The Tape is Looping

When I was about ten weeks along, we told Saoirse that I’m pregnant. And in the three weeks since then?

“How does the baby get to the hospital?”

“What does he eat?”

“What is it doing in there?”

“Does he sleep?”

“I want a girl. Can you go get me a girl?”

“Why do your pants come up so high?”

“Can he hear me?”

“What do I sound like?”

“I want a girl. No, I want a boy.”

“How is your belly feeling today, Mom? Do you need to eat more crackers?”

“Is Quinn going to squash him?”

“I want a boy.”

“How does he get out of there?”

“What happened to your belly button?”

And we were worried that she wouldn’t be excited.
