Chapter 2.4

I swear that my mother is superwoman.

During our third trimesters she tended the garden…

and cooked two weeks worth of meals so the family would have plenty to eat while we were recovering from delivery.

She even made sure I had all my food cravings satisfied.  If I wanted to eat it, she had it ready.  I am so lucky to have her as my mom.

What did I do during my last trimester?

I did some sleeping…

And some more sleeping.  In fact, I slept almost my entire pregnancy.  I ended up quitting my job in the military so I could sleep more.  I took a job as a video game programmer because I could work from home now and when the little one gets here.

Garrett was super great to both me and mom.  Mom said dad was a lot like that during her pregnancies.  Sounds like I got a good one.

“Oh, Garrett, the baby is moving!  Speaking of that…I’m due in a couple weeks.  We need to get our butts in gear and find a house and some baby furniture.”

“Well we will never have a house in time but let’s get some furniture at the consignment shop tomorrow.”

“My mommy sense is tingling.  I think tomorrow will be too late.”


“Yeah, I think we are gonna meet this little bundle sooner rather than later.”

“Oh.  Yay!?”

“Let’s go to bed, babe.  Tomorrow is going to be a long day.”
