That boy has some balls. "What I want from you is your help along
the way." I said "You're keeping the baby?" He asked me "Yes I am.
Nothing you will say will talk me out of it." I said "I kind of
figured that. I'm not really ready to be a father and with me being
in Oklahoma." He said "How about you send money once a month for
the baby?" I said "that will work out." He said "Okay good." I said
"don't worry I wont want to take the baby from you." He said "Okay.
That is all I really had to say. I will talk to you later." I said
"Lex?" He asked "What?" I said "Let me know the sex please." He
said "K." I said hanging up. I curled up on my bed and let the
tears come. I haven't talked to him since that day I saw him
kissing Lauren. Momma came in and rubbed my back. "Don't cry Lexie.
It's not good for the baby." She said "I know but I told Ethan." I
said "Lex, you will get stronger as each days passes." She said "I
know momma." I said "Lexie what do you hope to have?" She asked me
"honestly a little girl." I said she smiled "Be careful for what
you wish for. I got seven little girls." She said "I'm sorry
momma." I said "I know you are. But I guess this is God telling us
that we need a baby in the house. Better you than me. When the
teachers are back in school next week we will sign you out and then
sign you into the home schooling system." She said "okay momma." I
said lying back down to fall asleep. The day they start school is
the day of my first doctor's appointment. I'm getting scared a
little now, tomorrow we're going to sign me out and sign me in. So
I can begin school work. I know it will be hard but I can handle
it. I have talked to Lauren and she didn't sleep with him so I have
nothing to worry about. I have been informed that it could be
likely for me to have twins or more. I'm hoping I just have one but
I'm not so sure about that. "How may I help you two?" The principal
said she was at the front desk. "I would like to sign Alexis
Blevins out of this school." Momma said "Yes ma'am, we can do that.
Can I ask why?" She said "She wants to be home schooled and we're
going to let her do that." Momma said and she nodded. "Cheerleader
and track player wants to be home schooled." She said shaking her
head. "We're going to miss you here." She said I nodded and we
droved to the home schooling system. "How may I help you two?" we
were asked "I would like to sign Alexis Blevins into the system."
Momma said and we did that. "Alexis you can sign up for classes
tonight and be approved in no time." She said "Thank you ma'am." I
said she smiled at us. I got home and created an account and momma
made hers and I signed up for eight classes for this semester and
that will be my junior year. The next day which is August 23rd I
started my junior year and began working as much as I could do. I
finished three module in each class by the 5th of September.
Because I sleep, wake up and work on school work. By the 8th from
staying up late on the 7th I finished my segment in the classes so
I have half a credit. I also have a little baby bump! It's so cute!
I don't think I'm having one baby but I still love the bump. I woke
up on the 8th after three hours of sleep to puking my guts out.
"Morning sickness Lexie." Momma said as I walked into the living
room. "I know momma and I hate it." I said the girls nodded. "Have
a good day at school!" I said and they smiled at me. "Have fun!
Good luck!" they said and I smiled at them. We went to the doctor's
and I was told that I was having twins and we nodded and I got to
see them on screen and I smiled at my babies. I knew right then
that I was keeping them. We made it home and I looked into my room
I had enough room for two cribs. "My study can become their room."
Momma said "I kind of want them in here." I said "trust me Lexie no
you don't." She said "okay." I said. I worked on the other segment
and finished it in two weeks so now all I need is eight more
credits and then I'm done with high school. I'm going to do college
online so I can get a good job. I woke up at four every morning did
three assignments in each class. Was done by noon and then we
worked on the office and then I went back to school work until
midnight and went back to bed. So it's my second month appointment
in three days and I'm halfway done with my senior year. While
Savannah and Lyndsey are only a month into their junior year.
"Alexis, your babies are healthy and so are you. You just need more
sleep." She said "yes ma'am I understand." I said "how much re you
getting?" She asked "four hours." I said "Alexis that isn't good."
She said "yes ma'am I will get more." I said she nodded. I'm ten
weeks in and I was told that my diploma will be mailed to me and
that I could begin my college career. And I did and I worked even
harder on that getting only an hour of sleep. My body is going into
over load I know. My boobs are swollen, my feet are, my back hurt.
I look like I swallowed something round. But I'm enjoying every
moment of it. I think I will be a good mother to my kids.
