Trifextra - About a Mother
"We're going to lose this baby!!"
"Just do it without the anesthesia."
He cuts. I don't move.
Grinding like a molar being pulled.
I allow myself to scream.
I'm a mother.
I have prepared this post for the weekend Trifextra Writing Challenge. We have to use exactly 33 words and the word 'mother' in honor of Mother's Day. This is the story of the birth of my third son. I actually went on to have two more kids after this...because I am obviously nuts. The photo is actually the son of that son, but they look virtually identical.
