Let me start from the beginning. I was four weeks pregnant, and my mom was in town visiting. A sweet little baby shop at the end of my street was going out of business, and for months I had been admiring these darling, pastel-coloured tutus artfully displayed in the store window. I finally had an excuse to buy a tutu. There was only one problem: I didn’t know whether I was having a girl or a boy.
