Boredom set in as I play Tetris into the early cold, December morning. At 3 a.m. I finally give in and shut off the game to go to sleep. It is not like a pregnant woman like me has anything important to do tomorrow. Sleep overcomes me so fast that I have no time to think, no time to worry about the day ahead. Sometimes the memory, like the pain fades, but in life altering situation like giving birth to a child, the memory lasts and is full of both unpleasant and fulfilling memories.
Suddenly, I am awakening to a moist feeling. I glance at the clock; it is only 4:30 a.m. Did my water break No way. My due date is not until another month and besides, I do not feel any contractions. I rush to my mom?s bedroom to wake her up.
?Mom, wake up! I think it?s time.?
?Kim, is it morning already Can you wake Linda up for school?
?Mom, it is time for me to have this baby! I think my water broke!?
Jumping out of bed like a piece of toast popping out of a toaster, my mom rapidly puts on a sweater and pair
