july birthdays 2029

Nico Pacelli turns thirty-seven, and is spending his birthday planning his upcoming wedding. Originally he wanted a low-key affair, while Erin definitely wanted the dress and the ceremony. They may have spent more time compromising, but his family jumped in with all their opinions and Nico knew that he was definitely outvoted.

They’d hired Eva who likely regretted her entire career path since having to work with his Mom and sister-in-law, Ginny. Nico knew his Dad was ready for the ceremony to be over with, he was exhausted being dragged to every which place, asked his opinion, and then ignored entirely.

Merrill (74 years), Grant (52 years), Leah (49 years), Nolan (10 years),

narrated by: Leah

I’ve spent my entire marriage just going along with the popular vote, which meant that I lived with my inlaws for my entire adult life, and raised all of my children under their strong presence and vocal opinions. Until we sold the cabin a few years back, I had at least a bedroom that was decorated to my taste.

After her passing, it became abundantly clear to Grant that we needed to move. It was his childhood home, and he works at his family business; he has never had to say goodbye to anything or anyone. The move was especially hard for him and Merrill.

the birth of a mother

august 2028

He had wanted three, she had planned for two.

Nothing had gone as expected, nothing had fit her plan. How naive she had been thinking she could just plan a conception, schedule a pregnancy around sports so her career wouldn’t flounder. She had pitied women who had given themselves up for infants and diapers, but it had taken more than two years for that positive, and she felt ready to barter away anything for two pink lines.

Dr. Morgan had checked them both, and found that it was her. It wasn’t impossible as they would eventually realize, but it wouldn’t be easy. Elise should relinquish any thought of planning a due date, she had suggested gently.

When the pregnancy tests kept showing up negative, Peter eventually suggested they just try for one or maybe they’d be the type of couple to travel the world. He began to paint visuals of this future with only one child or none, a master painter on the canvas, he couldn’t hide his pain from Elise.

narrated by: Hadley

I graduated med school last June, and have a fancy MD tacked at the end of my name, but I still have four more years left of residency to be a surgeon. Neil is going to be a General Practitioner, and already has more responsibilities and trust than I do, which is perturbing. I understand that in the end, I will be light years ahead of him, but being treated like I’m ignorant because my residency is longer is asinine.

Dr. Morgan had ordered Nadia to be induced the next day, but the twins were on their way during the early morning hours. Kai and Mavis had already been dropped off at Erin’s house in preparation for the next morning, and they had been thoroughly enjoying their night without kids. Probably too much enjoyment, as the twins were now en route.
