NK has a baby in the tummy game.
Does Mamma have a baby in her tummy? Yes, nods Norah.
Does her aunt have a baby in her tummy? Yes.
Does her uncle have a baby in his tummy? Naaahhh.
Does Santa have a baby in his tummy? Sometimes yes. Sometimes no.
Does NK have a baby in her tummy? Oh yeah, she nods vigorously. Then she sticks out her tummy and has me talk to it.
We play this game a lot.
Then today, NK and I went with her mamma to the midwife to listen to the baby’s heartbeat.
And we walked into the midwife’s office, and Norah looked alarmed and blurted out in Swedish.
“No baby in tummy!!!”
