I woke up around seven and looked in their cribs and Starry was
up and waiting for me with her arms out. So I picked her up and
placed her on my hip when I walked downstairs I heard yelling
outside. Callie was yelling at my dad, who reached out and
slapped her. "I hate you!" She yelled and open the door to come
in but my dad grabbed the door. "Starry come on." I said and she
only giggled at me. Momma came in from the laundry room wiping
her eyes. "Callie is a drug addict. That's why she has been
acting up." My mom said and I froze, Starry was looking at me.
Somewhere between the transfer from Middle to High school and
Allie's death, Noah's and Blake's moving in, the girls being born
my sister became addicted to drugs. Blake came down with Stormy
on his hip and she held her arms out for me to take her. They
both had longer hair now, still looked just like Allie and me.
"BLAKE!" My dad yelled and he went running and helped pinned
Callie down who was struggling. Noah came down with two half
awake babies and my mom took Autumn.
Callie just finally stormed in the house and up to
her room locking her door refusing to come out. Ryan came down
and smiled at his nieces and his adopted nieces. "They are a year
old today." He commented and I smiled "Why yes they are." I said
and we all started talking with the Callie drama we all forgot
what today was. So within no time we got everything ready and the
guests started to arrived. Mostly family but Hope was here, yet
Hope is consider family to us all. "To the girls! May they have
the best year of their lives!" My mom said and we all cheered and
video taped the girls eating their birthday cake.
I told Hope all about Callie and she couldn't believe
our sweet Callie. Who will leave for treatment after school lets
out. My mom wants her to at least finish school, so we're keeping
an eye on her at school and off of school she is grounded so she
doesn't go anywhere. I hate how things have turned up but Callie
created it on herself. "I'm done!" Callie yelled trying to
interrupt my girls birthday. "Callie shut up." I said and she
stalked in here. I could smell alcohol on her breath and she
stunk of pot. "You're drunk and high." I stated but she didn't
care. Blake just picked her up and carried her back to her room
standing guard so she wouldn't leave as the party ended quickly
The 20th- 4th was final exams mixed with Graduation
practices. We have a big Cheerleading competition on the 6th.
Then on the 7th and 8th it will be full gear into graduation
processing. On the 6th we all got in our cheerleading uniform and
with my family and friends support we won the competition. All
the seniors really cared for that because it was amazing, our
last time as a team and we won the biggest things of our lives.
We will all be starting our journey down life in a matter of
days. On the 8th Noah left with the girls and Blake brought boxes
We packed four boxes and called it quits for the
night. I was by the rocker and he was by the bed and he had
Stormy and I had Starry. "Walk to dada." I said and she slowly
took a step walked a little, then fell, got back up, walked a
couple, and then she fell again, but walked to her daddy. "Dada."
She said momma was video taping this whole thing. "Walk to mama."
Blake said to Stormy who giggled. She took a few steps fell,
rolled over got back up and walked a couple steps, fell, but then
walked to me and said "mama" Starry crawled to me and said
"mama." Stormy crawled to Blake and said "Dada." She said and we
all smiled at that, daddy came in and smiled "Looks like they're
learning something too." He said and we smiled Noah texted me and
said that they walked some! I texted back and agreed and said
that they walked a little too!
I woke up early due to being so nervous and excited
at the same time. Callie has been a pain, getting an attitude at
everybody expect for Stormy and Starry, she is actually as sweet
as can be to them. I walked into the kitchen and started a pot of
coffee. I knew I should have taken advantage of this time and
took a shower with nobody being up but the sun was now rising and
the sky was beautiful. I poured myself some coffee and walked
onto the porch and sat on the swing. I brought my legs up to my
chest and slowly sipped my coffee watching the sky, the birds,
our neighbors going on with their business for the day. I heard
the door open and turned around to see my daddy holding Stormy in
his arms. "She was up, just a babbling away." He said sitting
next to me, he traded me Stormy for my coffee cup. "Baby girl." I
said and she giggled laying her head in my lap. Daddy then walked
out with his cup and my cup and handed it back to me. "Thanks."
After about five minutes of silent my mom came out
with Starry, "Let me guess she was just a babbling away?" I asked
her "Yes ma'am." She said and handed Starry to me. "Are you ready
for today?" She asked me "As ready as I will ever be." I said
"We're proud of you sweetie. You're graduating high school, going
off to college in August. And you're an amazing mom to Starry and
Stormy." Momma said "Thanks." I said and looked at the time. "Do
you mind feeding them?" I asked and my mom held out her arms for
Starry who agreed quickly, Stormy followed so she walked inside
with both girls on her hips. I kissed my daddy's cheek and went
inside to my room and Blake was waking up now "I call shower." I
said getting my cute summery light pink dress and bra and thong
set. He nodded and kissed me good morning as I walked into the
bathroom and shutting the door.
I came out with my hair down and all curly, my make
up was done and I was ready to go already. I picked up Starry and
placed her on my hip then picked up Stormy and carried them to my
room. I got out a purple summery dress for Stormy and a pink
summery dress, same style for Starry. After Blake, and then Ryan
took his shower I got the girls a bath and Callie actually helped
me and then she took her shower. But I got the girls dressed and
ready and kissed their foreheads. "I will see you at the
ceremony." I said to them and they smiled at me. "Thanks mom." I
said and she smiled, Blake followed me with our caps and gowns,
we had to go to our final rehearsal right before the big thing.
But of course we were all told to go to the gym one
last time as a huge group. Our group sat together one last time.
Memories of Allie, Hope, Blake, and I sitting on these very
bleachers for class lectures, pep rallies and everything came to
my mind. Now it's the new group, Blake, Hope, Noah, and me
sitting together. "I can't believe this!" Hope said and I smiled
"I know this is our last day together like this in high school
and in college." I said "I know, I'm sorry but Brown is a great
chance for me." She said and I smiled "I know, but we have to
hang out when we're all in Rhode Island." I said "You know it."
She said and I smiled, her family was going to Paris for the
summer to celebrate her finishing High School and her older
brother Jake finishing College.
Noah will be spending half the summer down here and
the other half in Oklahoma with her family. So the girls will
still get to play together and we all love that, I can't believe
that this is our last day as a family. Callie is going to
treatment, my parents thought they didn't have to send her
because she promised she wouldn't touch the stuff anymore but
they found a stash last night. So she ships out tomorrow to a
medical treatment in Jacksonville. They all handed us out
breakfast sandwiches saying we needed to eat and then we were
given the big speech about how to act today and everything.
