Happy Mother’s Day

Dear Mommy,

Today is mother’s day.
Let me thank you for the times that you took care of me.
I was a two-month old fetus when you learned of my existence. You seemed to be so nervous; I could feel it inside your womb. You must be very ecstatic about the good news.

The following day, I heard you talking with your bestfriend. I could not understand if you were crying or just laughing out loud. Your bestfriend seemed excited, too. She was talking loudly, I could almost hear her scream.

On my 3rd month, you caressed your tummy. Oh, I could almost feel your hands! Mommy, you must really love me! You even took five capsules of vitamins. But the vitamins made me sick! Mommy, I could go on inside of you just fine. Please stop taking those vitamins.

You were an active lady, always on the go. You did not stop playing tennis even when I was terrified by your harsh running and leaping. Mommy, I hate the rollercoaster.

On my 4th month, you talked with a lot of people but the one conversation that I would not forget was your talk with Daddy. He suggested that I should be out of your womb. Why? I was not yet fully developed, I could never survive outside of your womb. Can you not wait another five months, Mommy?

Your heart was beating fastly on that day when you delivered me. I was reacting heavily to the medicine that they inserted on your “tunnel.” I was telling the doctor that I was just a four-month-old fetus. I was not yet ready to see the world. But Mommy, I understand your excitement about me coming. I love you, Mommy.

Mommy, for a minute, I saw your face then everything went black. When I woke up, I was in the company of small babies like me. I feel happy and content here, Mommy. But sometimes, I wonder how it is like to live with you.

Mommy, happy mother’s day! You’re the best mommy in the world!
