Gen 3: A beginning-Babies 2, 3 and 4
"I think so." I bit my lip as he slightly whispered "This will feel weird, tell me if I hurt you..." I laid my head back on the chair and hummed a tune to myself.
I giggled at his attempt to make conversation, but I knew him too well. "I'm moving out sometime after this one is born. The 'rents are letting me hang out for awhile just so I can kinda get used to the whole idea of being a '100 baby challenge mom'...like getting used to that would be easy..." I shuffled my feet and he looked around with nothing more to say..
"Did grandma give you pop again?" I sat her down on the heels of her shoes and she trailed right behind me. "Grandma knows not to give me pop. Grandpa gave me a little bit because I bugged him about it over and over."
When the door to my room closed I dumped the flowers into my trash can and picked out the note attached to the stems. It read "Ande, I realize we haven't talked since before you left but I was just hoping you'd want to hang out some time. Its okay if you don't want to, that's alright. Give me a holler sometime." I read this note once before throwing it with the flowers into the trash. I'm not sure that Arley knows that the last thing I want is a relationship.
"Hey momma!" She yelled as she kicked the radio and her favorite song blasted through the room and she started to dance. "What are you doing? Raiding the room?" I asked with a laugh on my tongue.
"Dance with us and then it will be a full raid!" Genesis just laughed.
"Hey, Ande. Would you mind keeping an eye on Abel and Eden tonight so me and dad can go out on a date?" I furrowed my eyebrows and stared at her, she began to beg. "Ande, me and your dad haven't been out together alone since our honeymoon and even then you were there." I nodded while biting my lip.
"Don't stay out too late and don't get drunk."
"Don't worry about us, we'll be good kids." She laughed and closed the door again so I could be alone for 5 minutes with my thoughts.
"Guys, go to your room. Aunt Eden and I have to talk for a few minutes...."
Eden stared at me as soon as the door closed with a very concerned look on her face.
"Eden, I want to ask you a very important question. Its yes or no and I need you to be fully truthful with me..." She continued looking at me and I just smiled. "I'm starting a 100 baby challenge and I want you to be my children's godmother. So if anything happens to me, they'll be in your care."
"You want to trust ME with that? Shouldn't you make Aphrodite their godmother or something? She's older and you trust her more..."
"If you don't want to...then its ok. I'll ask Aph...You were my first choice to take care of my children though."
She poked me in the shoulder and whispered...
"Yeah...I'll do it. But you have to promise that you won't let anything happen to you."
"I promise..." She smiled as I took her hand and kissed it. Then I got up slowly and put the kids to bed before heading there myself.
That was the moment I realized that I left my children to the girl who's mind is corrupt. This girl needs some quality time with reality and a good lesson on what not to do with your life and that would be give it away to a man who would do anything to hurt you. The only exception to this is daddy.
I bit my lip and nodded at him while he checked my stomach and temperature one last time.
"Will it be as bad as last time?" I asked, my hands shaking in fright of what might be to come in the morning.
"It's always pretty bad but not quite as bad as the first time. Pretty soon, you will be used to it...I hope."
I collected my items and in fear, returned home.
"You go on, sweetheart." Dad said, beckoning me in for a hug. "When you wake up, I'll get you some breakfast and then you can watch TV until they decide its time." He rubbed my back a little in order to calm down my shaking and it worked...Both of them could easily see that I was scared and wasn't ready for this again.
"We'll be here to help you, we promise..." Mom implied, taking my hand. "Just call us if you need us...okay?" I replied with a simple "Alright." and went off to my room.
I got into bed without changing or even taking out my contacts. I was intent on sleeping right away, but it seems like babies 2, 3 and 4 had a different idea.
"Mom, dad...Babies want out." Is all that I said and soon enough, they were by my side holding my hands... and in all honesty, I wouldn't want it any other way.
By the time it was over and done with, I was the mother of 3 brand new baby girls named Aanjay, which means "unconquerable." Aaralyn, which means "with song."And finally Aaleahya which means "Sunshine."
Spencer was right, not quite as bad as the first time but I will never like the feeling of labor. I have 96 more to go and hopefully I'll get used to it someday...hopefully.
