strangely domestic

Etienne Bernard ( years), Violet-Adele McCarthy ( years), Noémie (1 year)

Etienne transitions into Fatherhood seamlessly, and now Noémie is a toddler, he’s hitting his stride.

In his career, there is no where for him to go, as his wife has the highest paid position in the county, and he never wants to move again. So he occupies his free-time with Noémie’s upbringing; she will be the smartest, most well-adjusted preschooler to ever step into Longfellow Elementary.

He bundles her up, because it might be too crisp for her. When she was an infant, Violet-Adele teased him of sweltering her with all the layers, so he is relieved she can now vocalize any discomfort or just tear layers off herself.

narrated by: Lainey

Michael works the weekend shift, putting in his time being the lower ranks while my Uncle Charlie and Dad have the weekends off. They never did when I was growing up though, and I do hope Michael will eventually have weekends off before Silas has grown up entirely.

I do enjoy my time with Silas alone though, without having to be concerned over Michael’s opinions and wants. Silas and I can bond on our own terms, which I appreciate. Whenever I think I’m not so great at the relationship aspect, I can see the way Silas looks up to me, and I feel like I’ve got the Mom part down.

Cesar called a family meeting, asking Ella to come home for the weekend from university; it was to announce a new move for the family.

The twins had grown up in the apartment, it was their first home after their Mom died, and they didn’t really recall Annie at all. So it was really the only home they’d known.
