There was an implicit ‘We’ today. She didn’t said the word but the meaning was quick and clear. We. Meaning her and the child within. She is creating life. I’m out here watching it happen and helping as much as I can, but I’m not the only other part of ‘We’ anymore.

Sure, she could do the rest of this on her own, but it’s all so much easier with me around. At least, that’s what I keep telling myself. We. All three of us.
