baby of mine

I couldn’t believe Rosemary was four months old already; it seemed to have flown past though neither of us could remember what we did before we had her. She was very sweet and rarely fussy, which made adapting to parenthood relatively easy.

After feeding her, she’d happily play on the ground while I got myself ready for the day. My twin brother, Peter had struggled when his daughter, Irina was born. She cried constantly, always needed held, and even now, she wants all the attention. I’d never tell my brother, but his wife, Elise has always been a handful herself, it makes sense their daughter would pick up that personality. We were college roommates, so I know from experience, but my brother has never dated a chill girl in his life, he definitely has a type.

september 2030 birthdays

Logan and Kai celebrate their birthday this month. They walk home from school, and empathize with eachother about their crazy sisters. Logan always wins the most pity with Mallory; she’s been throwing more tantrums than ever since their Mom got married.

Logan doesn’t think it’d be bad if his Mom had another baby, but Mallory swears she’ll run away if she does. Kai doesn’t even know what to say, he’s always been happy with his little sisters, and loved his step Dad Luca too.

When it came to her childhood and Mom, there were many things she’d have done differently. The consequences had been heavy, but this wasn’t one of those great regrets. This was simpler, but still deep.

When he’d asked her out, she’d said no. It had seemed wise at the time; she hadn’t wanted to jeopardize the band. But on the eve of her final high school days, and no longer a band-mate, it felt like she had sacrificed too much.

narrated by: Elise

Our nanny, Lexi arrives in the morning while I’m struggling to reheat dinner for breakfast. I still haven’t gotten the hang of parenting, housekeeping, and work. It’s this juggling act that apparently I’m not cut out to do. Thankfully Lexi is very gracious over my messes and even helps clean up while I’m gone.

march 2030

Ella Carver celebrates her eighteenth birthday with a trip to EU. She hasn’t decided yet if she will attend next fall, but she’s pretty positive she will be accepted. She takes her final SAT test this spring, and then she will need to make her decision.

Her sister, Marisol didn’t come to the tour. They’ve never been very close, and Cesar hasn’t been successful in his attempts to bring them together. Manny came though, he’s always been Ella’s cheerleader, and the most akin to her and their late Mom.

Both of the men in her life are really pumped at the idea of college for Ella.
