I lay on my couch one Saturday not very long ago, half watching animated movies with my kids. And in the part where Nani sings the Aloha song to Lilo? I had real tears running down my cheeks.
Don't ask me what that's all about; I barely know whether I'm coming or going these days. But I know it's got something to do with the polar bear in my closet. The one I smuggled into the house from Dubai a while back, and that's been living between my t-shirts and sweat pants ever since.
And in between the barfing, the fainting in the shower when I wash my hair and the endless tiredness, I'm wondering whether this will be a boy or girl. Whether I'm going to feel like absolute shit right up until the end. And what about names?
Am I really doing this all over again?
