Jack finds me out on the couch. I squeeze my eyes shut and sigh. Nap's over.
"Momma." I sit up and wedge a pillow in my back. He sidles up next to me.
"Hi, bud." We sit and stare into space, snuggle. I check my watch. We stare some more.
He nuzzles his face to me and squeezes my arm, "I'll hold you really gentle," he says, "because I know you have a baby in your tummy." He looks up, "I won't forget."
"I know," we smile and then sit some more.
Five more days. Wonder if she'll come on time.
