This week, we’re paying tribute to all expectant moms—those who already have kids and those who are expecting for the first time.
An ode to big, beautiful bellies
A little angel starts its journey in the belly of its mommy
And as the angel starts to grow, so does mommy’s tummy.
From just a little bump at first, it grows so big and round
Until one day, nine months on, mommy hears that magical sound:
The cries of her newborn baby, so new it doesn’t even have a name
And mommy knows from that moment on, her life will never be the same.
Whether in the first, second or third trimester, mothers’ bellies are a source of fascination for everyone who sees them. People wonder how many months pregnant mommy is, whether she’s expecting a boy or a girl, or even twins or triplets. Will baby look like its mommy or daddy? Will it be born with dark, red or blonde hair? What will the baby grow up to be—a journalist, a chef… maybe even an astronaut?
And it’s not just adults who have so many questions; the baby’s future siblings are just as curious, wondering what their new playmate will be like. One thing is for sure: as soon as that baby arrives, it will be welcomed into the world with open arms by its mother, who will love it unconditionally for the rest of its life.
So to all the mommies in the making, and those of you who already have little ones, we raise a glass (a smoothie, since we want to keep it healthy!) and wish you a very happy Mother’s Day!
