“What is it?” I asked.
“It’s you,” she replied a little offended. Clearly I should have known better!
“See, there is the baby in your belly!” Sure enough! I was actually quite surprised that she drew a baby instead of just a fat belly, but I guess she has been to the doctor with me enough times and seen the sonograms. How neat that she actually pictures her baby brother when she sees my big belly! Oh and I love how my belly in the drawing actually goes into my face. Truly it feels that way!
“What’s the yellow part?” I asked her.
“That’s your skirt.”
I asked what the scratchy markings were below my skirt and she couldn’t tell me. Maybe she’s seen how hairy my legs are! Shaving isn’t quite as easy as it used to be you know!
The red circle she told me was Daddy’s ring and the little in the middle Mommy’s ring. I love the bigness of his ring in perspective! They really do see their daddy as a giant in many ways.
I will cherish this drawing, but, uh, I think I’ll hide the markers!
