You learned something new today. Unless you already knew all of this, in which case today's blog post was a waste for you. And for that I am sorry. Come back tomorrow please. ;)
