Nearly winter

by nicolecallihan

This is my cup of peppermint tea: 
and this is top of my pretty Christmas tree: 
and then this:
(say it!)
a baby growing inside me. 
 (A girl. An already sweet as taffy kicking girl.)
Yes, it’s true: I’m six months pregnant, and I feel as big and as happy
as a Thanksgiving Day Parade balloon.
(I float down city streets; I laugh; I sup on sugary cereals.)
Happy almost winter, everyone!
