We admit it, there’s a little alien growing in our belly, a parasite that steals the nourishment we eat, makes us fat, makes our ankles swell, and we LOVE it. That little son or daughter (or both!) can really raise a stink in the confines of their first home and we’re here to share that with you in all its glory.
Now, for those of you who aren’t having kids any time soon (or ever) we know this may look a little freaky. It looks freaky to us too, but it also looks magic. (Hey moms, remember? Remember this? The elbow here? The little butt over there? That kick to the ribs… did that ever get better? Anyway, back to it…)
Yes, ok, there’s a person growing inside another person, doing stuff, moving around, making weird BUMPS, and ridges, and valleys and everything you never imagined when you thought of what it was to be pregnant. We’ll concede that it’s weird. Where’s that smooth, round belly, slightly warm, soft but firm, full of life but also the epitome of peace? Go rub our dad’s bump after a big dinner. We’ve got a party going on in ours.
