... of things to come.

We're in the new apartment.

It's a mess.

We have too many things!

This evening we were getting ready to go buy groceries
to make a meal for a family that needed a little nudge of help.
I got my coat on.
Got my keys.
And my roommate, Tiffany, was still sitting at the dining room table
pressing on her stomach.
Tiffany is expecting in February.
"She kicked," Tiffany said.
"I want to see if she'll kick again before we leave."

We waited.
No kicking.

Tiffany picked up a hammer that was on the table
and said,
"The end of this hammer is about the same size
of the thingie they do the ultrasound with,
and when they move that on my stomach,
she goes nuts."

So she gently pressed her big fat belly
with the end of that hammer,
and while we dissolved into giggles,
Madelyn got spunky and kicked back.

Tiffany's in for it.

    Oh, darlin'! So you're going to have a wee one in the house soon?? My goodness, what an experience. Although, I'm a bit concerned that you two are using a fetus as a play thing. I mean, don't you have anything else to do with your time??? ; )
