Inside Of Me

Yesterday we were at WalMart. Serge was off looking at fishing poles or something like that. I wandered over to the baby aisle to check out the goods. They had this teddy bear - it has a knob in back and if you crank it on the bear imitates the sounds going on inside of me. It's all whooshy whooshy and you can hear my heart beating. You're supposed to put it in the crib and it helps the baby sleep because it reminds it of being in the womb. It was a trip to hear what the baby is hearing right now. Made it all the more real. As if the all day nausea hasn't, but still.
