Hi, Mom. It’s me, Tomomi.
Tomomi! How are you?
I’m fine. Umm. I’m going to the hospital tomorrow as planned.
I know, I know. I’m so excited!
Did you pack everything? Don’t forget your jacket, okay?
I did, and I won’t forget. You have to keep warm when you are pregnant.
I know. You told me many times.
And did you pack your socks?
You must bring long, thick socks to cover your ankles. Oh, and remember to bring lots of towels.
Mom, I already packed them.
How about your husband? Kazuaki-san will be there, right?
Yes, he is taking the day off from work. So he’s going to be with me at the hospital tomorrow.
Call me as soon as the baby is born, okay?
Of course, Mom. I’m excited, but your father is so much more excited than I am.
He’s telling everyone that he’s going to be a grandfather.
Tomomi, is everything okay? You sound a little sad.
No. It’s just.
What is it?
When did you really feel like you became a mother?
]What do you mean?
