The Grand Inquisition

image

This is the face that stares up at me with piercing eyes as he approaches every now and then to interrogate me on a subject that’s unreal to him as of yet, though he is able to sense its transformative power, the dim outline of its implications:

“You dot a baby in your tummy, mama!?” he will ask, his tone always incredulous. 

“Yes, Jack, I do have a baby in my tummy!” I say. “Do you think it’s a boy baby? Or a girl baby?” I ask.

He pauses. Then nods his head affirmatively and says, “A dirl. A dirl baby.”

So that’s the consensus from the under three set. We find out later this week if he’s right.
