A Present For A Parker and Baby 69

First of all, ;)

the important people know what I mean. 

Second- Happy start of Advent Everyone, and um... happy Decembeard. And stuff. 

The first thing I did when I woke up that morning was talk to Carmen. She had loosened up considerably over the night and was much more willing to speak to me. I learnt that she had been living on the streets since she was thirteen, which was about when her little sister was born and both her parents had been murdered. Because the police never found the bodies of her family, they never looked for her, and she had been left to end for herself. 
"Would you like to stay with me full time, and for me to adopt you?" I ask. Carmen nods strongly, and hugs me, before quickly pulling away, looking like she had thought that wasn't allowed. Trying to calm her fears, I hugged her myself, and then went on my day-to-day business.  Most importantly of that was packing up so that I could move to Sunlit tides when Paisley went back. After that came laundry, food, kids, and skills for Evita and Haven. 
I was pretty occupied for most of the morning, until Baldur came running into the garage, looking like he might cry if anything too drastic happened. "Mom!" he shouts, and I raise my eyebrows at him. "IheardweweremovingandIdn'twannagobecauseIjuststartedgoingoutwithAmeliaandI'llhavetoleaveherandgotoHawaiiandIdon'twannago." The words come out in such a jumble that I have no idea what he's actually saying, so I get him to slow down and say it again. "I don't want to move to Hawaii and leave Amelia all alone."
So, before we leave, I agree to allow him to age up and move out. Here he is:
Then, to help with the moving, I age up the triplets. 

Annie grows up to be very rebellious. Everything she used to do willingly for me she now protests until I threaten her with punishment, except caring for her younger sister Haven. She loves that child like no other. 
Parker is just as quiet and bookish as she was before. She has to wear glasses now, but in my opinion it really fits her new look. Her favourite thing to do is play with the new dog. She nicknamed him Slender because he's always following her around. 
And Beckett. Hes the most unusual of all. On the outside he's the typical jock. He is very athletic and sporty, and he's trying out for the all teams at Sunlit Tides high school, but he's also very smart. His school work is excellent and he always gets A's and does his homework. And he is dating one of the more unpopular girls, a testament to his kind heart and ability to see beauty everywhere. But my favourite part about Beckett is that he is so very loving towards me still. 
When all that is finished, and packing is done, we jump on a plane, Paisley beside me in the front seat and jet off down the country to Hawaii. As soon as we get there the heat is sweltering, and while I would never tell Paisley this, I hate the heat. I am instantly glad of my tank top and cropped trousers, which at least allow some heat out of my body. Carmen and Evita seem to enjoy it though, and straight away she is happy and cheerful. I may never know her past, but at least I can help her enjoy her future in a very sunny place. 
After we arrive at our house I leave the kids to explore and get used to the new rooms, and Paisley and I make a little trip to the AI clinic, where I am inseminated by this guy:
After our trip, Paisley returns home over the street to her house, and I return to mine. When I'm there, the children are nowhere to be seen. I look around for a while, however and find them in their special room, which I nicknamed 'The Crib'. When they see me come in, Beckett and Annie grin and continue to dance.
Safe in the knowledge that I know where my teens are, I decide to go and find Haven. It is the perfect time to teach her to walk and talk. With that in mind I walk into the nursery grab her and walk outside to the area by the pool. Here, I sit her down and teach her to walk, and talk. Thankfully she has already been potty trained.
I wonder if Evita has been taught these things, because she did not seem to be very vocal when I last saw her, and this leads me to wondering where she is. I text Parker to tell her that I'm going out, and set off looking for my adoptive child. I find her not long later at the beach closest to our property, she is sat down, while the younger is a short way off playing in the sand. I sit down next to Carmen, and we remain in companionable silence for a little while. "She love the beach." says Carmen. "My mother. It was always her favourite place. I had a picture of her sat in the sand in one of those big hats on my mirror. Then I had to leave, and I never got to get it back." she continues. A silent tear trickles down her face, and I slip an arm around her.
As if to interrupt our gathering, Evita toddles over (she can walk, clearly) and pulls on her sister's hair. "Sissy. I wanna go back." she says. Carmen glances at me, and I nod. "C'mon then short stuff." she says, jokingly to her younger sibling. We set off on the short walk home and arrive not long afterwards at our new homestead.
Almost immediately, I am met by Beckett, to ask if we can put up the Christmas tree before dinner. I agree, and the next hour is spent singing along to various Christmas songs while younglings dart about left, right and centre. And if I may say so, the house ends up looking pretty good.
I'm interrupted just before dinner with a sudden urge to vomit, and rush to the bathroom just in time to avoid getting puke on the new carpets. I can just imagine my face had I done this. Then, as if on queue, the baby bump appears.
I prepare dinner without anybody noticing, and then we sit down to a simple fare of pasta and meatballs. It is a nice meal, punctuated with occasional conversation, focused primarily on our new home. And following dinner, after a long day we all prepare to bed down for the night.
The next two days pass as standard. Paisley and her kids visit a couple of times, I sleep a lot, and watch some TV. Then, around 10AM on the third day, I go into labour and give birth to Baby 69- Victoria Viven Everard.

Sorry this is so short. I sort of... petered out at the end. But new children, yay!


  1. <3 Good post even if it was short! I love your blog :)

    I love the name Victoria Viven, it's so pretty :3 the alliteration goes well ^_^

    I actually like short posts because they're easier to read. I love the long ones too, if you were wondering ^_^

    1. *_* Della commented on my post. This is special moment in my life. Ahem.

      I'm glad you like it. I'm also glad you don't mind the shortness. And the name... I think they both mean royal. Which is a tad presumptuous, but oh well.

      And I'm also glad you enjoy long posts too. I... um... I don't have much of a reference length wise, but sometimes I feel I'm cheating people out of a good read. In any case, thank you for reading.

      And commenting. And reading.



  2. Eeep! Adorable name! I love it...and you're finally in Sunlit Tides! Wooopie!!! And holy murder! I'm sad for Carmen and Evita! I hope that kind of luck doesn't follow...I loved this post even though it was short...

    1. I'm glad you like it. And yes. I moved. Paisley and the creator were getting insistent. But Skye hates it. Heat plays havoc with her.

      Their luck might be beginning to turn. Because now they have a loving mother ho will love them and cherish them and feed them birthday cake a lot.

      I hate how short it was, but positive feedback is lovely.
