Remember the popular nursery rhyme -

Monday's Child

Monday's child is fair of face,

Tuesday's child is full of grace,

Wednesday's child is full of woe,

Thursday's child has far to go,

Friday's child is loving and giving,

Saturday's child works hard for its living,

But a child that's born on the Sabbath day

Is bonny and blythe, and good and gay.

Wondering what day of the week you were born?

Enter the day, month, and year that you were born. For example if you were born on April 16, 1990 you would enter Day:16 Month:4 Year:90


Day:   
        

Month: 


Year:  
        


So, what day of the week were you born on?

Tuesday's Child

by Julie Alger

All the babies born that Tuesday,
full of grace, went home by Thursday
except for one, my tiny girl
who rushed toward light too soon.

All the Tuesday mothers wheeled
down the corridor in glory,
their arms replete with warm baby;
I carried a potted plant.

I came back the next day and the next,
a visitor with heavy breasts,
to sit and rock the little pilgrim,
nourish her, nourish me.
