Of her arrival at my house, mom looks up the stairs at me and announces:
"Oh! You're not that big!"
Me [Aghast at any possible downplay of the giant belly I am dragging around]: Are you kidding me?! Look at this thing! [Turns sideways.]
Mom [Now standing next to me]: No, you don't look all that big.
Me: Nuh-uh! Check this out! [Immediately start pulling up shirt and pulling down waist of pregger shorts.]
Nothing says "Love" like stripping down for your mom to show her your vast expanse of belly.
And then I hugged her.
