The Things They Say

Little Boy and I- we stand alone together in a darkened Great Room on a Sunday Evening Family Night.
He reaches up and places one small hand on a belly covered in pink (yes bright pink fleece) and it is mine.

“Why is your belly so puffed out?” He asks, shy smiling.
“Because the twins are in my belly!” I say. And grin.

Blue eyes wide. “They are in your belly?” He asks wonder and yes he has been told this before.
He laughs.
