My entry, at exactly 50 words, is about the wonder and curiosity a child has about the baby growing inside his or her mother.

HELLO BABY

[spacer height=”20px”]

You’re quiet inside mama’s belly. What are you doing in there?

[spacer height=”10px”]

Listening?

[spacer height=”10px”]

Sleeping?

[spacer height=”10px”]

Dreaming?

[spacer height=”10px”]

You’re moving inside mama’s belly. And I can feel what you’re doing in there.

Kicking.

[spacer height=”10px”]

Stretching.

[spacer height=”10px”]

Twisting.

[spacer height=”10px”]

You’re noisy outside mama’s belly. I can hear and see what you’re doing now!

[spacer height=”10px”]

Screaming!

[spacer height=”10px”]

Squealing!

[spacer height=”10px”]

Smiling!

Hello baby!
