Besides mom and dad, someone else who is always seems to be around is my fur-sister. I’m not really sure what her name is, since mom and dad call her a whole bunch of different things: Molly, Missy, Little Miss—even baby! But wait, isn’t that my name? Can there be two of us? If we have the same name, does it mean that she lived in here before I did? And if she did, does that mean that my name will change when I come out, too? I guess I’ll just have to wait and see!
One thing I do know about her is that she sure does makes a lot of noise. But, the way she talks sounds a lot different than mom and dad! I can hear her saying “meow, meow, meow” a lot, but I don’t really understand what she means. Maybe I’ll sound like that too when I come out, and will finally understand what she’s saying? For now, I sure hope that mom and dad can understand her, because she
always seems that she wants something!
Although I’m pretty excited to meet her, I’m also a little worried. Right now, she likes to sit on mom
‘s belly, which can sometimes squeeze me a little bit. But that’s not the biggest problem…she likes to do something on mom’s belly called kneading. I’m not sure what that looks like on the outside, but on the inside, I sometimes have to duck and dive to make sure I don’t get whacked in the head! Is she going to knead me, whack me in the head and push me around when I come out, too? And just how big is she? Will I be able to knead her back? Oh, so many questions!
I’ve been quite comfortably living inside of mom’s womb for 29 weeks now. Mom and dad keep talking about what’s going to happen when I come out, but I don’t know what that means, and I’m not sure I want to. I quite like it in here. Although it’s dark, I’m very comfortable, and I have more than enough room to move around. Right now one of my favourite things to do is dance…especially when mom is dancing too! She seems to really like what she calls her “90’s throwback dance tunes.” And although when I get too excited and dance too much, she complains a little bit, I think that she likes when I dance too…it’s a reminder that I’m still around.
Aside from dancing, mom seems to be a pretty busy lady. She always seems to be moving! But, I like when she moves–it always helps me sleep. This weekend, mom went for what she calls a run. Although I can’t quite figure out what she’s doing, because it feels different than dancing, I like the way it feels. Actually, every time she does this, I have a great nap! But, when she stops and I wake up, I’m sure to let her know that I’m awake and ready to dance! And the fun starts all over again!
Something else mom and dad like to do is something they call footy matches. A while after mom went for her run, she and dad went to a footy match–something they called TFC. It seems like a lot of fun, but it sure was noisy! The whole time they were there, mom and dad were singing, yelling and mom ate something called a poutine. It was delicious–maybe my favourite thing to eat yet! I wonder if I can let mom know that I want more of that. Something I’ll have to work on!
I’d really like to figure out what footy means, since dad insists that my dancing is actually kicking and that I am going to be a footy star. I guess we’ll just have to wait and see–maybe once I’m out, we’ll be able to figure it all out!
