I got up at three and I made sure Starry had enough bottles and I put my scrubs on and then I pulled my hair up and kissed Austin good-bye. I went to work and Anna saw me and smiled "Good morning my Lexie!" She said "morning." I said smiling at her "How was your few days off?" She asked "I went to the hospital on Christmas due to Kelsey's breaking her arm, Bella broke her ankle yesterday." I said "rough days." Anna said and I nodded, I went to do my work and Nicole smiled when she saw me and I told her everything, she isn't Alice nor will she ever replace Alice. Work was really busy until I clocked out at noon and then I went home, Austin was on the couch with Kelsey and Bella curled up with him and Starry was in her swing just hanging out. "Let me change." I said and then I heard "mommy!" "Sissy!" "Lexie" I changed quickly throwing on sweats and a t-shirt. "I'm here." I said and Kelsey climbed into my lap "How are you feeling?" I asked "horrible." Bella and Kelsey both said and I smiled "You will be okay." I said "I have to head into work." Austin said "I know. I love you." I said kissing him good-bye. "Okay girls, it's just me here. Can it be easy on me?" I asked and of course not, they both wanted things, both claiming they were hurting and then Starry started to cry.
After I finally had them settled in bed for the night around ten, Austin wasn't home yet. I paced around the house and my cell phone went off I quickly answered it "Hello?" I asked "Is this Alexis Blevins?" Somebody asked this was Austin's phone, who is this? I finally spoke "This is." I said "This is Officer Long, your husband was involved in a car crash. He is being rushed to the hospital." Officer Long said "Thank you." I said and I called Allie "Hello?" Allie asked "Did I wake you?" I asked it was ten thirty, "No. What's up?" She asked "I need you or your mom to baby-sit. Austin is hurt." I said "I"m on my way." She said I pumped enough bottles and as soon as Allie showed up I went out. I made it in time and the same nurse was there "I swear I didn't do it, I wasn't even with him." I said "He's in room 200." She said and I went to the room and all he had was a broken leg, a broken rib, a sprained wrist. "What happened?"I asked "Oh Lexie." He said and I hugged him "My light turn green, but some idoit didn't stop and slammed into my side. I'm fine, my car isn't, but the other one is worse off than I am." He said and I hugged him, "They did a cast tonight. Blue." He said and I rolled my eyes at him.
It's January 7th the first day of classes, I'm up at five and I fix Starry's bottle, she's on formula and a little bit of cereal now. I change her and get her diaper bag ready, I wake Kelsey up and I change her and she goes into the kitchen, Bella started school on the 3rd so she was up and walking. Austin came out in his crutches and I had to bite my lip, we're driving together since he can't drive and then Jake is going to bring him home. I loaded Starry, her diaper bag and her into the car when Bella was walking over, got Kelsey in the car, got my backpack and Austin's backpack into the car and then slowly helped him in the car. On the drive over to the day care Austin was talking "Look at it this way, we get to see what you do at work. We are preparing you to be a good nurse." Austin said and I smiled at him, I pulled up to the daycare and got Starry's car seat and diaper bag and had that on one arm and then carried Kelsey in the other "My poor baby." The worker said and Kelsey nodded. I handed both over and smiled "Her pain medicine is in her bag."I said "Thank you, have a good first day at school." She said and I smiled at her.
I pull up at school and I get his crutches from the back and I give him his backpack to even out his weight and then I walked with him to his first class and walked to my first class where I saw Allie. My schedule this semester: Monday, Wednesday, Friday: 7:00-9:00, 9:30-11:30, 12:00-2:00, Tuesday and Wednesday: 7:00-9:00, 9:30-11:30. Around two I went and saw Austin and smiled "You look so cute." I said and he rolled his eyes at me. I went to work where I worked 2:30-7:30, went home gave everyone a bath and then began my homework. I finished around midnight, and then woke up at five again. This will be my weekly schedule for the next four to six weeks. I'm looking forward to it all. "I'm sorry Lex." Austin said Friday night, "It's okay baby." I said and he smiled at me, his accident ended up the news because the person was a drunk driver, the driver survived and is being pressed with charges for being a drunk driver, he has been charged with a DUI. I'm smiling at Starry who is sitting up in her baby pillow.
It's the following day and we're inside today since it's cold and nobody can really play. Starry is in her swing being happy about it, sucking on her fingers she learned how to do that. Austin, Bella, and Kelsey are on the couch. I had to work 4am-noon and when I got home they were there and I smiled.I changed into my ripped jeans and a cute baby tee. "Allie was supposed to stop by." I said "Allie and Karen both." Austin said and I smiled "It's just it's hard for you to handle three kids." I said "Because I'm broken?" He asked and I kissed his cheek. The door bell rang "I will get it. Nobody get up." I said and they stared at me, Bella had her boot off but she was propping her foot up. "Hello?" I asked seeing a beautiful woman in her early twenties, baby blue eyes and brown hair standing there "Um hi, does Austin Blevins live her?" She asked nervously "he does." I said "Please come in." I said and when she walked in and saw Austin she smiled but was still nervous. "Girls can you go watch TV in your room?" I asked and Bella put her boot on. The girl smiled at the baby and then Austin, it took a minute to register who she was "Sophia." Austin said, Sophia?
